Energy Resource Potential for DOE Lands


Project Scope:

An NRC-appointed committee will review a study conducted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Legacy Management of the potential development of energy resources for lands managed by DOE. This study may include assessments of oil, gas, coal, solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, uranium, and other resources, and is likely to include consideration of market barriers, practical constraints, economics, access to markets, and other aspects in estimating the potential for energy supply. Based on the review of these assessments and the committee's own expertise, the committee will: (1) review the methodology, assumptions and approaches made in the study; (2) identify gaps in the assessment, if any; (3) suggest improvements that could help to reconcile any inconsistencies in the estimates for the different resources; and (4) make recommendations for further analysis, if needed, to improve the estimates of energy resource and supply potential on DOE lands. The committee will prepare a report documenting its findings and recommendations.
