June 24: Live Webinar on Tribal Renewable Energy Projects
The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled "Regulatory Impacts for Renewable Energy Tribal Projects on Indian Lands" on Wednesday, June 24, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. In this continuation of the Tribal Renewable Energy webinar series, attendees will learn how Tribes play an increasingly critical role in regulating renewable energy projects on their lands. Speakers will discuss community-affecting environmental laws and regulations, such as the National Environmental Policy Act, Section 106, new leasing requirements for renewables, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission process. In addition, speakers will discuss the latest developments related to transmission and interconnection, examples of project development timelines, and case studies.
June 24: Live Webinar On New Construction Hybrids
Webinar Sponsor: Building America Program
The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled "New Construction Hybrid-Ductless Heat Pumps Study; Resistance is Futile" on Wednesday, June 24, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. This Building America Program webinar focuses on the use of ductless heat pumps (DHP) as a hybrid "all-electric" heating system in new high-performance homes. Attendees will hear a presentation detailing DHPs and related energy and economic analyses based on monitored field results from an ENERGY STAR community called The Woods at Golden Given, built by Habitat for Humanity. Presenters include Michael Lubliner with Washington State University and Bruce Carter with Tacoma Power.
