The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE’s) Strategic Priorities and Impact Analysis Team (SPIA) performs cross-cutting, gap-filling, and corporate analysis associated with the research, development, demonstration, and deployment of EERE technologies. SPIA develops tools and methods to enable consistent evaluation and analysis across EERE, and serves a leadership role in related analysis across DOE, other government agencies, and external stakeholders.

SPIA’s mission is to provide evidence-based, portfolio-wide analysis for energy decision makers in EERE and beyond.

Why it Matters

  • We inform EERE's corporate decisions and program implementation, and help drive cost-effective decisions.
  • We provide the information to explain the impact of EERE's programs on the U.S. energy supply and demand, on job creation and the economy, on U.S. industrial competitiveness, on the local and global environment, and in other areas to drive future public and private funding.
  • We provide analysis and promote understanding of how various policy options affect markets, business development, and clean energy deployment and adoption.
  • We work to increase the transparency, rigor, and utility of EERE's data and analysis across offices to provide a credible context for technology investment.
