Future leaders and innovators exploring America’s bioenergy choices.
OPERATION BioenergizeME is the Bioenergy Technologies Office’s (BETO’s) education and workforce development base camp for students and educators and anyone seeking to better understand the promises and challenges in developing a thriving bioeconomy. OPERATION BioenergizeME has a three-fold mission:
- Improve public accessibility to information about bioenergy production and the bioenergy industry.
- Support formal and informal education, including STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and vocational programs, in exploring issues relevant to sustainable production of biopower, biofuels, and other bioproducts.
- Engage future scientists and engineers in developing solutions to technical and nontechnical challenges associated with broad adoption of bioenergy technologies.
The Bioenergy Technologies Office fellowship program provides opportunities for scientists and engineers to gain first-hand experience with policymaking and implementation. Learn more about these opportunities.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) BioenergizeME Infographic Challenge, challenges high school students to design an infographic that responds to one of four bioenergy topics.
