BETO 2023 MYPP Thumbnail

This Multi-Year Program Plan (MYPP) sets forth the mission, goals, and strategic approach of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO). The new plan identifies BETO’s research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) strategies and crosscutting programmatic activities, and outlines why these undertakings are critical to meeting the energy and sustainability challenges facing the nation. The MYPP is intended as an operational guide to help BETO manage and coordinate its activities, as well as a resource to communicate its strategy to stakeholders and the public.

BETO’s organizational structure supports identifying and developing broadly impactful renewable carbon resources, conversion technologies, and integrated systems to produce bioenergy and renewable chemicals and materials, with a strategic focus on sustainable aviation fuels. The MYPP details how each subprogram in BETO’s organizational structure supports the office’s overall strategic and performance goals through RD&D strategies. The RD&D strategies described in this MYPP enable sustainable and affordable domestic energy sources, create U.S. jobs and economic opportunities, reduce GHG emissions from multiple sectors of the economy, and increase participation of and benefits to a diverse set of energy system users, partners, and workforce.
