R&D partnerships overview
ExxonMobil has a robust commitment to R&D investment. Since 2000, we have spent $16.5 billion on R&D across all sectors of our business. With a mandate to meet the dual energy challenge—powering the world while lowering emissions—ExxonMobil entered a 10-year partnership in 2019 with two Department of Energy National Labs to research and develop groundbreaking technologies for reducing carbon output. This collaboration with DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will include research on biofuels, carbon capture and storage, and lifecycle analysis. The partnership is one of the largest agreements between the Department of Energy’s network of national laboratories and the private sector.
We can’t do this on our own — we want to get the big players on our team to help us solve [the dual energy] challenge.
University and national labs partnershipsWe collaborate with leading universities and institutions around the world as part of our commitment to finding meaningful and scalable solutions to meet global energy demand, while also minimizing the environmental impacts of energy use, including the risks of climate change.
