WASHINGTON, DC - On Wednesday, July 13, the U.S. Department of Energy will host a day long public forum on the Department of Energy Quadrennial Technology Review (DOE-QTR) at the Washington Hilton. The final of six workshops, the event will provide an opportunity for public comment on the DOE-QTR's principles constructing the DOE energy technology portfolio in order to address the nation's energy challenges. U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu will deliver the keynote address and discuss outlining the Department's plan for building our clean energy future portfolio.

In March 2011 the Department of Energy initiated a DOE-QTR to provide a context and framework for the Department's energy programs, as well as principles by which to establish program plans with a five-year horizon. The DOE-QTR is concerned primarily with activities to develop and demonstrate new energy technologies in support of national energy goals.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, please visit the QTR Workshop webpage.
