In a letter to Department of Energy employees, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu announced that he will not serve a second term. He has served as Energy Secretary since January 2009.

The DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of particle physics, and of basic research in the physical sciences, in the United States. Six DOE national laboratories carry out particle physics research in collaboration with universities across the country. In addition, the DOE oversees the nation’s energy and nuclear programs.

The letter outlined DOE-sponsored advances made over the past four years, and underscores Secretary Chu’s vision that the DOE serve the United States not just as a department of energy but also as “a department of science, a department of innovation and a department of nuclear security.”
