IEEE announced its support of the first installment of the White House Quadrennial Energy Review (QER) report developed under the leadership of the Office of Science and Technology Policy and the Domestic Policy Council. Development of the QER involved 22 federal agencies and was coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The first installment of the QER was released on April 21, 2015 and highlighted at an event in Philadelphia by Vice President Joe Biden and DOE Secretary Dr. Ernest Moniz on behalf of the Obama administration.

The IEEE and its membership were actively engaged during the development of the QER. In October 2014, the IEEE Joint Task Force on QER— spearheaded by the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), IEEE-USA and the IEEE volunteer community, under the leadership of co-chairs Veronika Rabl, chair of the IEEE-USA Energy Policy Committee and Damir Novosel, president-elect, IEEE PES—submitted a report to the DOE that addressed a specific set of priority issues.

An example of IEEE involvement and plans for on-going cooperation with DOE is underscored in the Chapter III “Recommendations in Brief” section on Modernizing the Electric Grid:

Improve grid communication through standards and interoperability.

In conjunction with the National Institute of Standards and Technology and other Federal agencies, DOE should work with industry, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, state officials, and other interested parties to identify additional efforts the Federal Government can take to better promote open standards that enhance connectivity and interoperability on the electric grid.

Via C-SPAN, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz testified at a hearing on the first installment of the QER. Watch the video now.
