The 2013 Peer Review opened on April 22, with a plenary session. Pictured onstage are Kate Baker (left), Peer Review Chairwoman; Douglas Hollett, former GTO Director; and Bobi Garrett, Deputy Laboratory Director, National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

On April 22-25, 2013, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Geothermal Technologies Office held its annual Peer Review Meeting at the Renaissance Denver Hotel in Denver, Colorado. 

The annual Peer Review offers geothermal stakeholders an opportunity to learn about the projects funded by DOE across a wide spectrum of technical complexity and funding magnitude, from research and development to demonstration and analysis. The event also opens a dialogue with other respected experts in geophysics, geochemistry, modeling, tools, and more. The office conducts this rigorous review by independent, qualified peers to assess key achievements in geothermal development and to meet strategic DOE guidelines.

The office funds 175 geothermal research, development, and demonstration projects leveraging nearly $400 million in total combined investment. Each project represents a growing technology sector in conventional hydrothermal, low temperature and coproduced, or Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) technologies, as well as technical and non-technical research and analysis.

The annual Peer Review offers geothermal stakeholders an opportunity to learn about the projects funded by DOE across a wide spectrum of technical complexity and funding magnitude, from research and development to demonstration and analysis. The event also opens a dialogue with other respected experts in geophysics, geochemistry, modeling, tools, and more. The annual peer review fulfills EERE’s requirement that all Offices conduct a rigorous, formal, and documented review of all programs and key projects by qualified and independent peers on a regular basis.
