Webinar & Events - 2023
The Inflation Reduction Act will dramatically accelerate renewable energy development, and the transmission grid will need substantial upgrades to accommodate the shifting generation portfolio. “Grid Enhancing Technologies,” as they were named by FERC, can unlock flexibility and additional capacity on the existing transmission infrastructure, enabling twice as much renewable generation in some regions.
A new study by the Brattle Group explores the cost and ability to serve critical resource adequacy needs from an emerging resource: virtual power plants (VPPs). In this webinar, panelists will discuss the findings of the report and share how VPPs can reduce reliance on high polluting power plants during peak energy use hours.
Ecolibrium3 Founder and CEO Jodi Slick will provide an overview of a community solar array and Resilience Hub in Duluth, Minnesota. This project provides a useful model for community-based organizations and state energy agencies interested in developing their own equity-focused energy and resilience projects.
In this webinar, Berkeley Lab’s Galen Barbose presented key findings from the 2023 edition of “U.S. State Renewables Portfolio & Clean Electricity Standards.”
This webinar featured speakers from Clean Energy Group, Florida Association of Community Health Centers, Direct Relief, and American Microgrid Solutions for a discussion on backup power needs and opportunities at Florida’s Community Health Centers.
In an effort to reduce the energy burden on low-income Michiganders, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy collaborated with local community action agencies and utilities to develop three separate community solar pilot programs. Webinar panelists will discuss how the program partners developed each pilot, what they learned, and what advice they would give to those developing future programs.
Speakers from the Energy Trust will discuss their community engagement programs and expand on lessons learned and best practices.
Can electric vehicles play a role in advancing equity in underserved and historically marginalized communities? Panelists will discuss potential pathways for electric vehicle deployment to lower harmful emissions, reduce transportation expenses, and increase energy resilience in historically marginalized communities.
Panelists from Applied Economics Clinic, Green Mountain Power, NYSERDA, and Albuquerque Public Schools will discuss the barriers to more effective and efficient interconnection of distributed energy storage resources.
As part of a new initiative from the US Department of Energy, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and CESA, CESA is co-hosting the first-ever national meeting to focus on how states and the federal government can work cooperatively to advance states’ efforts to decarbonize. The event will take place in Washington, DC.
