Wind Energy Technologies Office Peer Reviews

You are here

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.
