All programs within the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) are required to undertake rigorous, objective peer reviews covering their key projects, as well as 80–90% of their funded active project portfolio every two years. This ensures and enhances the management, relevance, effectiveness, and productivity of those projects.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) hosted the 2019 Project Peer Review on April 30‒May 2 in Alexandria, Virginia. Approximately 90% of projects in WETO’s early-stage research and development portfolio were presented to the public and systematically reviewed by external subject-matter experts from industry, academia, and federal agencies.
The 2019 Project Peer Review included simultaneous review sessions of projects across the following 12 WETO technology areas:
Offshore Specific R&D
Atmosphere to Electrons
Standards Support & International Engagement
Technology-to-Market/Small Business Vouchers
Advanced Components, Reliability, & Manufacturing
