Panel to Examine Federal Energy R&D Programs

April 04, 1997

A newly formed panel will work with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the U.S. Department of Energy to provide recommendations on how to ensure the U.S. energy R&D program addresses the economic, environmental and national security needs of the nation for the next century.

The panel will review current and projected U.S. energy R&D programs. The panel will also make recommendations on federal support for energy research and development, incentives for private sector investments in energy research and development, and U.S. commitments to international cooperation in energy research and development.

The panel was created under the auspices of the President's Committee of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST). It is chaired by John Holdren, the Director of the Program on Science, Technology, and Public Policy at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. The panel is expected to report its findings by October, 1997.
