Signature Projects are intended to bring focus to a selection of U.S. Department of Energy's Water Power Technologies Office (WPTO) projects. By designating a Signature Project, the project reports, datasets, and associated papers can be easily discoverable. By bringing together all aspects of a project, whether a completed legacy project or an ongoing investigation, the MRE community can be informed of what investigations have been undertaken, which have succeeded, what tools are available, and where gaps in information persist.
WPTO projects that are featured as Signature Projects are those for which project outputs are scattered across platforms or are difficult to find; or where the formal project has ended but papers are continuing to accrue. Many of these Signature Projects will be of interest internationally, feature key lessons that have been learned, and may have been the result of collaborations by multiple organizations.
