The Department of Energy (DOE) office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is offering webinars to the public on subjects ranging from how to adopt the latest energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies to training for the clean energy workforce. Webinars are free; however, advanced registration is typically required. You can also watch archived webinars and browse previously aired videos, slides, and transcripts. Currently scheduled webinars include:

August 8: Live Webcast on Accelerating Innovation: Biomass
The Energy Department, in partnership with the Battelle Commercialization Council of Labs, will present a live webcast titled Accelerating Innovation: Biomass on Wednesday, August 8, 2012, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. This webcast will highlight several biomass-focused National Laboratory technologies, all of which are found on EERE’s Energy Innovation Portal. During this webcast, attendees will learn about cutting edge advances in biomass technology such as using cyanobacteria in photosynthesis conversions of CO2 to fuels and chemicals. Speakers, including Jianping Yu of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, will participate in a question-and-answer session at the end of the presentation.

Register now to attend the webcast.

August 15: Live Webcast on Environmental Sustainability in Biofuel Production
The Energy Department will present a live webcast titled Assessing Impacts of Regional Water Resource Use and Availability on Bioenergy Production on August 15, 2012, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. This webinar is intended for local, county and state water managers; working farmers and biofuel leaders; students and professionals in the fuel and energy sectors; and policymakers. The session will provide an overview of requirements for water resources, as well as a discussion of the environmental impacts attributable to wastewater from biofuels production. Case studies will be presented to highlight the unique aspects of the water footprint of biofuels, demonstrating the complex nature of the energy-water relationship.
