And they’re off! After more than a year since the announcement of available funding, the project teams selected for our Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE) each hosted our geothermal experts at their candidate sites this fall. We’re calling it our road trip through the geothermal frontier.
STEM Mentoring Cafés - sponsored in part by the Energy Department - engage middle schoolers with science and technology professionals at local science centers and museums nationwide to inspire them to learn about a broad spectrum of energy-related career fields.
Military veterans returning to the workforce possess unique skills, knowledge, and experience to help advance the federal government’s clean energy initiatives. Over the summer, the Energy Department’s Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) hosted nine military veteran student interns through the DOE Scholars Program, where each participant worked closely with leaders in advancing clean energy technologies, supporting greater national energy security.
Through the Energy Department’s partnership with the federal Joining Forces campaign, companies from the energy, manufacturing, transportation, and information technology sectors have committed to hiring approximately 90,000 veterans and military spouses through 2020. EERE works with partners to connect skilled veterans with careers in the clean energy sector.
This week, the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM) that provides for collaborative federal and state efforts in six keys areas where action is needed to expand the EV market.
How do you capture the idea of an electrified transportation system in a single graphic? That was the task facing the designers who participated in the Energy Department’s recent EV Everywhere Logo Challenge. Fortunately, 50 artists took on this difficult mission, submitting more than 80 entries. In the end, we picked only one winner: Brian Marquis.
Hydropower is one of our best renewable energy sources. By helping develop hydropower, EERE is Making A Difference in generating clean, sustainable and affordable electricity for millions of American homes and businesses.
