Independent Peer Reviews of NETL Technology Programs

Peer reviews consist of a formal evaluation of selected National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) projects by an independent panel of subject matter experts (SMEs). Peer reviews are conducted to ensure that the Office of Fossil Energy's (FE) research program, implemented by NETL, is compliant with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Strategic Plan and DOE guidance. Peer reviews reduce project risk (e.g., cost, schedule, technology development) and improve the overall quality of the technical aspects of research and development (R&D) activities, as well as overall project-related activities, such as utilization of resources, project and financial management, and commercialization. NETL uses the peer review findings to guide and redirect projects, as appropriate, underscoring NETL's commitment to funding and managing a portfolio of high-quality research.
