The recently-released National Energy Policy (NEP) recommended a review of current funding and historic performance of the Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy programs. To facilitate this review, Department of Energy senior officials will receive public comments on the programs in seven regional meetings during the month of June. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) funds research, development, demonstration and deployment (RDD&D) of affordable, advanced energy technologies and practices. This effort is organized around five energy sectors—(1) buildings, (2) industry, (3) transportation, (4) power generation and delivery, and (5) Federal government facilities and are incorporated into 31 programs. A list of EERE's programs can be found at the end of this announcement.
Comments should address: (1) the objectives of the current energy efficiency and renewable energy research, development, demonstration and deployment programs, (2) suggested potential objectives for future programs, (3) implementation of current and future programs, and (4) whether these Federal programs are achieving intended objectives.
The following public meetings will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. From 9:00 - 10:00, the Department will receive comments from public officials only.
