You are invited to register to become a reviewer of applications for funds from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE’s) Building Technologies Office (BTO). BTO is often in need of external reviewers, whether for funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) or for the annual Building Technologies Office Program Peer Review.

EERE recently updated its mission: to drive the research, development, demonstration, and deployment of innovative technologies, systems, and practices that will (1) help transition Americans to a 100% clean energy economy no later than 2050, and (2) ensure the clean energy economy benefits all Americans. In order to achieve both goals, we are expanding our reviewer pool both demographically and disciplinarily. In addition to traditional technology-focused disciplines for reviewers, we’ve recently added new functional categories potential reviewers can select to indicate experience with diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in energy research as well as energy justice expertise.

  • Apply multiple areas of your expertise to EERE’s funding decisions
  • Gain practical knowledge of the EERE reviewer and funding process
  • Build your network and meet new people and potential partners

This registration enables EERE funding opportunity managers to identify potential reviewers and does not guarantee placement. While you cannot review on opportunities you are applying, conflict of interest will be addressed at the point of reviewer selection, so please register even if you are concurrently applying for other opportunities.
