EERE Corporate-Level Documents for Plans, Implementation, and Results

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.

EERE Overview

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.

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.

Strategic Plans
  • 2016-2020 EERE Strategic Plan: The 2016-2020 Strategic Plan and Implementing Framework is the blueprint for launching the nation’s leadership in the global clean energy economy. This document will guide the organization to build on decades of progress in powering our nation from clean, affordable and secure energy.
  • 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.
  • National Laboratory Impact Initiative Guiding Principles: EERE has developed these principles in a collaborative fashion with National Laboratory leadership to foster a more strategic partnership between EERE and the labs in stewarding world-class National Laboratory science and technology (S&T) capabilities and in delivering continually increasing market impact on energy, security, economic, and environmental challenges facing the United States in the 21st century.

The Office of Budget takes an active role in measuring and monitoring the performance and conducting evaluations of EERE's major programs. The focus of these activities is primarily retrospective — that is, they look back to assess whether planned technical goals were met, and commercialization and market results achieved.
