BES Reports

In 2001, the Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee (BESAC) conducted a far reaching study to assess the scope of fundamental scientific research that must be considered to address the DOE missions in energy efficiency, renewable energy resources, improved use of fossil fuels, safe and publicly acceptable nuclear energy, future energy sources, and reduced environmental impacts of energy production and use. The scientific community responded to this BESAC study with enthusiasm through participation in a week-long workshop, whose results were published in early 2003 in the report, Basic Research Needs to Assure a Secure Energy Future. That report inspired a series of follow-on workshops, which together attracted more than 2,000 participants from universities, industry, and DOE laboratories. The Energy Frontier Research Centers directly address the use-inspired basic research needs articulated in the resulting Workshop Reports.
