| April 2010

This document contains March 2010 updates to our database on U.S. government investments in energy research, development, demonstration, and deployment (ERD3) through the Department of Energy.  The database, in Microsoft Excel format, tracks DOE appropriations from FY 1978–2010 and the FY 2011 budget request and includes funding for ERD3 from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  It also includes several charts.

The version of the database posted before May 19, 2010, had an inflation error converting the data on deployment programs to 2005$U.S. The link to the database below is current and accurate.  The version posted before June 16, 2010, had errors in the allocation of the "policy and management" funds in energy efficiency, renewable energy, hydrogen, and nuclear fission.
