Many people live very close to one of the Energy Department’s 17 National Labs and don’t even know it. After checking out our new National Labs map, you won’t be one of these people.

The National Labs are charged with developing science and technology to further our nation’s energy sector, and conducting research that spurs greater innovation. Whether it’s learning how to harness the power of a star on Earth or using particle accelerators to reveal new subatomic particles, we think that the research and innovation done at these labs is very exciting and important to share with all Americans.

Our new map, released today, lets you learn more about each lab throughout the country. Click on an icon to learn more about each one. Some labs are very close to each other, so if you see a number in a circle, click on it to zoom in. Pan and zoom around the map to discover information about the labs and click through to see their websites. We hope this tool will help you understand the labs better.
