Wind Program to host Wind Peer Review

June 7, 2012

Programs with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy are required to undertake rigorous, objective peer review of their funded projects in order to ensure and enhance the management, relevance, effectiveness, and productivity of those projects. In accordance with this requirement, the Wind Program will host the Wind Peer Review public meeting from Tuesday, June 19 to Thursday, June 21 in Alexandria, Virginia from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The purpose of this meeting is to:
