What could possibly be TS or SCIF (and yes I looked those up too) about those departments?

I never considered nuclear reactors and such would constitute TS technology, although with all the pieces together it makes perfect sense. You don't want some terrorist just waltzing into a reactor and lifting a crate of plutonium hey.

What this place operates as is far more sinister, to the point where I don't know how I can live with myself, knowing what they are doing down there.
Not a sole would believe me and furthermore, it would test the faith of millions of people.
I must be sick to even have allowed it to continue on for this long! It wouldn't surprise me if I go directly to hell when I expire over this.

Energy Innovation Hubs
Energy Innovation Hubs are multi-disciplinary meant to advance highly promising areas of energy science and technology from their early stages of research to the point that the risk level will be low enough for industry to commercialize the technologies.
The DOE budget includes $280 million to fund eight Energy Innovation Hubs, each of which is focused on a particular energy challenge. Two of the eight hubs are included in the EERE budget and will focus on integrating smart materials, designs, and systems into buildings to better conserve energy and on designing and discovering new concepts and materials needed to convert solar energy into electricity. Another two hubs, included in the DOE Office of Science budget, will tackle the challenges of devising advanced methods of energy storage and creating fuels directly from sunlight without the use of plants or microbes. Yet another hub will develop "smart" materials that will allow the electrical grid to adapt and respond to changing conditions.
In 2012, The DOE awarded $120 million to the Ames Laboratory to start a new EIH, the Critical Materials Institute, which will focus on improving the supply of rare earth elements, which is controlled by China.
Management and organization:
The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's mission, according to the U.S. Department of Energy's Web site, is to strengthen America's energy security, environmental quality, and economic vitality in public-private partnerships that enhance energy efficiency and productivity; bring clean, reliable and affordable energy technologies to the marketplace; and make a difference in the everyday lives of Americans by enhancing their energy choices and their quality of life.
The Office of EERE is led by the Assistant Secretary of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, who is appointed by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. The Office manages ten major programs, each of which is responsible for research, development, and outreach in a particular field of renewable energy or energy efficiency.
The Acting Assistant Secretary of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is Dr. David T. Danielson.
EERE is divided internally into several different offices that are responsible for different aspects of its operations.
Commercialization and Deployment
Golden Field Office
Technology Advancement and Outreach
The Office of EERE's annual budget is determined by annual congressional appropriations. The Office of EERE received $1,457,241,000 in fiscal year 2007, $1,722,407,000 in fiscal year 2008, and requested $1,255,393,000 for fiscal year 2009. These funds are divided among the ten EERE programs and internal costs such as program direction, program support, and facilities and infrastructure.
