Programs funded within the Weapons Activities appropriation support the Nation's current and future defense posture, and its attendant nationwide infrastructure of science, technology and engineering capabilities. Weapons Activities provides for the maintenance and refurbishment of nuclear weapons to continue sustained confidence in their safety, reliability, and performance; continued investment in scientific, engineering, and manufacturing capabilities to enable certification of the enduring nuclear weapons stockpile; and manufacture of nuclear weapon components. Weapons Activities also provides for continued maintenance and investment in the NNSA nuclear complex to be more responsive and cost effective. The major elements of the program include the following:

Directed Stockpile Work._Encompasses all activities that directly support the nuclear weapons stockpile. These activities include: maintenance and surveillance; planned refurbishment; reliability assessment; weapon dismantlement and disposal; and research, development, and certification technology efforts to meet stockpile requirements.

Campaigns._Focuses on scientific, technical, and engineering efforts to develop and maintain critical capabilities, tools, and processes needed to support science based stockpile stewardship, weapons refurbishments, and continued certification of the stockpile over the long-term in the absence of underground nuclear testing.

Readiness in Technical Base and Facilities._Provides the underlying physical infrastructure and operational readiness for the nuclear security enterprise. RTBF ensures essential weapon activity capabilities are available and the facilities are operational, safe, secure, and compliant with regulatory requriements. RTBF provides these services through both a defined level of readiness as well as capability and facility investments.

Secure Transportation Asset._Provides for the safe, secure movement of nuclear weapons, special nuclear material, and weapon components to meet projected DOE, Department of Defense (DOD), and other customer requirements. The Program Direction in this account provides for the secure transportation workforce, including the Federal agents.

Nuclear Counterterrorism Incident Response (NCTIR)._Strategically manages people with specialized expertise and equipment to provide a technically trained response to nuclear or radiological incidents worldwide, mitigates nuclear or radiological threats through research and development and provides interagency training and support to the Nation from the threat of nuclear terrorism.

Counterterrorism and Counterproliferation (CTCP)._Advances the U.S. Government counterrorism and counterproliferation goals through innovative science, technology, and policy-driven solutions. The CTCP programs consolidate the Nuclear Counterterrorism subprogram for the NCTIR program and the Nations Security Applications program into an integrated program of technical work that materially contributes to the Department of Energy's goal of enhancing nuclear security through preventing nuclear terrorism.

Site Stewardship._Ensures the overall health and viability of the NNSA, DOE, and other national missions, with a focus on maintaining environmental compliance, dispositioning of nuclear materials, and developing the needed skills and talent for NNSA's enduring technical workforce at the labs and production plants.

Defense Nuclear Security._Provides protection for NNSA personnel, facilities, and nuclear weapons from a full spectrum of threats, most notably terrorism. Provides for all safeguards and security requirements including protective forces and systems at all NNSA sites including protective forces and systems.

NNSA Chief Information Officer Activities._Provides for research and development of information technology and cyber security solutions such as identity, credential, and access management to help meet energy security, proliferation resistance, and climate goals.
NNSA's request reflects the partnership between NNSA and DOD to maintain and modernize the nuclear deterrent. DOD's NNSA Program Support account has the amounts for Weapons Activities that are shown in the table below, underscoring the close link between these activities and DOD nuclear weapons-related requirements and missions. OMB will ensure that future budget year allocations to NNSA occur in the required amounts.

Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI)._The GTRI mission is to reduce and protect vulnerable nuclear and radiological materials located at civilian sites worldwide. The GTRI program directly supports the international effort, initiated by President Obama's Prague Agenda, to secure all vulnerable nuclear material around the world. GTRI supports DOE's Strategic Plan goal to reduce nuclear dangers by preventing terrorists from acquiring nuclear and radiological materials that could be used in WMD or acts of terrorism by: 1) converting or verifying the permanent shutdown of research reactors and isotope production facilities from the use of highly enriched uranium to low enriched uranium, 2) removing and disposing of excess nuclear and radiological materials, and 3) protecting highly-priority nuclear and radiological materials from theft. These three key aspects of GTRI-convert, remove, and protect-together provide a comprehensive approach to achieving its mission and denying terrorists access to nuclear and radiological materials.

Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Research and Development (DNN R&D)._This program drives the innovation of unilateral and multi-lateral technical capabilities to detect, identify, and characterize: 1) foreign nuclear weapons programs, 2) illicit diversion of special nuclear materials, and 3) nuclear detonations. To meet national and departmental nuclear security requirements, DNN R&D leverages the unique facilities and scientific skills of the Department of Energy, academia, and industry for the performance of research, conduct of technology demonstrations, and development of prototypes for integration into operational systems.

Nonproliferation and International Security (NIS)._The NIS mission is to prevent and counter the proliferation of WMD, including materials, technologies, and expertise, by states and non-state actors. The program provides policy and technical support for nonproliferation and associated treaties and agreements, domestic and international legal and regulatory controls, and diplomatic and counter-proliferation initiatives, and it cooperates with international organizations and foreign partners on export controls, safeguards, and security. The program makes vital contributions to strengthen international security and the nuclear nonproliferation regime in four main areas: (1) Nuclear Safeguards and Security, (2) Nuclear Controls, (3) Nuclear Verification, and (4) Nonproliferation Policy. Working in concert, these programs: safeguard and secure materials and facilities, detect and prevent illicit traffficking of materials, technology and expertise; develop policy and technical solutions for transparent nuclear reductions and treaty monitoring and compliance; and develop crosscutting policy and tecnical solutions and programs and strategies to strengthen international security and the nuclear nonproliferation regime.

International Materials Protection and Cooperation (IMPC)._ The IMPC program supports one of the President's top priorities to lead a global effort to secure all nuclear weapons materials at vulnerable sites -the most effective way to prevent terrorists from acquiring a nuclear bomb. The IMPC program prevents nuclear terrorism by working in Russia and other regions of concern to: 1) secure vulnerable nuclear weapons and weapons materials, and 2) install and sustain mobile and fixed detection equipment at international crossing points and ports to prevent and detect the illicit transfer of nuclear material. The program continues to improve the security of nuclear material and nuclear warheads in Russia and other countries of proliferation concern by installing Material, Protection, Control and accounting (MPC&A) upgrades and providing sustainability support to sites with previously installed MPC&A upgrades. Reducing the potential for diversion of nuclear materials and deterring, detecting, and interdicting material outside of regulatory control is a critical national security priority for the United States.

Fissile Materials Disposition (FMD)._The program goal is to dispose of surplus Russian and U.S. weapon-grade plutonium and and highly enriched uranium. To dispose of U.S. plutonium, the program has been building the Mixed Oxide (MOX) Fuel Fabrication Facility, which would enable the Department of Energy to dispose of plutonium by fabricating it into MOX fuel and irradiating it in commercial nuclear reactors. A review of this approach has determined that the MOX fuel approach is significantly more expensive than planned and it is not viable within the FY 2015 funding levels. The Department of Energy is developing alternative approaches to plutonium disposition and will engage with stakeholders to determine a viable alternative. As a result, the MOX project will be placed in cold standby while an alternative approached is determined. The Administration remains firmly committed to the overarching goals of the plutonium disposition program to: 1) dispose of excess U.S. plutonium; and 2) achieve Russian disposition of equal quantities of plutonium. The Administration recognizes the importance of the U.S.-Russia Plutonium Management and Disposition Agreement (PMDA), whereby each side committed to dispose of at least 34 metric tons of weapon-grade plutonium.

The Defense Environmental Cleanup program is responsible for protecting human health and the environment by identifying and reducing risks, as well as managing waste and facilities, at sites where the Department carried out defense-related nuclear research and production activities. Those activities resulted in radioactive, hazardous, and mixed -waste contamination requiring remediation, stabilization, decontamination and decommissioning, or some other type of cleanup action. The budget displays the cleanup program by site.

Closure Sites._Funds post-closure administration costs after the physical completion of cleanup, including costs for contract closeout and litigation support.

Hanford Site._Funds cleanup and environmental restoration to protect the Columbia River and surrounding communities. The Hanford site cleanup is managed by two Environmental Management (EM) site offices: the Richland Operations Office and the Office of River Protection.
The Richland Office is responsible for cleanup activities on most of the geographic area making up the Hanford site. The primary cleanup focus is decontamination and decommissioning legacy facilities and enhancing contaminated groundwater characterization and treatment.
The Office of River Protection is responsible for the safe storage, retrieval, treatment, immobilization, and disposal of 56 million gallons of radioactive waste stored in 177 underground tanks. It is also responsible for related operation, maintenance, engineering, and construction activities, including those connected to the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant being built to solidify the liquid tank waste in a glass form that can be safely stored.

Idaho._Funds retrieval, treatment, and disposition of nuclear and hazardous wastes .

NNSA Sites._Funds the safe and efficient cleanup of the environmental legacy past operations at National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) sites including Los Alamos National Laboratory, Nevada National Security Site, Sandia National Laboratories, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and the Separations Process Research Unit. The cleanup strategy follows a risk-informed approach that focuses first on those soil and groundwater contaminant plumes and sources that are the greatest contributors to risk. The overall goal is first to ensure that risks to the public and workers are controlled, then to clean up soil and groundwater using a risk-informed methodology. NNSA is responsible for long-term stewardship of its sites after physical cleanup is completed.

Oak Ridge._Funds defense-related cleanup of the three facilities that make up the Oak Ridge Reservation: the East Tennessee Technology Park, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the Y-12 Plant. The overall cleanup strategy is based on surface water considerations, encompassing five distinct watersheds that feed the adjacent Clinch River.

Savannah River Site._Funds the safe stabilization, treatment, and disposition of legacy nuclear materials, spent nuclear fuel, and waste at the Savannah River site. Activities include operating the Defense Waste Processing Facility, which is solidifying waste contained in underground tanks, and the Actinide Removal Process and Modular Caustic Side Solvent Extraction units being used to separate various tank waste components for treatment. In addition, it includes construction of the Salt Waste Processing Facility.

Waste Isolation Pilot Plant._Funds the world's first permitted deep geologic repository for the permanent disposal of radioactive waste, and the Nation's only disposal site for defense-generated transuranic waste. The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, managed by the Carlsbad Field Office, is an operating facility, supporting the cleanup of transuranic waste from waste generator and storage sites across the cleanup program. The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant is crucial to the Department of Energy (DOE) completing its cleanup and closure mission.

Program Direction._Funds the Federal workforce responsible for the overall direction and administrative support of the EM program, including both Headquarters and field personnel.

Program Support._Funds management and direction for various crosscutting EM and DOE initiatives, intergovernmental activities, and analyses and integration activities across DOE in a consistent, responsible, and efficient manner.

Safeguards and Security._Funds activities to protect against unauthorized access, theft, diversion, loss of custody or destruction of DOE assets, and hostile acts that could cause adverse impacts to fundamental national security or the health and safety of DOE and contractor employees, the public or the environment.

Technology Development and Deployment._Funds projects managed through Headquarters to address the immediate, near- and long-term technology needs identified by the EM sites, enabling them to accelerate their cleanup schedules, treat orphaned wastes, improve worker safety, and provide technical foundations for the sites' cleanup decisions. These projects focus on maturing and deploying the technologies necessary to accelerate tank waste processing, treatment, and waste loading.

Advanced Scientific Computing Research.—The Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program supports advanced computational research, applied mathematics, computer science, and networking. The program also supports the development, maintenance, and operation of large high performance computing and network facilities, including the Leadership Computing Facilities at Oak Ridge and Argonne National Laboratories, the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Facility at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the Energy Sciences Network. The request includes research, in partnership with other science programs, on the application of high performance computer simulation and modeling to science problems. Research will continue to focus on coordinated efforts to address the challenges for emerging computing hardware such as energy management and fault tolerance. Research will also continue to address the challenges of data-intensive science including the massive quantities of data generated by Office of Science facilities and collaborations. ASCR efforts will consider and integrate the full spectrum of these challenges from hardware to applications.

Basic Energy Sciences.—The Basic Energy Sciences (BES) program supports fundamental research in materials science, chemistry, geosciences, and biosciences to understand, predict, and ultimately control matter and energy at the electronic, atomic, and molecular levels. BES core research awards support individual scientists and small groups to pursue discovery-driven research with broad energy relevance. BES also supports two innovative approaches to integrated research: Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRCs) and Energy Innovation Hubs. The EFRCs support multi-year, multi-investigator scientific collaborations focused on overcoming hurdles in basic science that hinder advances in energy technologies. The two BES-managed Energy Innovation Hubs—the Fuels from Sunlight Hub and the Batteries and Energy Storage Hub—consist of larger, highly integrated teams working to solve priority science and technology challenges. A new investment in computational materials science is also requested in FY 2015 to develop community software codes for the design of functional materials.

The BES program operates large national user research facilities: a complementary set of light sources, neutron scattering centers, and research centers for nanoscale science with electron beam characterization capabilities. These facilities probe materials in space, time, and energy to investigate the inner workings of matter and answer some of the most challenging grand science questions. The request includes support to use these state-of-the-art national user facilities at optimal levels. Research areas that will benefit from these facilities include materials science, chemistry, structural biology, and energy technology development. The request supports construction of the Linac Coherent Light Source-II (LCLS-II) and increased funding for early operations of the National Synchrotron Light Source-II (NSLS-II), while NSLS ceases operations. The request also supports two major item of equipment projects: the Advanced Photon Source Upgrade and the NSLS-II Experimental Tools. The BES operations of the Lujan Neutron Scattering Center will cease and funding is requested for safe storage of facility components.

Biological and Environmental Research.—The Biological and Environmental Research (BER) science portfolio examines complex biological, climatic, and environmental systems across spatial scales ranging from sub-cellular to global, individual molecules to entire ecosystems, and temporal scales ranging from nanoseconds to millennia. BER-supported research and scientific facilities address the science underpinning diverse and critical global challenges, from the sustainable and affordable production of renewable biofuels in an environmentally conscientious manner to the simulation and prediction of climate change and greenhouse gas emissions relevant to energy production. Multidisciplinary systems approaches are employed to study and predict dynamic biological interactions from the subcellular molecular level to large scale processes performed by complex plant and microbial communities. The program plays a vital role in supporting research examining atmospheric processes; climate change; and the impacts of climate change, including warmer temperatures, changes in precipitation, increased levels of greenhouse gases, changing distributions of weather extremes on different ecosystems. The program also seeks understanding of the critical role that biogeochemical processes play in controlling the cycling and mobility of materials in the Earth's subsurface and across key surface-subsurface interfaces in the environment.

The budget continues support for key core research areas and scientific user facilities in bioenergy, climate, and environmental research. The three DOE Bioenergy Research Centers continue to address the fundamental science underpinning the development of cost-effective cellulosic biofuels. Genomic sciences investments target the development of synthetic biology tools and technologies and integrative computation-driven analysis of experimental datasets to accelerate the interpretation of complex genomes that are sequenced and analyzed at the DOE Joint Genome Institute. Mesoscale research targets multiscale bioimaging of subcellular organization and communication. Observational research on clouds and aerosols at the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Climate Research Facility (ARM) will improve understanding of the priority climatic sensitive regions of the Arctic and tropics, and modeling efforts will shift their emphasis from global scale dynamics to higher resolution scale interactions for these priority regions. New investment in Climate Model Development and Validation will enable restructuring the model architecture, new software engineering and computational upgrades, and incorporating scale-aware physics in all model components. The new Climate and Environmental Data, Analysis, and Visualization activity will combine Earth system models with energy and infrastructure models and field observations to provide enhanced tools for analysis and visualization. The Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory enables experimental and computational research on physical, chemical, and biological processes to resolve molecular-scale challenges in areas such as atmospheric aerosols and trace gases, biofuel feedstocks, biogeochemistry subsurface science and energy materials.

Fusion Energy Sciences.—The Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) program aims to expand the fundamental understanding of matter at very high temperatures and densities and to build the scientific foundation needed to develop a fusion energy source. Understanding the scientific character of the burning plasma state, as well as establishing the science for maintaining this state for long durations, is a major objective of FES research. Another major research objective is increasing the fundamental understanding of basic plasma science for a broad range of science-based applications. In addition to funding U.S. contributions to ITER, an international project that aims to demonstrate the scientific and technical feasibility of fusion energy, the FES request continues support for three domestic fusion research facilities (National Spherical Torus Experiment, DIII-D, and Alcator C-Mod); international partnerships that leverage U.S. expertise, high-performance computational simulations based on experimentally validated theoretical models; the development of advanced fusion-relevant materials and technology innovations; and the invention of new measurement techniques. FES will also continue to support the pursuit of discovery plasma science, including research in plasma astrophysics and low-temperature plasmas, intermediate-scale magnetic confinement experimental platforms, and high energy density laboratory plasmas.

High Energy Physics.—The High Energy Physics (HEP) program aims to understand how our universe works at its most fundamental level by discovering the most elementary constituents of matter and energy, probing the interactions among them, and exploring the basic nature of space and time itself. The program encompasses both experimental and theoretical particle physics research at the Energy, Intensity, and Cosmic Frontiers, as well as related advanced accelerator and detector technology research and development (R&D). The primary mode of experimental research involves the study of collisions of beams of intense and/or energetic particles using large particle accelerators or colliding beam facilities.

The HEP request supports Intensity Frontier research, primarily at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, including a diverse portfolio of experiments studying the fundamental properties of neutrinos, quarks and leptons, and searching for new forces and phenomena. The HEP request also supports the Energy Frontier research program at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), including support for software and computing, pre-operations, and maintenance of the U.S.-built systems that are part of the LHC detectors and accelerator commissioning and accelerator physics studies using the LHC, and the Cosmic Frontier program focused on discovering the nature of dark matter and dark energy using sensitive, state-of-the-art detectors underground, in space, and mounted on telescopes.

In addition to contributing to breakthrough scientific discoveries, HEP research also makes major contributions to accelerator technology development and provides the expertise necessary for the expansion of such technology into medicine, industry, and homeland security, as well as materials, biology, and chemistry research using light sources. The request includes continued support for the Accelerator R&D Stewardship program initiated in FY 2014 to foster development of novel accelerator technology with broad applications.

Nuclear Physics.—The Nuclear Physics (NP) program addresses three broad yet tightly interrelated scientific thrusts: strong interactions among quarks and gluons (quantum chromodynamics) and how they assemble into the various forms of matter; the structure of atomic nuclei at their limits of existence and nuclear astrophysics to address the origin of the elements and the evolution of the cosmos; and measurements of fundamental symmetries of neutrons and nuclei to improve understanding of fundamental interactions and the properties of neutrinos and nuclei.

NP develops the scientific knowledge, technologies, and trained workforce needed to underpin NP and DOE's mission areas. The advancement of knowledge of nuclear matter and its properties is intertwined with nuclear power, nuclear medicine, national security, environmental and geological sciences, and isotope production.

The request provides continued support of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory to characterize new states of matter and phenomena that occur in hot, dense nuclear matter; the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) at Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility to understand the substructure of the nucleon; and the Argonne Tandem Linear Accelerator System at Argonne National Laboratory for the study of nuclear structure and nuclear astrophysics. Construction continues on the 12 GeV CEBAF Upgrade project to double the electron beam energy at CEBAF, which will open the opportunity for new discoveries and an understanding of quark confinement; and on the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams at Michigan State University, which will provide intense beams of rare isotopes for a wide variety of studies in nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics and fundamental symmetries. The Isotope Development and Production for Research and Applications program will continue to develop and produce commercial and research radioisotopes that are in short supply, for provision to medical institutions, universities, research organizations, and industry for a wide array of uses and applications.

Science Laboratories Infrastructure.—The mission of Science Laboratories Infrastructure (SLI) program is to support scientific and technological innovation at Office of Science (SC) laboratories by funding and sustaining mission-ready infrastructure and fostering safe and environmentally responsible operations. Revitalizing facilities and providing modern laboratory infrastructure is critical to ensuring the continued mission readiness of SC laboratories. The program provides the modern laboratory infrastructure necessary to support world leadership by the SC national laboratories in the area of basic scientific research now and in the future.

Safeguards and Security.—The mission of Safeguards and Security (S&S) program is to support the Department's research at SC laboratories by ensuring appropriate levels of protection against unauthorized access, theft, or destruction of Department assets, and hostile acts that may have adverse impacts on fundamental science, national security, the health and safety of DOE and contractor employees, the public, and the environment.

Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists.—The Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) program supports undergraduate internships, graduate thesis research, and visiting faculty programs at the DOE laboratories; the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship for K-12 STEM teachers, which is administered by WDTS for DOE and for other federal agencies; and nationwide, middle- and high-school science competitions that annually culminate in the National Science Bowl in Washington, D.C. These investments help develop the next generation of scientists and engineers to support the DOE mission, administer its programs, and conduct its research. WDTS activities leverage the assets of DOE's 17 laboratories, which employ more than 30,000 workers with STEM backgrounds. The DOE laboratory system provides access to leading scientists; world-class scientific user facilities and instrumentation; and large-scale, multidisciplinary research programs unavailable in universities or industry.

Program Direction.—This program provides a highly skilled Federal workforce to develop and sustain world-class science programs that deliver the scientific discoveries and technological innovations needed to solve our nation's energy and environmental challenges and enable the U.S. to maintain its global competitiveness. The SC workforce is responsible for overseeing taxpayer dollars for science program development; program and project execution and management; managing the administrative, business, and technical aspects of research grants and contracts; overseeing 10 of the 17 DOE national laboratories; and providing public access to DOE's R&D results.

The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) within the Department of Energy was established by the America COMPETES Act of 2007 (Pub. L. No. 110–69), as amended. The mission of ARPA-E is to overcome the long-term and high-risk technological barriers to the development of new energy technologies that increase energy efficiency and reduce emissions, including greenhouse gases.

ARPA-E will facilitate initiatives to enhance the energy and economic security of the United States through the development of new energy technologies and ensure that the United States maintains a technological lead in developing and deploying advanced energy technologies. ARPA-E will identify and promote revolutionary advances in energy-related applied sciences, translating scientific discoveries and cutting-edge inventions into technological innovations. It will also accelerate transformational technological advances in areas where industry by itself is not likely to invest due to technical and financial uncertainty. The role of ARPA-E is not to duplicate DOE's basic research and applied programs but to focus on novel early-stage energy research and development with technology applications.

Nuclear Energy

(Legislative proposal, subject to PAYGO)

In January 2013 the Administration released its Strategy for the Management and Disposal of Used Nuclear Fuel and High Level Radioactive Waste. This Strategy lays out a broad outline for a stable, integrated system capable of transporting, storing, and disposing of high-level nuclear waste from civilian nuclear power generation, defense, national security and other activities. The Administration is working with Congress to build and implement this new program and believes that providing adequate and timely funding is critical to success.

Currently approximately 70,000 metric tons heavy metal (MTHM) of used nuclear fuel are stored at 72 commercial power plants around the country with almost 2,000 MTHM added to that amount every year. As a result of litigation by contract holders, the government was found in partial breach of contract, and is now liable for damages to some utilities to cover the costs of that on-site, at-reactor storage. The FY 2015 Budget continues to reflect a more complete estimate of those liability payments in the baseline. Please see additional discussion of the cost of the government's liability in the Budget Process chapter in the Analytical Perspectives volume.

To support the nuclear waste management program over the long term, reform of the current funding arrangement is necessary and the Administration believes the funding system should consist of the following elements: ongoing discretionary appropriations, access to annual fee collections provided in legislation either through their reclassification from mandatory to discretionary or as a direct mandatory appropriation, and eventual access to the balance or "corpus" of the Nuclear Waste Fund. The FY 2015 Budget includes a proposal to implement such reform. Discretionary appropriations are included for this new program for the duration of the effort. These funds would be used to fund expenses that are regular and recurring, such as program management costs, including administrative expenses, salaries and benefits, studies, and regulatory interactions. Mandatory appropriations in addition to the discretionary funding are proposed to be provided annually beginning in 2018 to fund the balance of the annual program costs.

The program envisioned in the FY 2015 Budget is a very long term, flexible, multi-faceted approach to dispose of the nation's commercial and defense waste. The estimated programmatic cost of this effort over its first 10 years is approximately $5.7 billion. As part of this program, the Budget assumes the construction and operation of a pilot interim waste storage facility within the next 10 years as well as notable progress on both full-scale interim storage and long-term permanent geologic disposal. The deployment of pilot interim storage within the next 10 years allows the government to begin picking up waste, thus enabling the collection of one-time fees owed by certain generators that will offset some of this spending. Over the 10-year budget window, the projected net mandatory cost would be in the range of $1.3 billion.

The sooner that legislation enables progress on implementing a nuclear waste management program, the lower the ultimate cost will be to the taxpayers. This proposal is intended to limit, and then end, liability costs by making it possible for the government to begin performing on its contractual obligations.

The Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) supports clean energy research, development, demonstration, and deployment activities to advance the state-of-the-art in efficiency and renewable energy technologies and to transition them from early-stage research to the private sector. EERE programs accelerate the development and commercialization of new generations of energy technologies for buildings, factories, and vehicles that are clean, reliable, efficient, and affordable and that help the country meet its economic, environmental, and energy security goals. These technologies can provide the basis for increased domestic manufacturing and economic growth; protect the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air and water quality; reduce petroleum use; increase diversity and choice in energy sources and services; and decrease energy use and costs for consumers. As EERE technologies become more cost competitive, grid integration issues associated with higher penetration on the power grid of EERE technologies such as variable renewable electricity generation, electric vehicle charging, building efficiency, and demand response emerge as high priority barriers to address.

EERE programs include:

Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies._This program aims to reduce petroleum use, greenhouse gas emissions, and criteria air pollutants, and to contribute to a more diverse and efficient domestically-based energy infrastructure by supporting the development of affordable, high efficiency and low emissions hydrogen and fuel cell technologies for widespread commercialization. The program supports applied research, development, and demonstration of transformative advances in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, as well as efforts to overcome economic and institutional barriers to their commercial deployment.

Bioenergy Technologies._This program funds RD&D projects to advance biofuels technologies and to validate and assist in the commercialization of integrated biorefinery technologies that will help transform the nation's transportation sector. The program's activities include the development of biomass conversion technologies to produce a variety of biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower. The program also works to evaluate environmentally sustainable feedstocks and to develop economically viable feedstock logistics systems to sustainably supply the biofuels industry. With the completion of the program's technology development for cost-competitive cellulosic ethanol, the program is now partnering with the private sector to demonstrate economic viability at larger scales. It is also developing follow-on technology for more infrastructure-compatible biofuels, such as bio-based gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. This work is coordinated closely with the Departments of Agriculture and Defense.

Solar Energy._This program's main objectives under the SunShot Initiative are to make solar energy cost-competitive with other sources of electricity, across the nation and without subsidies, by 2020—a goal of approximately 5–6 cents per kWh for installed systems; and to create reliable domestic solar energy options manufactured in the United States that enhance our economy, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, and support a resilient electric grid. To achieve these objectives, the program supports solar energy research, development, and demonstration at universities and the national laboratories and in collaboration with industry and industry-led consortia. The Photovoltaic (PV) R&D subprogram focuses on lowering the cost of PV through increased conversion efficiency and reduction in cell and module costs. The Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) subprogram supports the development of thermal storage, heat transfer fluids, and component and systems research and optimization to enable CSP to provide baseload power on demand. Additionally, the Systems Integration and Balance of Systems Soft Cost Reduction subprograms support cost goals for the deployment of solar technologies by addressing grid integration issues, the balance-of-system and non-hardware costs of installation, and other market barriers. The Innovations in Manufacturing Competitiveness subprogram focuses on manufacturing technology improvements and on increasing the competitiveness of the U.S. solar energy manufacturing industry and supply chain.

Wind Energy._This program develops technology in partnership with industry to improve the reliability and affordability of land-based and offshore wind energy systems, with an increased focus on next generation technologies that could leapfrog global competition (e.g., floating platform designs, etc.), enable America's sizable offshore wind resources to be captured at a competitive price, and create domestic manufacturing. The program also supports advanced turbine component research and design, wind resource assessments and modeling, advanced turbine and system modeling and optimization of entire wind plants, and improved approaches to systems interconnection and integration with the electric transmission grid. These efforts also help reduce barriers to technology acceptance and enable increased market penetration of this variable resource.

Geothermal Technologies._This program conducts research, development and demonstration in partnership with industry, academia, and the national laboratories to improve the discovery of new geothermal resources and to develop innovative methods for accessing and using those resources for cost-effective baseload renewable electricity generation. The program's geothermal work will concentrate on improved exploration technologies and on developing new technologies for enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) that offer the potential for tapping into enormous geothermal resources across America.

The Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) Program has the national security mission to reduce the vulnerability of the United States to energy supply disruptions by maintaining a crude oil stockpile capable of rapid deployment at the direction of the President. This program protects the United States against foreign and domestic disruptions in its critical petroleum supplies that would result from international incidents, hurricanes or terrorism, and fulfills the United States obligations under the International Energy Program (the charter of the International Energy Agency). The United States gains access to worldwide emergency assistance through its International Energy Agency alliance in the event of a petroleum supply disruption. This account provides for the management, operations, maintenance and security of the SPR storage facilities, drawdown testing and readiness of the Reserve, and program administration. The FY 2015 budget continues to provide insurance against oil supply disruptions that could harm the U.S. economy by pursuing a SPR program that is environmentally responsible and fully responsive to the needs of the Nation and the public. The FY 2015 budget funds the management, operations, maintenance, and security of the Government's four SPR storage sites; continued degasification operations at the West Hackberry site for treating the oil to safe vapor pressure levels to restore the availability of the entire crude oil inventory for emergency use; and continues a cavern casing inspection and remediation program to comply with state inspection regulations and address wellbore and casing component failures. The overall maximum SPR drawdown rate remains at 4.25 million barrels per day versus the designed rate of 4.4 million barrels per day.

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) is the statistical and analytical agency within the U.S. Department of Energy. EIA collects, analyzes, and disseminates independent and impartial energy information to promote sound policymaking, efficient markets, and public understanding of energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment. EIA is the Nation's premier source of energy information and, by law, its data, analyses, and forecasts are independent of approval by any other officer or employee of the United States Government. EIA conducts a data collection program with the goal of covering the full spectrum of energy sources, end uses, and energy flows; generates short- and long-term domestic and international energy projections; and performs informative energy analyses. As EIA's data products, analyses, and reports are primarily disseminated through its website, the agency endeavors to provide continuous improvement for its customers by enabling access to desired information in a format and structure usable with minimal additional effort. Priority areas for FY 2015 include developing an interface to enable groups with common interests to crowd-source, or pool information to determine the actual effectiveness of specific building efficiency technologies, practices, and characteristics in reducing energy use while maintaining energy services; improving the capability to track and report on rapidly-changing domestic market dynamics through expanded collection of domestic oil and gas production and collaboration with member states of the Ground Water Protection Council to make EIA a repository for well-level data from states; explaining domestic energy markets within the broader context of the world energy system, including the global markets for liquefied natural gas, crude oil, and refined products; and continuing the modernization of the systems and processes used to manage EIA's extensive data operations.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) regulates and oversees key interstate aspects of the electric power (including hydropower), natural gas and oil pipeline industries. The Commission assists consumers in obtaining reliable, efficient and sustainable energy services at a reasonable cost through appropriate regulatory and market means. Regulated entities pay fees and charges sufficient to recover the Commission's full cost of operations.

Ensure Just and Reasonable Rates, Terms and Conditions.—One of the Commission's fundamental statutory responsibilities is to ensure that rates, terms and conditions for wholesale sales and transmission of electric energy and for transportation of natural gas are just and reasonable and not unduly discriminatory or preferential. To fulfill this responsibility, the Commission uses a combination of market and regulatory means, complemented by oversight and enforcement measures. For example, the Commission seeks to improve the competitiveness of organized wholesale electric markets, which in turn encourages new entry by supply-side and demand-side resources, spurs innovation and deployment of new technologies, improves operating performance, and exerts downward pressure on costs. The Commission will continue to pursue market reforms to allow all resources to compete in jurisdictional markets on a level playing field. Another example of the Commission's use of market and regulatory means in support of this goal is found in the Commission's requirements for public utility transmission providers to participate in an open and transparent regional transmission planning process and to allocate appropriately the costs of new transmission facilities stemming from such a process. In addition, the Commission approves cost-based, and where appropriate, market-based rates for the interstate transportation of natural gas and oil on jurisdictional pipelines, and for the interstate transmission and wholesale sales of electric energy. The Commission also prevents the accumulation and exercise of market power by reviewing merger and other transactions in the electric industry to ensure that these proposals will not harm the public interest. The Commission accepts tariff provisions, as appropriate, to allow natural gas and oil pipelines and public utilities to modify their services to meet their customers' needs. Oversight and enforcement are essential complements to the Commission's approach to ensure that rates, terms and conditions of service are just and reasonable and not unduly discriminatory or preferential. The Commission will review internal compliance programs as part of its compliance audits, issue publicly available audit reports, and engage in formal and informal outreach efforts to promote effective compliance programs. Audits are planned and prioritized using a risk-based approach in order to maximize the impact of the Commission's resources. The Commission also conducts public and non-public investigations of possible violations of the statutes, regulations, rules, orders, and tariffs administered by the Commission. When violations of sufficient seriousness are discovered, the Commission attempts to resolve the investigation through settlement with appropriate sanctions and future compliance improvements before recommending that the Commission initiate further enforcement proceedings.

Promote Safe, Reliable, Secure, and Efficient Infrastructure.—The Commission plays an important role in the development of energy infrastructure that operates efficiently, safely and reliably. One aspect of the Commission's role in energy infrastructure development stems from siting authority that includes licensing non-federal hydropower projects, certificating interstate natural gas pipelines and storage projects, authorizing liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities, and, in certain circumstances, permitting electric transmission lines. Throughout all of these processes, the Commission's goal is to expedite application processing without compromising environmental responsibilities or public participation. The Commission encourages, and sometimes requires, project proponents to engage in early involvement with state and federal agencies, Indian tribes, affected landowners and the public. Another aspect of the Commission's role in energy infrastructure development stems from the Commission's responsibility for the safety of LNG and non-federal hydropower facilities throughout the entire life cycle of a project: design review, construction and operation. To meet this mandate, FERC primarily relies on physical inspections of the facilities. The Commission is incorporating risk-informed decision making into its dam safety program. By doing so, the Commission is focusing its resources on those structures that pose the greatest risk. The Commission also has an important role in maintaining the reliability of the electric transmission grid. A Commission-certified Electric Reliability Organization (ERO) develops and enforces mandatory reliability standards, subject to the Commission's oversight and approval. The Reliability Standards development process uses an open and inclusive process that employs extensive negotiation, consultation and coordination among many stakeholders. Regional Entities may also develop regional Reliability Standards or regional modifications to a national Reliability Standard. In all such cases, the Commission must either accept or remand these filings. The Commission may also, upon its own motion or upon complaint, order the ERO to submit a proposed reliability standard or a modification of an existing reliability standard that addresses a specific reliability matter. Once proposed standards are filed, it is important that the Commission respond in a timely manner so that mandatory and enforceable standards affecting reliability can be implemented in a timely manner. In addition, the Commission will provide leadership, expertise and assistance in identifying, communicating and seeking comprehensive solutions to significant potential cyber and physical security risks to the energy infrastructure under the Commission's jurisdiction.

Mission Support through Organizational Excellence.—The public interest is best served when the Commission operates in an efficient, responsive and transparent manner. The Commission achieves this operational state by maintaining processes and providing services in accordance with governing statutes, authoritative guidance, and prevailing best practices. Facilitating understanding of how the Commission carries out its responsibilities and maintaining public trust in the Commission are important components of the Commission's commitment to organizational excellence. Trust and understanding increase acceptance of FERC decisions and reduces the potential for contentiousness toward FERC rules and regulations, thus enabling the creation and enforcement of policy. Through the use of the Commission's eLibrary and eSubscriptions web pages, the public can obtain extensive information concerning documents both submitted to and issued by the Commission. The Commission also manages several social media sites to promote transparency and open communication. In FY 2015, the Commission expects to have advanced tracking software that will monitor and measure the effectiveness and reach of its social media. More generally, the Commission prioritizes resource allocations and makes prudent investments in relation to specific program activities or challenges. In meeting this commitment, the Commission is making new investments in its human capital, information technology resources, and physical infrastructure. Because Commission employees are directly responsible for achieving FERC's mission, the Commission allocates over two-thirds of its budget to directly cover the compensation costs of its employees on an annual basis. Given this significant investment, the Commission places extremely high value on its employees and is focused on ensuring their success. The Commission continues to focus its human capital efforts on the competencies and positions most affected by the potential loss of approximately 30 percent of its staff to retirement by FY 2018. The Commission will focus on the execution of its hiring processes to ensure it maximizes allocated financial resources in a timely fashion. At the same time, the headquarters building lease term expires in September 2015. The Commission is seeking to exercise the lease extension and will oversee a complex multi-year renovation effort to realize mandated space-savings.

Title XXXIV, Subtitle B of Public Law 104–106 required the Department to sell the government's interest in Naval Petroleum Reserve No. 1 (NPR-1; Elk Hills) pursuant to the terms of the Act. The sale occurred in February 1998. Section 3415 of the Act required, among other things, that the Department make an offer of settlement based on the fair value of the State of California's longstanding claims to two parcels of land ("school lands'') within the Reserve. Under the Act, nine percent of the net proceeds were reserved in a contingent fund in the Treasury for payment to the State. In compliance with the Act and in order to remove any cloud over title which could diminish the sales value of the Reserve, the Department entered into a settlement agreement with the State on October 11, 1996, in which the Department agreed to compensate the State of California for its claim of title to two sections of land with NPR-1. The "Settlement Agreement" stipulates installments reserved by the Act will be paid to the State. Installments totaling $299,520,000 have been paid to date. On April 21, 2011 the Department settled NPR-1 final equity with Chevron. Under the terms of the settlement, Chevron paid $108,000,000 to the United States. That, in turn, increased the net proceeds of the sale. On August 3, 2011, the Department and the State agreed on the final payment of $15,579,815 with respect to the longstanding claim on the two sections of land.

The Northeast Home Heating Oil Reserve provides an emergency supply of home heating oil supply for the Northeast States during times of inventory shortages and significant threats to immediate further supply. In order to comply with Northeast states' emission standards, the Reserve was converted from 2 million barrels of high sulfur heating oil to 1 million barrels of Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD). This fuel is stored in commercial terminals located at Groton, CT and Boston, MA. The FY 2015 Budget continues the operation and management of the Reserve, including the solicitation of new leases for the Northeast commercial storage terminals.

A new nuclear waste management approach was outlined in the Administrations January 2013 Strategy for the Management and Disposal of Used Nuclear Fuel and High Level Radioactive Waste and the FY 2015 Budget reflects this new Strategy. The Budget includes a proposal to implement funding reforms needed to support the new approach, which includes the collection of one-time fees anticipated to begin in the 2023 timeframe. Additional discussion of the proposal can be found in the narrative for the Department of Energy's Nuclear Energy account.

In FY 2010, the Department closed the Yucca Mountain Project and the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management. Residual obligations and outlays in the Nuclear Waste Disposal account are associated with Yucca project closeout activities and remaining legacy activities such as accounting.

Section 136 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 established a direct loan program to support the development of advanced technology vehicles and associated components in the United States, known as the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program (ATVM). The 2009 Continuing Resolution (CR), enacted on September 30, 2008, appropriated $7.5 billion to support a maximum of $25 billion in loans under the ATVM. The ATVM provides loans to automobile and automobile part manufacturers for the cost of re-equipping, expanding, or establishing manufacturing facilities in the United States to produce advanced technology vehicles or qualified components and for associated engineering integration costs.

The FY 2015 Budget reflects placeholder estimates for direct loan subsidy costs. These estimates are not related to any specific project proposals. DOE will calculate the credit subsidy cost of any direct loan on a case-by-case basis in accordance with Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990 (FCRA) and OMB Circular A-11. For any project, the terms and conditions of the loan, the risks associated with the project, and any other factor that affects the amount and timing of such cash flows will affect the credit subsidy cost calculations.

The Department requests $4 million in FY 2015 to operate the ATVM and support personnel and associated costs. To ensure that the Department meets statutory and regulatory requirements and implements effective management and oversight of its loan guarantee activities, program funding also will support the procurement of providers of outside expertise in areas such as finance, project engineering, and commercial market assessment. The costs of these outside advisors are paid from the ATVM administrative budget.

As required by the FCRA, this account records, for this program, the subsidy costs associated with the direct loans committed in 1992 and beyond (including modifications of direct loans that resulted from obligations or commitments in any year), as well as administrative expenses of this program. The subsidy amounts are estimated on a present value basis; the administrative expenses are estimated on a cash basis.
