About the National Energy Technology Laboratory The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory that produces technological solutions to America’s energy challenges. For more than 100 years, the Laboratory has advanced technology to provide clean, reliable, and affordable energy to the American people.

NETL’s mission is to discover, integrate, and mature technology solutions to enhance the nation’s energy foundation and protect the environment for future generations. Through forward-looking research and technology development, our team of talented and diverse experts provides technology solutions for today and options for tomorrow.

As the only one of the Energy Department’s 17 national labs that is both government-owned and -operated, NETL is in a unique position to accelerate the development of technology solutions through strategic partnerships with academia, industry and other research organizations. NETL is also the only national lab dedicated to fossil energy research and development, making our team a sought-after national resource.

About Dr. Brian Anderson Brian J. Anderson, Ph.D., is director of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). Anderson manages the complete NETL complex, including delivery and execution of the Laboratory’s mission, and national programs in fossil energy. Anderson came to NETL from West Virginia University (WVU) where he served as the director of the WVU Energy Institute. He has a long history of collaboration with NETL and other DOE national laboratories. He served NETL as the coordinator of the International Methane Hydrate Reservoir Simulator Code Comparison study and in 2011 was awarded a Secretary Honor Achievement Award from the Secretary of the Department of Energy for his role on the Flow Rate Technical Group, a team spanning multiple national laboratories that worked in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. He is also a recipient of the 2012 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on science and engineering professionals in the initial stages of their careers. He served as a member of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) Roundtable on Unconventional Hydrocarbon Development. Anderson earned his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering in 2000 at WVU and his master’s and doctorate in chemical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2004 and 2005 respectively. Anderson’s research interests include molecular, reservoir, and multiscale modeling and simulation applied to energy and biomedical systems.


About Hazelwood Green / Mill 19 Hazelwood Green is located at a nexus of opportunity given its proximity to the economic engine of universities located within the greater Oakland neighborhoods and its adjacency to the existing Greater Hazelwood neighborhood, which contains a strong urban fabric primed for reinvestment. The site serves as a place where research and industry will co-locate, start-ups will have room for growth, and the resulting investments will create employment opportunities for all skill levels. Economic growth will be further supported through the provision of nearby housing options, business district amenities, and immediate connections to natural amenities that exist on the site and within the neighborhood. A synergistic relationship between the site and its neighborhood is imperative to the success of both.
