This report represents the output of an open and transparent process, in which input was received from town halls, webinars, hundreds of small group discussions among subject matter experts, dedicated workshops, and focus group discussions. This is the final report of this phase of the community planning process. A FESAC subcommittee will now take up the next phase of this process, using this report to fulfill the charge for long-range strategic planning issued by DOE.
