Intergovernmental Grants; and Wind and Hydropower Technologies (DOE, 2002). The Deputy Assistant Secretary for Technology Development oversees all EERE program managers and regional offices, while the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Business Administration oversees all program support issues, planning, analysis, budget formulation, and the Golden, Colorado, field office (NHA, 2002).

Restructuring of the Industrial Technologies Program

The EERE reorganization resulted in a reorganization of the Industrial Technologies Program along the lines of the new EERE management and business system. The ITP mission, goals, and strategies were aligned with those of the EERE Strategic Plan, the DOE Strategic Plan, and the National Energy Policy (see Figure 1–3). In addition, several ITP programs and projects were moved from the ITP to the EERE Biomass Program, including the agricultural industry programs, the black liquor gasification project, and the new, forest-based materials effort. The ITP personnel at DOE headquarters in Washington, D.C., are now responsible for developing, managing, and evaluating technology portfolios to best achieve ITP goals and strategies. The Golden Field Office in Colorado is responsible for initiating, managing, and monitoring all ITP projects. The EERE regional offices in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Philadelphia, and Seattle are responsible for delivering technologies to ITP industrial partners.
