Prospective Evaluation of Applied Energy Research and Development at DOE
(Phase Two)

Requested by Congress in P.L. 108-7, this is the second in a series of reports continuing work on a mandate from P.L. 106-113, which asked the National Academies to use quantitative indicators to evaluate the effectiveness of applied energy R&D.

These follow-up reports sought to adapt the retrospective methodology (developed in the report requested in P.L. 106-113) to the assessment of the future payoff of continuing programs (Prospective Evaluation of Applied Energy Research and Development at DOE (Phase One): A First Look Forward) and to continue the investigation of R&D outcome indicators, applying the benefits evaluation methodology to six DoE R&D activities (Phase Two). This latter report further defines indicators for environmental and security benefits and refines the evaluation process based on the experience with the case studies.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released December 28, 2006 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
