Director’s Corner

by Brian Anderson, Ph.D.

A key tenet of NETL’s work is to ensure that a clear pathway exists from idea to market. This is a pivotal role in the energy innovation ecosystem. Leading this charge requires an understanding of industry needs along with a firm foundation of innovation. It requires regional and national partnership across the government, industrial and academic sectors. It requires perspectives and insights from experts across these sectors. 

NETL was recently honored to host Secretary Brouillette and members of the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board at a virtual meeting July 28. The board discussed issues related to the Administration’s energy policies, research and development activities, economic and national security policy, as well as agency branding for the U.S. Department of Energy. 

SEAB members include experts from across industry and government, including multiple energy sectors. During the course of the virtual meeting, perspectives were shared and insights were presented on issues affecting not only the United States, but our global energy landscape. The productive discussions held during this meeting provided valuable input toward guiding the direction of the research endeavors across our national labs. 

The meeting underscored the important work ahead of DOE to enhance our nation’s energy security, and I look forward to building on the many contributions NETL has achieved in this regard.
