EERE Plans, Implementation, & Results
EERE Corporate-Level Documents
The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) carries out technology research, development, and deployment through an ongoing process of planning and analysis, implementation, and review. This page includes documents that support EERE's overall, corporate-level program management process, and the results and public benefits that derive from it.
Some of the following documents are available as Adobe Acrobat PDFs. Download Adobe Reader.
EERE works to strengthen the United States' energy security, environmental quality, and economic vitality in public-private partnerships. It supports this goal through (1) enhancing energy efficiency and productivity; and (2) bringing clean, reliable and affordable energy technologies to the marketplace. EERE is organized around 10 energy offices that help accomplish its goal.
Structure and Key Contacts

EERE's Office of Budget provides guidance to all of EERE's offices regarding the preparation of multiyear program plans, and assists the offices to ensure that their plans contain all the necessary linkages to the Department of Energy (DOE), and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) performance metrics and to the President's Management Agenda. The Office of Budget also facilitates development and refinement of EERE corporate goals, facilitates corporate strategic planning, and coordinates EERE participation in departmental planning.
- EERE Program Management Guide—A comprehensive reference manual on EERE program management. The guide contains documentation on the EERE Strategic Management System (SMS). SMS is EERE's executive and program management operating system. For a detailed discussion of the SMS and its relationship to planning, see Sections 2.7 and 4.6 of the Program Management Guide.
Multiyear Program Plans
Analysis (Risk, Benefit, Portfolio, etc.)
- Data for Energy Analysis—Find select sources of data on energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies from throughout EERE and from the DOE national laboratories. These data resources provide information such as prices, savings, use, and state statistics by technology. Also included are links to more comprehensive data collections, policy data resources, and supply and demand forecasts.
- Database of Energy Intensity Indicators in the U.S.—National system of indicators to track changes in the energy intensity of our economy and economic sectors.
- Stochastic Energy Deployment System (SEDS)—SEDS is a capacity-expansion model of the U.S. energy market that can be used to estimate the impact of changes in the national EERE portfolio. Currently undergoing beta testing and development at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
