US Energy Department RD&D Budget: Interactive Dataviz
The U.S. Department of Energy manages more than $9 billion in federal funding annually for research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) devoted to clean energy innovation. The funding flows through nine subcabinet offices and agencies—from the Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management to the Advanced Research Projects Agency–Energy (ARPA-E)—which in turn operate 24 subprograms focusing on discrete sectors and technologies. This data visualization provides the most recent details that are available for each of these funding streams and the programs they support.
