Other than the addition of the name LBNL in the copyright statement and the non-endorsement clause, and the tacked on default contribution license, this looks identical to BSD.  Which of those parts are required by DOE funding?
Note that the OSI-approved modified 3-clause BSD does not specify any particular copyright holder or non-endorsee:  https://opensource.org/licenses/BSD-3-Clause
