October 16: Live Webcast on the California Fuel Cell Partnership's Roadmap to the Commercialization of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles
The Energy Department will present a live webcast titled California Fuel Cell Partnership's Roadmap to the Commercialization of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles on October 16, 2012, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. This webinar will focus 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. CaFCP 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.
October 16: Webinar on Net Zero Energy Communities in California and Hawaii
On Tuesday, October 16, the Energy Department will host a webinar titled Net Zero Energy Communities from 3:00 to 4:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time as part of the EERE Community Energy Success Stories series. The webinar will feature presentations from two net zero energy communities in California and Hawaii. The University of California, Davis West Village presentation will deal with the largest planned zero energy community in the United States. The Kaupuni Village, Waimea, Hawaii presentation will focus on Kaupuni Village as an example of bridging cultural values with the desire for sustainable living.
