The I2SL Annual Conference and Technology Fair is an international conference focused on energy efficiency and environmental sustainability in laboratories and related facilities. Through technical sessions, demonstrations, and exhibits, lab owners, operators, designers, engineers, safety managers, and users exchange information covering the life cycle of the laboratory from design to use to disposal of products and packaging.
This conference is hosted by Green Roofs for Healthy Cities and the Green Infrastructure Foundation focus on green infrastructure implementation and resilience. The conferences explore the latest science on green infrastructure performance, economic valuation, public policy developments, new technological developments, financing, and best practices.
The Federal sustainability community is cordially invited to attend the 2019 Federal Environmental Symposium, October 30-31, 2019, hosted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) at the Natcher Center campus in Bethesda, MD. This year's theme is Federal Agencies Leading Environmental Change, for the purpose of sharing best practices, success stories, partnerships, and challenges and achievements of the federal practitioner community. The event schedule, registration dates, and continuous updates to the event can be found on the conference website.
November 2019
The AWRA 2019 Annual Water Resources Conference is an opportunity to take part in a technical program with a depth and scope that has earned a reputation as one of the most diverse and inclusive conferences in water resources management.
Resilience Week is an annual symposium organized by DOE's Idaho National Laboratory, where private and public partners discuss how they can work together to ensure a secure and reliable flow of energy across the nation. The strategically applied use of renewable energy can increase the resilience of distribution and transmission systems; however, it is important to consider all the aspects of resilience, including the most cost-effective and resilient integration of assets to adapt to and recover from natural disasters and cyber-attack. One of the projects to be discussed at Resilience Week is called Microgrids, Infrastructure Resilience, and Advanced Controls Launchpad (MIRACL), a WETO-funded project targeted at accelerating distributed wind technology development for increased microgrid resilience.
The Federal Utility Partnership Working Group (FUPWG) meets twice per year to share success stories, information about Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) activities, and other business.
Climate scientists from NOAA join with leading architects to share information about building design and adaptation to a changing climate. Senior climate scientists and award-winning architects present in a day-long symposium that appeals to professional architects, planners, building designers, engineers, and those in energy efficient construction. This is the 5th annual forum. The forum is geared towards learning about climate change and ways to achieve energy efficiency in building design.
The Symposium will address the partnership between local knowledge and scientific innovation and include the following topics areas: atmospheric deposition, impacts of climate change, citizen science, water level management, lake remote sensing, sentinel lakes, regional monitoring, lake bioindicators, cyanobacteria and algal blooms, nutrient pollution, flooding and extreme events, and aquatic invasive species.
Landscape architects lead the stewardship, planning, and design of our built and natural environments. ASLA advances landscape architecture through advocacy, communication, education, and fellowship. The ASLA trade show is held annually by ASLA. The ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO draws more than 6,500 attendees and nearly 350 exhibitors each year.
The Behavior, Energy & Climate Change Conference brings together researchers, policymakers, utilities, and businesses focused on energy and behavior to advance knowledge and actionable climate solutions.
EPA's Office of Research and Development's National Homeland Security Research Center (NHSRC) organizes and hosts this international conference on decontamination research and development. Decontamination is one of the critical challenges that the United States and EPA would face in recovering from a major chemical, biological, or radiological (CBR) incident. The conference is designed to facilitate presentation, discussion, and further collaboration on research and development focused on an all-hazards approach to cleaning up contaminated buildings (both interior and exterior), infrastructure, and other areas/materials. The conference continues to focus strongly on matters involving CBR threat agents, but also includes all hazard elements.
Greenbuild's conference and expo is dedicated to green building. The ideals and passion of the green building community are displayed at Greenbuild's conference. Greenbuild brings together industry leaders, experts and frontline professionals dedicated to sustainable building in their everyday work, and a unique energy is sparked. Greenbuild is a perfect opportunity to meet with green building colleagues, network with leading industry professionals and learn from international representatives from around the world.
December 2019
The Symposium focuses on the Department of Defense's (DoD's) environmental and installation energy issues. The Symposium brings together environmental and energy researchers and technology developers with the defense end-user and regulatory communities to showcase cutting edge environmental technologies and ideas.
The Brownfields Training Conference includes a dynamic educational program of speakers, discussions, mobile workshops, films and other learning formats that are calibrated to provide attendees with case study examples, program updates, and useful strategies for meeting our brownfield challenges head on. Featuring dozens of educational sessions and mobile workshops including many showcasing the City of Angels and the redevelopment in the surrounding region, the exceptional training offered by the conference has something for both beginners and seasoned professionals.
January 2020
NCSE 2020 will explore the various ways that science serves and contributes to the decision-making process, highlighting cases in which science has helped improve environmental decisions, as well as examples in which a lack of science has compromised the efficacy of decisions and policies. The Annual Conference will bring together scientists, decision-makers, industry leaders, and subject-matter experts to effectively bridge the cultures of science and policymaking toward a more resilient and sustainable future and societal well-being.
Held in partnership with the University of Hawai?i at Manoa, this international conference encourages academics and scholars to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum stimulating respectful dialogue, by bringing together university scholars working throughout Hawai'i, the United States, Asia, and beyond to share ideas and research at the intersection of education and sustainability.
September 2020
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the United States will host the 2020 SolarPACES conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In October 2020, SolarPACES (Solar Power and Chemical Energy Systems), a program of the International Energy Agency, will bring together researchers from around the world to talk about the latest research developments in CSP and visit one of the leading CSP research sites in the world at DOE's Sandia National Laboratories.
