Meetings

The Bioenergy Technologies Office staff regularly participate in industry meetings and events. Additionally, the Office participates in the bienniel Peer Review process, an evaluation mandated by EERE. The Peer Review process entails a formal, documented evaluation from independent reviewers using objective criteria. The corresponding meetings are used to produce a formal report that assists the Office in improving its productivity, project management, and overall effectiveness in a variety of project areas.
