This webinar will summarize the international information exchange on the hydrogen refueling infrastructure challenges and potential solutions to support the successful global commercialization of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles. The information exchange took place in June 2013 at the German Ministry of Transport, in Berlin. Workshop participants included topical experts from Germany, Japan, the United States, Scandinavia, and the European Commission. Key focus areas of the webinar include the station requirements necessary to meet the latest SAE J2601 protocol and the development of alternative fueling protocols, maintaining and measuring purity to the SAE J2619 fuel quality standard, and the availability and accuracy of meters for hydrogen dispensing for 700 bar onboard fueling. Also included is an overview of the current status of key hardware for 700 bar refueling.

Attendees will learn about the latest developments of the five types of renewable energy technologies (biomass, geothermal, low-head hydro, solar, and wind). The attendees will also get comfortable with each technology’s unique characteristics, how they are competing in the marketplace, and how they can be used separately and in combination to provide the most benefit to the Tribal community.

On Tuesday, December 17, 2013, from 1:00 – 2:00 pm (EST), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership (GPP) will host a webinar entitled “Building Your Internal Network: Making the Switch to Green Power.”
The session will address one of the most important elements of organizational clean energy/sustainability strategy: effectively engaging allies across the enterprise.
Particularly for on-site and utility-scale green power opportunities, sustainability and energy staff find that they need to coordinate or collaborate with multiple additional functions within their organization - be it a corporate, institutional or governmental organization. Building the support of an internal network can make all the difference when it comes to making a purchase or installing green power on-site. In this webinar, we will discuss how to build this network, how to leverage other stakeholders’ key issues and address their challenges, and who needs to be involved.
Webinar participants will learn:
Log-in information will be provided upon registration.

Attendees will learn about developing a strategic energy plan, identifying key aspects of successful energy planning, and using available information and resources. The available resources include archived webinars in the series from the DOE Office of Indian Energy Education Initiative. The attendees will understand how the plan (1) enables the Tribe to mobilize the long-term support necessary for energy project development that extends beyond changing political administrations, (2) helps address barriers to energy development by providing a long-term view that prioritizes projects over not just years but several decades, and (3) engages stakeholders from all segments of the community to help the Tribe pursue energy development projects in a thoughtful and strategic manner.

The DOE has found that last year commercial and industrial buildings used approximately 50% of the energy of the United States economy at an estimated cost of $400 billion. Though energy demand has been growing, market potential has been slow to realize, largely due to building owners, property managers and tenants’ lack of awareness of financing options. Reservations regarding upfront costs, the expense of new construction and deep retrofits, as well as the lack of infrastructure support hinder adoption. In order to achieve more widespread implementation of energy efficient techniques, changing the behavior of commercial building owners and managers is paramount.
Providing consumers with information and demonstrable data is one way to help achieve behavioral change. Organizations such as the Environmental Defense Fund’s Investor Confidence Project and the Clean Energy Finance Center have launched an Energy and Loan Performance Data program to collect and analyze public data from utilities and agencies. This data will provide the tools to understand energy use variations and preferences in buildings and eventually promote energy efficiency lending in capital markets. Efforts such as this will help to expand energy efficiency efforts in the C&I market by demonstrating that the energy saving projections are viable.
Financial incentives also aid greatly in moving forward consumer willingness. Whether it is federal and state governments’ incentives in the form of tax credits, or utilities offering rebates, such programs will provide financial support and ease consumer reservations towards sustainable retrofits or constructions. Policy makers, builders, manufacturers, and suppliers will in turn respond to consumer changes, resulting in increased energy efficiency demands in the C&I markets. In addition to these practices, this roundtable will explore other technological innovations and incentive programs that will play a key role in transforming the C&I energy efficiency market.

Success of a clean energy program can mean many things including the achievement of specific carbon emission or waste reduction goals, participation by a certain percentage of a targeted audience, or the lowering of a state or municipality’s energy costs. The third in a series of three communications-focused webcasts, this one will build off of the previous two sessions and explore how communities must publicize the success of their programs to show stakeholders that grants, donations, and other resources have been well spent; encourage ongoing participation and engagement in the program; and foster momentum in achieving clean energy goals. Key points that will be covered in this webcast include how to effectively showcase the benefits and successes of a clean energy initiative and how to effectively share best practices to encourage replication of successes.
