The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Indian Energy, the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Tribal Energy Program, and the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) will present the next Tribal Renewable Energy Series webinar, Tribal and Utility Partnership Opportunities, on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
“The future utility’s resource portfolio will likely be a hybrid of centralized power plants, distributed generation, microgrids, and demand response programs,” said Randy Manion, Renewable Energy Program Manager at WAPA. “A potential byproduct of that scenario is a more efficient system of generation and consumption that benefits utilities and consumers alike.”
With that perspective in mind, this webinar focuses on opportunities for Tribes and utilities to form partnerships with the potential to improve the energy system and stimulate economic development on tribal lands. Speakers include:
- Randy Manion, WAPA
- Nathan Dexter, DOE Office of Indian Energy
- Anirudh Paduru, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL): Tribal Utility Partnership Opportunities
- Robi Robichaud, NREL: Wind Project Development on Tribal Lands
- James Stack, Palo Alto Utilities: Palo Alto Utilities Renewable Energy Acquisition Plans
Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions during a Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. Register to attend the webinar.
