On December 12, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the launch of the Office of Critical and Emerging Technology.
The DOE News Release states in part:
Critical and emerging technologies (CET) have broad applications throughout DOE, such as clean energy, national defense, and pandemic preparedness. Major advances in CET hold extraordinary potential for the economy and national security but also pose significant risks, and DOE’s new office will focus the Department’s efforts to ensuring that its capabilities are helping to solve critical science, energy, and security challenges.
