Water Power Program Peer Reviews

You are here

All programs within the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) are required to undertake rigorous, objective peer review of their funded projects on a yearly basis in order to ensure and enhance the management, relevance, effectiveness, and productivity of those projects.

2017 Peer Reviews

In February 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Water Power Technologies Office held its Peer Review Meeting in Arlington, Virginia. The purpose of the meetings was to evaluate DOE-funded water power research and development projects for contributions to DOE’s mission and goals, and to assess progress made against stated objectives. 

The 2017 Peer Review Report is available here.
