Fiscal Year 2019 EERE Budget Request

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is a catalyst for U.S. world leadership in transformative energy technologies and is a strong contributor to American energy independence, global competitiveness, and domestic job growth. EERE invests in critical early-stage research and development (R&D), and in partnership with industry and academia, leverages America's premier scientists and national laboratories to develop and facilitate the adoption of cutting-edge technology solutions for efficient buildings, advanced manufacturing, sustainable transportation, and renewable energy. EERE assures U.S. leadership in a comprehensive strategy for 21st century energy systems through the development of competitive, innovative technologies in renewable energy, manufacturing, transportation, and energy efficiency. EERE is an essential part of the DOE R&D portfolio that includes fossil, nuclear, and renewable energy resources. The EERE Fiscal Year 2019 budget request continues support for government’s role in early-stage R&D, solutions, and alternatives to address U.S. energy security, diversity, and resilience.

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) invests in research and development (R&D) as part of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) broad portfolio approach to addressing our Nation’s energy and environmental challenges. The FY 2019 Budget Request focuses DOE resources toward early-stage R&D and reflects an increased reliance on the private sector to fund later-stage research, development, and commercialization of energy technologies. It emphasizes energy technologies best positioned to support American energy independence and domestic job-growth in the near- to mid-term. The FY 2019 Budget Request maintains America’s leadership in transformative science and emerging energy technologies in sustainable transportation, renewable power, and energy efficiency.

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) conducts research, development, demonstration, and deployment activities in partnership with industry to advance a diverse portfolio of energy efficiency and clean power technologies and practices that will decrease our nation’s energy dependence and accelerate development of clean electricity supply options.

The FY 2017 budget request continues to support a critical and appropriate government role in research, solutions, and alternatives that will enable address of the nation’s most important energy, environmental, and economic challenges. And it takes a significant first step toward fulfilling the U.S. pledge to seek to double federal clean energy research and development investments government-wide over the next five years as part of Mission Innovation, an initiative launched by the U.S. and 19 other countries to accelerate widespread clean energy technology innovation and cost reduction.

The EERE's FY 2017 budget request of $2.9 billion includes $2.1 billion for the support of Mission Innovation, an increase of $702 million from the enacted FY 2016 budget. These investments will accelerate and drive next order innovation essential for emergent economic growth, clean, affordable, and reliable energy, and energy security.
