2011 Biomass Program Peer Review Meetings

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Biomass Program will be conducting detailed biennial peer review meetings of its activities throughout the first half of 2011. The process will begin with reviews of the Program’s eight technology areas between February 2011 and April 2011. The process will wrap up in June 2011 with a two-day Program Peer Review Conference. The Peer Review is required of the Biomass Program and other Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Programs to obtain independent assessments of the Program’s current research and development project portfolio.

The 2011 Platform and Program Peer Review meetings provide interested stakeholders an opportunity to learn about these federally funded, state-of-the-art biomass energy technology development activities, and they provide DOE an opportunity to obtain meaningful feedback from stakeholders. The information will be useful as the Biomass Program considers future funding and portfolio balance decisions.
