Join us for a one-hour webinar with the California Energy Commission (CEC) to learn more about its “beyond batteries” solicitations.
This webinar will cover the basics of what a virtual power plant is and how it can create value for both utilities and customers, with examples from real-world programs.
Speakers from PNNL, National Grid, and DOE will discuss Nantucket’s new battery energy storage system.
The speakers on this first webinar of the U.S. Offshore Wind Collaborative (USOWC) and Clean Energy States Alliance series to explore how to build the U.S. offshore wind supply chain will walk us through their experience working for the UK’s Crowne Estate to enable supply chain development for Round 3 of the UK’s Offshore Wind Energy Strategy and Structure. The speakers have a decade of experience in working to build the UK’s offshore wind supply chain and market.
This is the first part of a two-part series of webinars for CESA members and members of the State-Federal RPS Collaborative to explore the topic of the greenhouse gas impacts of biomass energy and implications for state RPS and renewable policy, in light of the recent Manomet report, “Biomass Sustainability and Carbon Policy Study.”
CESA’s Fall 2010 Members Meeting took place in Washington, DC. This members-only conference included presentations by clean energy experts and plenty of opportunity for CESA members to network and collaborate on shared challenges and experiences.
The National Summit on RPS provides a forum for state officials interested in implementing or increasing the effectiveness of their RPS programs to meet an exchange ideas. The 2010 Summit was held in conjunction with the Renewable Energy Markets conference in Portland, Oregon.
In this webinar presentation, landscape architect Jean Vissering reviews her draft report for CESA, “A Visual Impact Assessment Process for Wind Energy Projects.” This report was created as part of CESA’s States Advancing Wind Project, funded by DOE’s Wind Powering America program.
This webinar reviews Feed-in Tariff policy options for states, given the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC’s) July 15, 2010 ruling that state legislatures and PUCs are preempted from establishing a FIT rate that is inconsistent with PURPA.
On this NCSL-CESA webinar, individuals working on hydrogen & fuel cell commercialization and deployment from four organizations will provide an overview of their work and resources they have created that are helpful to state clean energy officials.
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.
