The Department of Energy (DOE) will hold a Quadrennial Technology Review (QTR) Capstone workshop on July 13 in Washington, D.C. to improve the agency’s long-term planning and increase its effectiveness.
Steve Koonin, undersecretary for science at DOE, said the review will:
Lay out the nation’s energy challenges in context;
Outline the principles for optimizing DOE’s activities;
Offer roadmaps for various technologies; and
Discuss how the many different kinds of organizations that influence innovation and transformation can work together.
The QTR is a response by DOE to a recommendation in the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) report, Accelerating the Pace of Change in Energy Technologies Through an Integrated Federal Energy Policy.
