The mission of the agency is to "ensure Americaâ€™s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions".
Meanwhile, the National Energy Technology Laboratory, more commonly known as the NETL, is a science, technology, and energy laboratory owned and operated by the DOE.
It seeks to achieve and support the DOE by administering grant programs such as the Advanced Computational and Modeling Research for the Electric Power System Project, which seeks to leverage scientific advancements in mathematics and computation for application to power system models and software tools, taking into careful consideration the long-term goal of enabling real-time protection and control based on wide-area sensor measurements.
The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, also called EERE, is an another agency operating within the Department of Energy that's tasked to oversee high-risk, high-value research and development in the fields of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.
It consolidates and oversees quite a number programs and initiatives including the Solar Energy Evolution and Diffusion Studies (SEEDS) which is specifically designed to support the development of a diversity of analytical, numerical, and computational tools and methods; implementation of pilot test strategies for modifying current business and policy practices; and assessment of pilot tests outcomes for impact and scalability.
