The United States Department of Energy (DOE) is a federal executive body that promotes the research and deployment of renewable energy technology while also working to provide a secure and reliable energy infrastructure. It also establishes the country’s research agenda in science and energy.
Energy efficiency and renewable energy, national nuclear security administration, nuclear energy, fossil energy, science and advanced technologies, electricity distribution and energy dependability, and environmental management are all aspects of the DOE.
Throughout the year, the DOE hosts and sponsors a range of events, conferences, and seminars. The International Workshop on Advanced Reactors and Fuel Cycle Technologies, held annually in Washington, D.C.; the National Clean Energy Summit, an annual gathering of political figures, business leaders, and experts dedicated to discussing the most pressing issues surrounding clean energy; and the International Forum on Hydrogen as a Future Fuel, an event focused on innovations, safety, and economics surrounding the use of hydrogen as a fuel.
Throughout the year, the DOE also organizes a variety of smaller webinars and seminars on themes such as energy security, energy efficiency, and green building. Furthermore, various DOE labs across the country hold their seminars and symposiums on energy-related issues regularly.
The DOE held its 14th National Clean Energy Summit in 2020, with keynote remarks from former US Secretary of State John Kerry, former Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, and celebrity environmental activist Bill Nye. Hundreds of industry leaders, policymakers, and experts attended the summit to debate the convergence of sustainable energy, economic opportunity, and climate action.
The DOE Office of Environmental Management (EM) will host the 2021 DOE Office of Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Technology Forum, a virtual event centered on the ETV program, 2021. The forum will take place from January 19-21, 2021, and will include approximately 30 hours of online sessions, keynote talks, and other activities.
Throughout the year, the DOE also hosts regular meetings of its Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Advisory Committee (REEEAC), where policymakers, industry stakeholders, and experts debate research, technical proceedings, and other issues concerning clean energy efforts and the sector.
The DOE’s dedication to sustainable energy projects has resulted in a comprehensive calendar of events that encourage public participation in energy concerns throughout the year. The DOE educates the public and engages business and government institutions in discourse on key energy-related topics through conferences, webinars, symposiums, and other events.
