Project Execution & Integration

KeyLogic provided subject matter expertise to the DOE National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) in carbon capture and geologic sequestration, power plant process technology, efficient buildings technology, electric vehicles, smart electricity transmission technology, investment banking, and cost estimation. With the critical technical and management expertise it needed, the NETL moved its R&D programs forward while improving enterprise efficiency with streamlined processes.

Energizing R&D Program Results for DOE NETL

The Client: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) delivers an array of energy and environmental R&D programs in support of DOE’s core mission to advance the national, economic, and energy security of the United States.

The Challenge: To access highly specific, on-demand expertise and capabilities to drive greater results from R&D programs focused on the commercialization of promising technologies.

The Solution: To help NETL increase program success, KeyLogic provided subject matter expertise both on site and as reachback support in multiple areas — including carbon capture and geologic sequestration, power plant process technology, efficient buildings technology, electric vehicles and smart electricity transmission technology, investment banking, and cost estimation. In addition, we helped NETL stakeholders increase management efficiency by reengineering core processes and adding business intelligence capabilities.

Specific KeyLogic support has included:

  • Enabling NETL to successfully comply with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) requirements for reporting return on investment.
  • Delivering large-scale monitoring, oversight, process improvement, and technology support to NETL project managers.
  • Creating instructor-led and computer-based training on upgraded systems and improved project management processes.
  • Writing hundreds of fact sheets and project reports for diverse external audiences, co-authoring numerous technical articles for peer-reviewed journals, and implementing high-quality publishing and communications processes.
  • Providing subject matter expertise for NETL’s participation in a USAID project that centers on helping stakeholders in India improve the efficiency of coal-fired power plants.
  • Performing energy efficiency and renewable energy technical resource assessments and feasibility studies for methane and alternative fuels power plants as part of the Federal Energy Management Program.
  • Transforming a help desk operation into a high-performing information resource team that integrates multiple data sources into executive reports and dashboard tools.
  • Facilitating peer reviews of R&D programs with subject matter experts and tools and techniques to deliver constructive feedback and improve outcomes.

The Result: NETL gained the critical technical and management expertise it needed to move its R&D programs forward while improving enterprise efficiency with streamlined processes. Additional results have included:

  • Seamless Startup. NETL benefited from an exceptionally smooth project startup, with efforts moving efficiently from 0 to 20 task orders and 49 activities supported by 70 KeyLogic staff members and numerous supporting subcontractors in the first year alone.
  • Staffing Flexibility. With KeyLogic’s scalable staffing approach, NETL achieved cost savings through accessing the right resources in the right place at the right time.
  • Faster, More-Informed Decisionmaking. NETL gained a comprehensive view of cost data and task status through KeyLogic’s implementation of easy-to-use management and reporting tools and dashboards.

Throughout this effort, KeyLogic has met every contractual and statutory requirement, including the important small business participation objective. Consistent performance feedback from the customer substantiates a strong, fast startup and solid, cost-efficient technical and management performance in an important site support contractor role.
