DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) released its "Budget-in-Brief" on February 11th, providing a summary of the proposed EERE budget for fiscal year (FY) 2004. The budget increases only slightly compared to last year's proposed budget, now totaling $1.32 billion. It includes the President's Hydrogen Fuel Initiative and expands the FreedomCAR program, while also providing increased funds for solid state lighting, the Weatherization Assistance Program, and the President's National Climate Change Technology Initiative.
