Upcoming Webinars

March 10:  Live Webinar on Plug-In Electric Vehicle Charging at Colleges and Universities

Webinar Sponsor:  Vehicles Technologies Office

The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled "Higher Ed Plug-in Electric Vehicle Charging Webinar," on Thursday, March 10, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Join this webinar to learn how the Energy Department's EV Everywhere Workplace Charging Challenge is working with higher education campuses across the country to install chargers for plug-in electric vehicles. The Challenge aims to have 500 U.S. employers offering workplace charging by 2018.  Attendees will hear experts from three universities discuss their sustainability missions and highlight how their campus' charging programs enabled them to reduce commuter emissions, find new research opportunities, provide employee and student benefits, enable fleet charging, and show environmental leadership.

March 14:  Live Webinar on DetecTape—A Localized Visual Detector for Hydrogen Leaks

Webinar Sponsor:  Fuel Cells Technologies Office

The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled "DetecTape—A localized visual detector for hydrogen leaks," on Monday, March 14, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Join this webinar to learn about DetecTape™, a color-changing, self-fusing silicone tape designed to detect hydrogen gas leaks in fuel cell, transmission, storage and generation facilities. Hydrogen equipment operators can use this new visual indicator to quickly identify precise leak locations and initiate maintenance protocols, expediting the restoration of equipment while maintaining a safe workplace. The chemochromic gas detector combines Element One's hydrogen reactive pigment with Midsun Specialty Products' UV-resistant, self-fusing silicone tape. Lab testing reports performed at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory over the past 13 months are available upon request. Field trials are also underway with several prominent laboratories, facilities, and stations in the hydrogen community.
