Upcoming Webinars

January 23: Live Webinar on Instrumentation for Monitoring Marine Renewable Energy Devices

Webinar Sponsor: U.S. Department of Energy Water Power Program

The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled "Instrumentation for Monitoring Marine Renewable Energy Devices" on Thursday, January 23, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. This webinar will highlight themes that arose during a related workshop, including discussions on monitoring near-field interactions between marine mammals and marine renewable energy converters, characterizing the distribution and habitat use of marine animals in the vicinity of the converters, and measuring sound produced by marine renewable energy converters. If you do not have a microphone for the webinar, call 866-528-1882 or 509-375-4555 (Conference ID 7581249).

No registration is required; access the webinar on January 23.

January 23: Live Webinar on Energy Efficiency in Correctional Facilities

Webinar Sponsor: Weatherization and Intergovernmental Program

The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled "Energy Efficiency in Correctional Facilities" on Thursday, January 23, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Investing in our nation's correctional facilities to improve their energy efficiency and sustainability provides an extraordinary opportunity to reduce the financial and human capital costs of prisons through reduced energy and resource consumption, while engaging inmates in hands-on work experience and training that prepares them for jobs in the emerging clean energy economy. This webinar will focus on how state energy offices can initiate and support energy efficiency investments at correctional facilities to save taxpayers millions in energy costs and produce healthier environments.

January 28: Live Webinar on How to Utilize the National Geothermal Data System

Webinar Sponsor: EERE's Geothermal Technologies Office

The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled "How to Utilize the National Geothermal Data System" on Tuesday, January 28, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The National Geothermal Data System (NGDS) will serve as a platform for sharing consistent and reliable geothermal-relevant technical data with users of all types and supplying tools relevant for their work. Participants will engage in a live demo on how to use the NGDS and will learn how this content-rich data can support the discovery and development of commercial-scale geothermal energy production.

January 30: Live Webinar on Overcoming Persistent Barriers to Energy Efficiency in Multifamily Housing through Partnerships

Webinar Sponsor: Weatherization and Intergovernmental Program

The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled "Overcoming Persistent Barriers to Energy Efficiency in Multifamily Housing through Partnerships" on Thursday, January 30, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Multifamily housing presents tremendous opportunities for improving energy efficiency nationwide, but has been a perennially difficult sector to tackle. While in many cases multifamily work has fallen outside of the jurisdiction of state energy offices (SEOs), this webinar will discuss how SEOs can play a key role by partnering with entities like housing authorities, utilities, and private investors to enhance and support energy efficiency policies and programs in this sector.
