NETL – Key Features

  • Origins in 1910 with Bureau of Mines
  • DOE National Lab status in 1999
  • Research mandate in fossil fuels
  • 1100 employees including 150 scientists
  • $800M budget with ~$100M internal research expenditures

IAES establishment

2004 - NETL support services contract awarded to Research and

Development Solutions (RDS)LLC (EG&G, Parsons, SAIC,

CMU, Pitt and WVU)

2005 - NETL Funds “Round 1” projects totaling $1.5M to encourage University – NETL collaborations

2006 - NETL Funds “Round 2” projects totaling $6-8M to encourage collaborations between Universities and with NETL scientists

2006 - NETL initiates discussions with and between CMU/Pitt/WVU to

form and energy research institute

2007 - CWP manages “Round 3” research program planning

2007 - IAES and research program formed

slide5

NETL – IAES operating model

  • IAES Fellows have formal affiliation with NETL.
  • IAES research is published and presented as originating from NETL. Faculty and students also represent their academic affiliation.
  • A significant fraction of the research is to be performed on site at NETL.
  • CWP must seek external (non-NETL) sources of funding for the IAES research portfolio.
slide6

NETL – IAES

  • In existence since 09/07.
  • Research funding $13 M/yr from NETL
  • ~$10M in external funding for IAES-related research
  • 24 Resident Institute Fellows (8 x 3 universities).
      • RIF’s establishing labs at NETL and spending 1 day/wk at NETL
  • ~70 Institute Fellows
      • IF’s have collaborative research projects with NETL scientists
  • ~90 students and postdocs working on IAES research program

  • Process and dynamic systems modeling
  • 3. Catalyst and reactor development
  • 4. Carbon management
  • 5. Sensor systems and diagnostics
  • Energy conversion devices
  • Gas hydrates
  • Utra-deep and Unconventional Oil & Gas

Issues and Lessons Learned

  • Not all universities are created equal.
  • Significant effort needed to develop an understanding of other organizations: university – university;
          • university – national lab;
          • national lab – university.
  • Timescales for decision making and program planning differ. National lab is annual. Universities have timescales ~4 years for research activities (but much shorter for some other decision making).
  • Safety and security protocols are entirely different.
