About the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE): Science is about service—about a commitment to expanding human knowledge and discovery—and it can drive innovation, technology development, and economic progress. This commitment, coupled to unique, world-class capabilities, is what makes the DOE an indispensable pillar of America’s leadership in science and technology. DOE is the nation’s largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences, the steward of 17 national laboratories, the operator of 27 scientific user facilities, and the lead federal agency supporting fundamental research for energy. The DOE laboratories comprise a preeminent federal research system, developing unique, often multidisciplinary, scientific capabilities beyond the scope of academic and industrial institutions, to benefit the Nation’s researchers and national strategic priorities.
