DOE Announces Upcoming Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Webinars
June 06, 2012
DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy offers webinars to the general public on subjects ranging from how to adopt 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.
June 20: Live Webcast on Accelerating Innovation in Fuel Cells
The Energy Department, in partnership with the Battelle Commercialization Council of Labs, will present a live webcast titled Accelerating Innovation: Fuel Cells on Wednesday, June 20, 2012, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EDT. This webcast will highlight four fuel cell-focused technologies developed at DOE national laboratories, all of which are found on EERE's Energy Innovation Portal. During this webcast, attendees will learn about cutting-edge hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, with a focus on core-shell nanocatalysts for hydrogen production and fuel cell electrodes, as well as activated aluminum hydride hydrogen storage. Presenter Kimberley Elcess of Brookhaven National Laboratory will participate in a question-and-answer session at the end of the presentation.
June 7: Live Webcast on Streamlining ESPCs for Small Sites
The Energy Department will present a live webcast titled Streamlining ESPCs for Small Sites on Thursday, June 7, 2012 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The session will benefit energy managers and other professionals interested in learning how federal facilities can realize energy and water savings in six months or less with a new project funding approach—the Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) ENABLE program. Subject matter will include eligibility criteria and the use of standardized forms, as well as self-assessments to reduce application time, costs, reviews, and approvals.
May 22: DOE Highlights Tool to Estimate the Economic Benefits of Fuel Cell Adoption
The Energy Department presented a live webinar on May 22, 2012, featuring a new modeling tool for estimating the economic benefits of fuel cells in early market applications. The tool, called "JOBS and economic impacts of Fuel Cells (JOBS FC)," estimates the number of jobs created by deploying fuel cells in forklifts, backup power, and prime power applications.
