This day-long forum is designed to provide tribal leaders, executives, and other project stakeholders with an opportunity to dialogue with experts and tribal investors on clean energy project financing and investing. Tribes looking to finance clean energy projects will find information on federal and state programs, loan programs, and current grant opportunities. Further, cases studies on current tribal clean energy projects will be covered.
In conjunction with the 2014 SunShot Grand Challenge Summit and Peer Review, the SunShot Initiative is hosting a number of workshops for members of the solar community on Thursday, May 22 at the Hilton Anaheim, California. Workshops offer an opportunity for stakeholders to come together and discuss key issues for the solar industry. SunShot team members often take these discussions and workshop outcomes into consideration when developing new funding opportunity announcements.
As a follow up to a recent SunShot request for information, SunShot seeks additional input from the solar community on the design and implementation of a solar recognition program for communities who are making it faster, easier, and cheaper to go solar.
The Energy Department’s national labs welcome partnerships with industry, government, academia, small businesses, and nonprofits. This workshop will showcase the unique capabilities of the national labs and identify how they can be harnessed to achieve technical breakthroughs. A panel of representatives from the national labs will describe their respective lab’s core strengths and capabilities, and opportunities and accessibility to collaborate and work with industry to tackle challenges in solar energy. Following each of the presentations, panel members will field audience questions.
Women In Solar Breakfast, presented by the SunShot Initiative. The women of the SunShot Initiative invite you to join us for a unique opportunity for professional women in the solar community to hear our success stories and learn about opportunities for collaboration. We hope that connections made during this networking event will help strengthen the impact that women have in the solar energy industry.
