DOE Strategic Plan


Plan lays out the Department’s leadership role in transforming the energy economy through investments in research, development of new technologies and deployment of innovative approaches


DOE recently released its 2011 Department of Energy Strategic Plan, which outlines the broad, cross-cutting and collaborative goals, and will serve as a blueprint for DOE to help address the nation’s energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions.


The Department’s missions and programs are designed to bring the best minds and capabilities to bear on important problems. It draws on the diverse talents of our federal workforce, scientists and engineers from national laboratories, academia and the private sector in multidisciplinary teams, striving to find solutions to the most complex and pressing challenges.


The DOE Strategic Planis organized into four distinct categories:


·         Catalyzing the timely, material, and efficient transformation of the nation’s energy system and securing U.S. leadership in clean energy technologies


·         Maintaining a vibrant U.S. effort in science and engineering as a cornerstone of our economic prosperity with clear leadership in strategic areas


·         Enhancing nuclear security through defense, nonproliferation, and environmental efforts


·         Establishing an operational and adaptable framework that combines the best wisdom of all Department stakeholders to maximize mission success
