Learn about opportunities for feasible tribal renewable energy development in a new webinar, Renewable Energy Potential on Tribal Lands, to be held on Wednesday, February 27 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Mountain time.

This is the second in a series of free tribal energy webinars sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs, the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Tribal Energy Program, and Western Area Power Administration.

American Indian land comprises approximately 2% of U.S. land but contains an estimated 5% of all renewable energy resources. To help Tribes make informed decisions about renewable development options for their communities, this webinar will cover:

  • Market context
  • Technical potential of various renewable energy technologies
  • Opportunities for Tribes to partner with the Department of Defense.

The webinar will be presented by the DOE Office of Indian Energy and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), which analyzed data to substantiate the estimated renewable energy technical potential on tribal lands and identify Tribes located near military bases. Presenters include DOE Office of Indian Energy Deputy Director Pilar Thomas and NREL’s Dan Beckley and John Nangle.

At the end of the webinar, there will be an interactive discussion in which participants will have an opportunity to ask questions about tribal renewable energy development potential.

There is no cost to attend the webinar, but advance registration is required. Register now.
