The Department of Energy (DOE) multiprogram national labs are especially suited to find solutions that may be beyond the ability of industry, academia or regulators to tackle alone. As the lead laboratory for the DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE), Idaho National Laboratory (INL) hosts the nation’s critical nuclear energy research infrastructure. The lab supplements this core mission with expertise in national security and advanced energy technologies. INL is distinct within the U.S. national laboratory complex for its strong focus on engineering and applied science, which helps reduce risks associated with deploying new concepts for large-scale, real-world use.
