Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy: ARPA-E advances high-potential, high-impact energy technologies that are too early for private-sector investment. ARPA-E awardees are unique because they are developing entirely new ways to generate, store, and use energy. ARPA-E empowers America's energy researchers with funding, technical assistance, and market readiness.
Artificial Intelligence & Technology Office: Vision: Transform DOE into a world-leading AI enterprise by accelerating the research, development, delivery, and adoption of AI. Mission: AITO will accelerate the delivery of AI-enabled capabilities, scale the department-wide development and impact of AI, and synchronize AI activities to advance the agency’s core missions, expand partnerships, and support American AI Leadership.
Energy Information Administration: EIA collects, analyzes, and disseminates independent and impartial energy information to promote sound policymaking, efficient markets, and public understanding of energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment.
Loan Programs Office: LPO has billions in loans and loan guarantees available to help deploy large-scale energy infrastructure projects in the United States. Over the past decade, LPO has closed more than $30 billion of deals across a variety of energy sectors.
National Nuclear Security Administration: NNSA is a semi-autonomous agency within the U.S. Department of Energy responsible for enhancing national security through the military application of nuclear science. NNSA maintains and enhances the safety, security, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile without nuclear explosive testing; works to reduce the global danger from weapons of mass destruction; provides the U.S. Navy with safe and effective nuclear propulsion; and responds to nuclear and radiological emergencies in the U.S. and abroad.
Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security & Emergency Response: CESER addresses the emerging threats of tomorrow while protecting the reliable flow of energy to Americans today by improving energy infrastructure security and supporting DOE's national security mission. CESER’s focus is preparedness and response activities to natural and man-made threats, ensuring a stronger, more prosperous, and secure future for the Nation.
Cybersecurity: Cybersecurity for Critical Energy Infrastructure ♦ Energy Sector Cybersecurity Preparedness ♦ Cyber Incident Response & Recovery ♦ Cybersecurity Research, Development & Demonstration (RD&D) for Energy Delivery Systems
Office of Electricity: OE provides national leadership to ensure that the Nation’s energy delivery system is secure, resilient and reliable. OE works to develop new technologies to improve the infrastructure that brings electricity into our homes, offices, and factories, and the federal and state electricity policies and programs that shape electricity system planning and market operations. OE also works to bolster the resiliency of the electric grid and assists with restoration when major energy supply interruptions occur.
Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy: The mission of EERE is to create and sustain American leadership in the transition to a global clean energy economy. Its vision is a strong and prosperous America powered by clean, affordable, and secure energy.
Office of Environmental Management: EM mission is to address the nation’s Cold War environmental legacy resulting from five decades of nuclear weapons production and government-sponsored nuclear energy research. This legacy includes some of the world’s most dangerous radioactive sites with large amounts of radioactive wastes, spent nuclear fuel (SNF), excess plutonium and uranium, thousands of contaminated facilities, and contaminated soil and groundwater. Created in 1989, EM has the responsibility for completing the cleanup of this Cold War legacy and managing the remaining nuclear materials.
Program Scope: Chief of Nuclear Safety ♦ EM National Laboratory Network ♦ Excess Materials & Radioactive Waste Management ♦ Facility Deactivation & Decommissioning ♦ High-Level Radioactive Waste Interpretation ♦ Nuclear Materials ♦ Packaging & Transportation ♦ Regulatory Compliance ♦ Soil & Groundwater Remediation ♦ Tank Waste Processing & Tank Closure
Office of Fossil Energy: FE is responsible for Federal research, development, and demonstration efforts on advanced carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies, as well as the development of technological solutions for the prudent and sustainable development of our unconventional oil and gas domestic resources. It also manages the nation's Strategic Petroleum Reserve and Northeast Home Heating Oil Reserve, both key emergency response tools available to the President to protect Americans from energy supply disruptions.
Office of Indian Energy Policy & Programs: Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs is authorized to fund and implement a variety of programmatic activities that assist American Indian Tribes and Alaska Native villages with energy development, capacity building, energy cost reduction, and electrification of Indian lands and homes.
Office of Legacy Management: LM is responsible for ensuring that DOE's post-closure responsibilities are met and for providing DOE programs for long-term surveillance and maintenance, records management, work force restructuring and benefits continuity, property management, land use planning, and community assistance.
Office of Nuclear Energy: NE's primary mission is to advance nuclear power as a resource capable of making major contributions in meeting our Nation’s energy supply, environmental, and energy security needs. NE seeks to resolve technical, cost, safety, security and regulatory issues through research, development and demonstration. By focusing on the development of advanced nuclear technologies, NE supports the Administration’s goals of providing domestic sources of secure energy, reducing greenhouse gases, and enhancing national security.
Initiatives: Nuclear Reactor Technologies ♦ Consent-Based Siting ♦ Fuel Cycle Technologies ♦ International Nuclear Energy Policy & Cooperation ♦ Nuclear Facility Operations ♦ Advanced Modeling & Simulation ♦ Nuclear Energy University Program ♦ Nuclear Energy Enabling Technologies ♦ Space & Defense Power Systems ♦ Spent Fuel & Waste Disposition ♦ Tribal Working Group ♦ Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) ♦ Funding Opportunities ♦ NICE Future
Office of Science: The Office of Science is the lead federal agency supporting fundamental scientific research for energy and the Nation’s largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences. The Office of Science portfolio has two principal thrusts: direct support of scientific research and direct support of the development, construction, and operation of unique, open-access scientific user facilities.
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission: FERC is an independent agency that regulates the interstate transmission of natural gas, oil, and electricity. FERC also regulates natural gas and hydropower projects.
International Energy Agency: Autonomous organization which works to ensure reliable, affordable and clean energy for its 29 member countries and beyond. Four main areas of focus are: energy security, economic development, environmental awareness, and engagement worldwide.
Energy Star: EPA voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency.
OpenEI: Energy data - specifically analyses on renewable energy and energy efficiency. Users can view, edit, and add data – and download data for free. In addition to the Wiki, OpenEI provides a platform for sharing datasets. You can download data or upload your own, as well as rate and provide comments on the usefulness of the datasets.
