Webinar & Events - 2010
This webinar, the fifth in a series for the State/Federal Marine Energy Technology Advancement Project (METAP), presents the results of NREL’s MHK testing needs and capabilities assessment. The managers of a few of the existing US test facilities present on their current and planned MHK testing infrastructure and activities in Hawaii, New England and the Northwest. Presenters also discuss opportunities for collaboration and information sharing across test facilities.
This webinar, the fourth in a series for the State/Federal Marine Energy Technology Advancement Project (METAP), will review the ecological effects of Marine Hydrokinetic (MHK) projects and the regulatory response. To date, MHK systems and their impacts have not been widely tested. As more MHK projects are going through state and federal licensing applications, understanding of potential environmental impacts to aquatic organisms and marine ecosystems is increasing. This webinar will focus on the MHK environmental permitting process in the US, the environmental challenges posed by MHK projects, risk evaluation and potential mitigation strategies.
This webinar, the third in a series for the State/Federal Marine Energy Technology Advancement Project (METAP), reviews the regulatory framework surrounding marine energy projects.
This webinar, the second in a series for CESA’s Marine Energy Technology Advancement Project (METAP), will provide an overview of the industry status of marine energy technologies. Speakers will discuss the following topics: What affects the cost and performance of marine renewables? How can future costs be reduced to become cost competitive? What are the obstacles to getting projects in the water? What is role of states in advancing the technology?
This webinar explored the variety of useful and innovative financing tools that states can use to support greater deployment of distributed wind projects, as well as tools states can use to complement existing federal financing mechanisms such as the Investment Tax Credit and Treasury Cash Grant. This webinar is the second in a series of state wind policy briefings organized by Clean Energy States Alliance’s States Advancing Wind project. It is made possible by the Department of Energy’s Wind Powering America State Outreach Project.
In this webinar, John M. May (Stern Brothers & Co.) will discuss specific case studies for the use of bond debt in the biofuels, biomass, wind, solar, cogen/CHP and geothermal and hydro segments.
This webinar launched a new DOE/NREL/States Marine Energy Technology Advancement Partnership and introduced participants to the projects purpose and activities. The webinar also provided an overview of marine energy technologies and discussed the U.S. DOE marine energy program and roadmap.
This presentation is one in a series on financing tools and examining the role of state clean energy funds as equity investors in emerging clean energy companies.
This webinar explores how states can support behind-the-meter, distributed generation wind projects with smart financial and technical assistance. It is the first in a series of state wind policy briefings organized by Clean Energy States Alliance’s States Advancing Wind project.
This webinar, part of the CESA Finance Series, will review the two federal tax credit bonding instruments – CREBs and QECBs – that can be used to finance municipal clean energy projects.
