November 07, 2012
EERE offers webinars to the public on a range of subjects, from adopting the latest energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies to training for the clean energy workforce. Webinars are free; however, advanced registration is typically required. You can also watch archived webinars and browse previously aired videos, slides, and transcripts.
November 7, 2012: Live Webcast on Strategic Energy Management
The Energy Department and the State and Local Energy Efficiency Action Network (SEE Action) will present a webcast on successful strategic energy management programs for public and commercial buildings today, Wednesday, November 7 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Guest speakers from the Cities of Arlington, Virginia and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as well as from the State of North Carolina will discuss their experience with these programs across city and state-owned buildings and how these strategies are being transferred to the commercial sector. This webcast is hosted by SEE Action's Existing Commercial Buildings Working Group, which offers state and local governments resources to improve energy efficiency in public and private commercial buildings through a "whole-building" approach.
November 20, 2012: Live Webcast on District Heating with Renewable Energy
The Energy Department will present the next Community Renewable Energy Success Stories webinar titled District Heating with Renewable Energy on Tuesday, November 20, 2012, from 3:00 to 4:15 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. There will be two presentations; the first presentation discusses the world's largest geothermal heat pump district heating and cooling system being installed at Ball State University in Indianapolis, Indiana. The second presentation highlights the efficiencies gained through systems engineering at the district heating system in St. Paul, Minnesota. Read more about the presenters and these two projects on the CommRE website.
October 22, 2012: Webcast on the Renewable Energy Competency Model
The Energy Department presented a live webcast titled Renewable Energy Competency Model: An Aide to Build a Renewable Energy Skilled Workforce on Monday, October 22, 2012. In order to deploy new renewable energy technologies, U.S. workers will need to have the skills to produce, install, maintain, and service these technologies. This webcast benefited renewable energy industry workforce professionals and employers, as well as community colleges and universities interested in learning how this model can help train skilled workers for renewable energy industry jobs, and how it can be expanded for specific industry use. The Renewable Energy Competency Model was developed by the U.S. Department of Labor with active input from the U.S. Department of Energy's technology experts, along with partners from the postsecondary education field and the renewable energy industry, to identify the crosscutting competencies needed for workers in the renewable energy sector.
October 16: Webcast on the California Fuel Cell Partnership's Roadmap to the Commercialization of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles
The Energy Department presented a live webcast titled California Fuel Cell Partnership's Roadmap to the Commercialization of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles on October 16, 2012. The webinar focused on a road map which identifies a need for 68 strategically-placed hydrogen stations in California by January 2016. Now available on the California Fuel Cell Partnership's website, the road map represents a collaborative and collective effort by stakeholders from industry, academia, non-governmental organizations, and government to design a pragmatic road map for hydrogen station placement, enabling the deployment of tens of thousands of fuel cell electric vehicles in California. The California Fuel Cell Partnership is a collaboration of organizations, including auto manufacturers, energy providers, government agencies, and fuel cell technology companies, that work together to promote the commercialization of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
