Innovation does not happen overnight.

It evolves from the trials, the errors, and the persistent belief that there must be a better way.

It is a light in the darkness…a response to a call for help…

Innovation is the work of our greatest thinkers…the toil of experience… the spirit of collaboration…it’s where the rubber hits the road.

Innovation allows us to harness the force of our oceans, throw a lasso around the wind, and capture the essence of our sun… all the while redefining strength and efficiency.

Innovation inspires new ideas and radical solutions, transforming the way we think and experience our world.

It is one of our nation’s most valuable exports…a product of our blood…our sweat…and our tears….

The U.S. Department of Energy has been supporting our country’s history of innovation through its national laboratory system since 1931…when much of today’s energy reality seemed like pure science fiction.

These 17 laboratories provide a unique opportunity for groundbreaking discoveries, powerful industry partnerships, and transformative results…preparing our world for what’s next…

Offering the sharpest minds, cutting edge technologies, and advanced capabilities, our laboratories exist to push the industry, and the human experience, forward.

Cleaner…better…faster…and more efficient…

If you can imagine the next breakthrough in energy…chances are…researchers at our national labs are already working on it…

Innovation does not happen overnight…

…nor does it happen alone…

…we invite you to be a part of what’s next…
