DOE Webcast Friday: U.S.-China EcoPartnerships Program Members Discuss Clean Energy Projects
June 16, 2011
The U.S. Department of Energy and the Brookhaven National Laboratory have partnered with the Virtual Energy Forum to highlight activities under the U.S.-China EcoPartnership program, a bilateral framework aimed at developing new ways to promote energy security, economic growth, and environmental sustainability in both countries. The EcoPartnership program participants will host live video presentations on Friday, June 17th from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. EDT—providing a global audience with the opportunity to interact with leading experts.
Complimentary registration is available at the Virtual Energy Forum website.
Following an introduction from Mark Ginsberg, senior executive advisor in DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, a keynote presentation will be hosted by EcoPartnership participants from locations in the United States and China. Partners will provide an overview of the Utah-Qinghai EcoPartnership and the roles and capabilities of each partner, as well as the benefits and outcomes that are expected from the activities. Presentation attendees will learn about the clean energy technologies being deployed through the program and how the partnerships are structured. Utah-Qinghai EcoPartnership is one of six partnerships formed during the Third Strategic and Economic Dialogue at the U.S. Department of State on May 10, 2011, presided over by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chinese Vice Chairman of the National Development and Reform Commission Minister Xie Zhenhua.
The Virtual Energy Forum is a leading producer of online events for private- and public-sector energy executives. Because events happen entirely online rather than in a traditional conference location, Virtual Energy Forum attendees have collectively avoided more than 100 million pounds of travel related CO2 emissions.
