Energy Efficiency in EPA's Clean Power Plan: Using Building Block #4 to Set and Meet Emissions Goals
November 4 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
As states consider their response to EPA’s proposal and their options for compliance, they need to understand the basis for building block #4, the implications of using energy efficiency policies and programs for compliance, and how to evaluate the energy savings resulting from these programs. This webinar, co-hosted by Resources for the Future (RFF) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), will address these aspects of the opportunities and challenges for energy efficiency under EPA’s Clean Power Plan.
Removing Carbon from the Atmosphere - What the Emergence of "Carbon Negative" Strategies Means for Industry & Government
November 4 | 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
This workshop will explore the different approaches to removing carbon from the atmosphere (including bio-CCS, Direct Air Capture, biochar, and others), and will discuss the political opportunities and challenges presented by these different carbon removal approaches. The workshop will also discuss the overlap between carbon removal technologies and other energy-generation options, and how the two fields could benefit from a shared R&D agenda.
DOE Webinar: Finding the Next Big Thing(s) in Building Energy Efficiency - HIT Catalyst & the Technology Demo Program
November 4 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled "Finding the Next Big Thing(s) in Building Energy Efficiency: HIT Catalyst and the Technology Demo Program." Learn how the Energy Department prioritizes high impact technologies (HITs) to advance energy efficiency. Hear from a Better Buildings program participant who is working with Energy Department staff to test promising technologies in buildings. Learn what they are finding and how you can get involved.
November 5 | 12:45 PM - 2:00 PM
Resources for the Future (RFF) will host its November First Wednesday Semiar on current trends that may have major implications for natural resource consumption and conservation. A panel of experts will discuss the innovations that allow humankind to actually produce more from natural resources, while consuming less.
November 6 | 1:15 PM - 5:05 PM
The Vermont Law School (VLS) Institute for Energy and the Environment, VLS Alumni in Energy, and the Environmental Law Institute are co-sponsoring the Vermont Law School's first annual Alumni in Energy Symposium. The event will contain three interactive, facilitated programs.
November 6 | 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Over the past year, the defense and intelligence communities have issued a slew of reports making it clear that climate change is here and having real impacts on national security. In a new documentary narrated by Matt Damon, "Extreme Realities: Severe Weather, Climate Change, and Our National Security," producers Marilyn and Hal Weiner talk with experts like former CIA Director James Woolsey about climate change, how it could impact national security, and what policymakers can do about it. The Wilson Center will host a screening followed by a panel discussion featuring Marilyn and Hal Weiner alongside Ghassem Asrar of the World Climate Research Program, Sherri Goodman of CNA, and Paul O’Brien of Oxfam America.
