On behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Wind Energy Technologies Office, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is hosting a 4-hour Distributed Wind Workshop for Federal agencies. When most people think of distributed generation, they think of rooftop solar photovoltaics, but distributed wind systems can also produce electricity for on-site or local consumption. Close to 1 GW of distributed wind has been installed in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands for homes, businesses; military sites; manufacturing plants; and local, state, and Federal facilities. Federal agencies may be unfamiliar with distributed wind in general, its potential applications, the economics of wind projects, and how to deploy distributed wind at Federal sites. This workshop is designed to educate Federal agency stakeholders on those issues.
The applications of engineering and science associated with cleaning up hazardous waste sites continue to evolve rapidly. The goal of the symposium is to facilitate an interactive engagement between professionals from government and the private sector related to relevant and topical issues affecting this field. This symposium is sponsored by the American Society of Military Engineers. The registration fee is being waived for government employees.
The Federal Utility Partnership Working Group (FUPWG) meets twice per year to share success stories, information on Federal Energy Management Program activities and other business.
