In response to your requests, we are pleased to announce the report template is now available on Communication Standards. The report template is in line with current EERE Identity and Design Standards and will aid in the production of technical reports.

The new report template provides an outline that includes tips and formatting instructions. The report template is available as an InDesign file. If you do not have Adobe InDesign, you can use the design layer PDF as a reference for how to format your document using another publishing tool.

The report template sports some key features:

  • Cover: The new report template has a front and back cover that aligns with EERE standards. The front cover includes a place for co-authors and the back cover designates a space for co-branding information. However, the PGT will approve co-branding requests on a case-by-case basis.
  • Tables, graphs, and charts: Formatting instructions, such as font and color, are available in the pink design layer for tables, bar graphs, and pie charts.
  • Captions, bullets, and sidebar boxes: The pink design layer also includes formatting tips and tricks for sidebar boxes which highlight text, image captions, and bullets.
  • Sections: The report template clearly defines each section including the foreword, preface, acknowledgements, nomenclature of acronyms, executive summary, report body, glossary, references, and bibliography. You may modify these sections as necessary.

If you have any questions regarding the report template feel free to contact EERE Communications.
