After visiting several project sites in conjunction with NETL partner organizations in Kentucky, the U.S. Department of Energy and the Lab’s Point Source Carbon Capture Team gained valuable perspective to enhance their work on future carbon capture projects.
Quantum Computer
NETL experts are preparing to put quantum computing, a rising, powerful and promising new force for complex and fast problem solving, to work on key energy research topics leading to an environmentally sustainable and prosperous energy future. Quantum computing uses the principles of quantum mechanics to sift through large numbers of possibilities to extract solutions to complex problems at speeds exponentially higher than conventional computers with less energy consumption.

U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) researchers across the nation are accelerating efforts to solve challenging production, transportation and storage issues to put hydrogen (H2) to work as a low-carbon fuel option for a range of critical energy applications. NETL is a key part of that overall effort with work to advance surveillance and monitoring technologies for underground H2 storage facilities that ensure maximum safety.

Funding Opportunity Announcement
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Biden-Harris Administration, through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), announced on Oct. 19 the first set of projects funded by the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to expand domestic manufacturing of batteries for electric vehicles (EVs) and the electrical grid and for materials and components currently imported from other countries.

Across America, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) researchers in national laboratories like NETL are working together to identify and develop containment and monitoring technologies for the safe and effective underground storage of hydrogen (H2). Concurrently, planning is under way to raise public perception and acceptance of the underground storage facilities needed to help make H2 a safe and practical low-carbon fuel source for a new energy economy.
