2014 Annual Merit Review and Peer Evaluation Meeting Each year, the Annual Merit Review provides a forum for evaluation and discussion of the Vehicle Technologies Office's projects. Reviewers evaluate the projects' contributions to the program's mission and goals and take into account the breadth, depth, appropriateness, accomplishments, and potential of these activities. Based on these criteria, reviewers provide numeric scores and meaningful comments to create a comprehensive project report card. The recommendations from the reviewers are taken into consideration by DOE in generating future work plans.

Alaska Rural Energy Conference The Alaska Rural Energy Conference is a three-day event offering a large variety of technical sessions covering new and ongoing energy projects in Alaska, as well as new technologies and needs for Alaska's remote communities. The 2013 conference in Anchorage attracted almost 500 people from more than 75 villages and towns in Alaska and beyond. Building on the growing success, the Alaska Energy Authority and the Alaska Center for Energy and Power have joined forces again to organize and sponsor the 9th annual Alaska Rural Energy Conference. This year's agenda will include two half-day tours on Sept. 22 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.: 1) Aurora Energy/Superior Pellets/Fairbanks Foodbank Micro-turbine, and 2) UAF Power Plant/ACEP Energy Technology Facility/Fairbanks Natural Gas. Space is limited, so attendees are encouraged to register for the tours on the main registration page as soon as possible.

DOE Tribal Renewable Energy Series Webinar: Successful Project Financing Mechanisms - ESPCs and UESCs The attendees will learn about two popular mechanisms developed for federal agencies to finance renewable energy and energy efficiency projects, energy savings performance contracts (ESPCs) and utility energy service contracts (UESCs). The discussion includes how these two methods allow tribes to develop the projects with limited to no up-front capital costs, thus minimizing the need for including the project costs in budgets or requesting congressional appropriations for them. The speakers will also identify best implementation practices developed over nearly 15 years and hundreds of projects.

Register online. For more information, contact the Tribal Energy Program Help Desk.

SDI Shifting Seasons Summit Hosted by the College of Menominee Nation Sustainable Development Institute (SDI), this three-day summit will focus on different levels of climate change adaptation training for tribes. There will also be ample opportunities for networking among indigenous practitioners, tribal leaders and land managers, federal agencies, and climate change scientists. The information is specific to the Northeast region but is open to all who are interested in the issues of climate change and tribes. The event is being planned with assistance from the Northern Arizona University Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals and Michigan State University faculty and is funded by the U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Indian Affairs Climate Change program and the Northeast Climate Science Center. Additional assistance will be provided from the Penn State University-led Sustainable Climate Risk Management Strategies network. For tribes in the northeast who may not be able to travel to the summit, some funding is available to set up satellite locations for participation via live streaming broadcast.

Please contact pwaukau@menominee.edu for more information.

DOE Tribal Renewable Energy Series Webinar: Putting It All Together Attendees will hear a recap of the information covered in the previous webinars and the tremendous opportunities that are waiting to be taken advantage of. Attendees will hear about the data from a 2012 National Renewable Energy Laboratory report, which cites that American Indian land comprises 2% of U.S. land but contains an estimated 5% of all renewable energy resources. Presenters include participants in the Strategic Technical Assistance Response Team (START) Program and the Indian Country Energy and Infrastructure Working Group. Attendees will learn about the DOE Office of Indian Energy collaborations and tribal experiences that identified obstacles and opportunities in energy and related infrastructure development and capacity building in Indian Country. The question-and-answer session will emphasize the need to get feedback from the key stakeholders on the topics for the 2015 Tribal Webinar Series.
