In 2016, DOE launched a program to develop the next generation of leaders in science and energy, national security, and environmental management. OSELP (formerly the Energy Sciences Leadership Group) was developed to introduce the next generation of DOE leaders to the breadth and depth of the National Laboratory system, expose them to the challenges and complexities of managing this system, and equip them with the knowledge, experiences and professional networks needed to succeed as DOE leaders.
Established under the leadership of Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, Under Secretary for Science and Energy Lynn Orr, and Deputy Under Secretary for Science and Energy Adam Cohen, the program was developed and implemented by White House Fellow Teeb Al-Samarrai and DOE Senior Advisors Kevin Doran and David Catarious. Former Berkeley Lab Director Paul Alivisatos was an early and essential advocate for establishing a program to provide a system-wide perspective to exceptional and emerging National Lab leaders.
The NLDC now stewards OSELP. The program is led and managed by the OSELP Director, Mr. Kevin Doran. Mr. Doran is a Fellow of the Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI), a joint institute between the CU Boulder and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Through RASEI, CU Boulder serves as the program’s administrative coordinator.
OSELP is a program of the National Laboratory Directors’ Council, which comprises the leadership of the U.S. Department of Energy’s 17 National Laboratories.
The Department of Energy’s 17 National Laboratories are powerhouses of science and technology whose researchers tackle some of the world’s toughest challenges. The Laboratories support scientists and engineers from academia, government, and industry with access to specialized equipment, world-class research facilities, and skilled technical staff. Together, they are working to solve some of the world’s greatest scientific challenges.
