The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE's) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) staff regularly participate in industry meetings and events. Additionally, the Office participates in the biennial Peer Review process, an evaluation mandated by DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The Peer Review process entails a formal, documented evaluation from independent reviewers using objective criteria. The corresponding meetings are used to produce a formal report that assists the Office in improving its productivity, project management, and overall effectiveness in a variety of project areas.
Upcoming Meetings and Workshops
Advanced Algal Systems Listening Session
On June 13, BETO will host the Advanced Algal Systems Listening Session in Seattle, Washington. BETO is seeking feedback from experts in algal biology, cultivation, and conversion on how to address near-term research and development barriers and opportunities for cost-competitive algal biofuels and bioproducts. The agenda will focus on on opportunities and challenges in integrating algal productivity and biomass yield improvements in scalable algae cultivation systems to achieve high yields. The listening session will begin immediately at the conclusion of the 8th International Conference on Algal Biomass, Biofuels and Bioproducts. Detailed agenda and registration information are coming soon.
