Department of Energy
The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science supports fundamental research to understand the energy-environment-Earth system connections and their implications for energy production, use, sustainability, and security. The ultimate goal is to advance a robust predictive understanding of variability, change, and extremes, and to inform the development of sustainable solutions to the Nation’s energy and environmental challenges.
DOE’s investments in Earth and environmental system research focus on reducing the
Finally, DOE conducts applied energy research within its Offices of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), Fossil Energy (FE), and Office of Electricity (OE), who use improved predictions as a means to help design and deploy future energy technologies as part of next generation infrastructure, as part of DOE’s energy and science missions.
