A free webinar called “Economic Market Potential on Tribal Lands and Interactive Tools for Assessments" will take place Wednesday, December 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mountain Time. This webinar is part of the 2017 Expanding Tribal Energy Development Through Partnerships webinar series sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy and the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA).
Developing conventional and renewable energy resources on tribal lands presents significant economic opportunities. Tribal lands consist of more than 56 million acres, representing about 2.3% of the total U.S. land base and an estimated 17.1 million acres of existing and potential fossil energy and mineral resources and vast, untapped renewable energy potential.
Attendees will learn about the technical potential of indigenous energy resources, infrastructure considerations, and tools available for energy supply assessments—including a demo of a new tool developed by DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) under sponsorship of the Office of Indian Energy. NREL engineer Sherry Stout and NREL senior analyst Anelia Milbrandt will present.
There is no cost to attend the webinar, but advance registration is required. Register for the webinar.
