The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) held a completely virtual 2022 Peer Review January 31 – February 3, 2022. The Peer Review gathers representatives from SETO active projects and leading solar industry and academic experts to conduct a review of the SETO portfolio of roughly 325 projects and collect high-level, strategic feedback to support the office in achieving its goals. The findings help DOE identify strategies that will shape our work in the future.
