DOE Announces Webinars on Hydrogen Production Analysis Models, an Eastern Interconnection Energy Zones Mapping Tool, and More

July 03, 2013

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.

Upcoming Webinars

July 9: Live Webinar on Hydrogen Production Analysis Using the H2A v3 Model

Webinar Sponsor: EERE's Fuel Cell Technologies Office

The Energy Department will present a live webcast titled "Hydrogen Production Analysis Using the H2A v3 Model" on Tuesday, July 9, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. EERE has developed a series of publicly-available techno-economic modeling tools for evaluating the environmental impacts and costs of hydrogen delivered to fuel cell electric vehicles. This webinar will address one of these models in detail, the H2A (Hydrogen Analysis) model, which allows a user to estimate the cost of producing hydrogen from a variety of different technical pathways and feedstock resources. The H2A model can also be used to compare the relative advantages of various technologies for cost-effective and environmentally-friendly hydrogen production.

July 9: Live Webinar on a New Energy Zones Mapping Tool for the Eastern Interconnection

Webinar Sponsor: Argonne National Laboratory

The Energy Department will present a live webcast titled "New Energy Zones Mapping Tool for the Eastern Interconnection" on Tuesday, July 9, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. This webcast will demonstrate the EISPC Energy Zones Mapping Tool, a web-based decision support system used to locate areas with high suitability for clean power generation in the U.S. portion of the Eastern Interconnection, which has been developed for the Eastern Interconnection States Planning Council (EISPC) by Argonne National Laboratory in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The tool is available online and includes nine clean (low- or no-carbon) energy resource categories and 29 types of clean energy technologies.
