A primary focus of the DOE Office of Indian Energy is to provide Tribes with reliable, accurate, timely information that empowers them to put their energy visions into action. In support of this mission, the Office has released a comprehensive tribal renewable energy development course curriculum and five new publications that provide in-depth guidance on renewable energy development opportunities as well as project planning and financing.

Tribal Energy Development Courses
The DOE Office of Indian Energy’s educational training program is designed to provide tribal leaders and professionals with an overview of renewable energy technologies, as well as advanced information on how to develop and finance a tribal renewable energy project. The foundational and advanced series of courses are available on demand at no charge on the National Training & Education Resource website.

Commercial-Scale Renewable Energy Project Development and Finance Workshop
In addition, the DOE Office of Indian Energy is hosting intensive workshops on the advanced topics, the first of which will be held July 9–11 at DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado. The July training, which will focus on commercial-scale renewable energy project development and finance, is specifically designed for elected tribal leaders and tribal executives, accountants, and attorneys interested in gaining the knowledge and confidence needed to forge ahead with developing a commercial-scale renewable energy project.
