The Bioenergy Technologies Office staff regularly participate in industry meetings and events. Additionally, the Office participates in the bienniel Peer Review process, an evaluation mandated by EERE. The Peer Review process entails a formal, documented evaluation from independent reviewers using objective criteria. The corresponding meetings are used to produce a formal report that assists the Office in improving its productivity, project management, and overall effectiveness in a variety of project areas.

The Algal Biofuels Strategy Workshop will be held March 26–27, 2014, in Charleston, South Carolina. This workshop will focus on research and developments needed to achieve renewable algae-based biofuels. For more information, see the Algal Biofuels Workshop Web page.
Biomass Indirect Liquefaction Workshop
To support research and development planning efforts within the thermochemical conversion program, the Bioenergy Technologies Office is hosting a Biomass Indirect Liquefaction (IDL) Workshop on March 20–21, 2014, in Golden, Colorado.
This workshop will discuss and develop ideas and research areas to advance a potential funding opportunity solicitation. For more information, see the Biomass Indirect Liquefaction Workshop Web page.
Bio-Oil Co-Processing: Expanding the Refinery Supply System Workshop
The Bio-Oil Co-Processing: Expanding the Refinery Supply System Workshop will be held on April 3, 2014, in New Orleans, Louisiana. This workshop will explore the potential to partner renewable technologies with conventional petroleum refining by considering biomass-derived oils as an additional feedstock. Participants will be engaged in discussions about the potential advantages, disadvantages, and challenges of bio-oil integration in the current U.S. petroleum refinery infrastructure. For more information, see the Bio-Oil Co-Processing Workshop Web Page.
