Commercial-Scale Renewable Energy Project Development and Finance Workshop

July 9, 2013 12:00PM MDT to July 11, 2013 9:00PM MDT

Denver, Colorado

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy is pleased to announce the “first of its kind” renewable energy development education and training curriculum for tribal leaders, tribal executives, and tribal staff. The curriculum is available through the National Training and Education Resource (NTER) online learning platform, and more in-depth training is being provided through in-person workshops, the first of which is being offered in July. These workshops are an excellent opportunity to build internal capacity on renewable energy development and advance the benefits of renewable energy for Indian Tribes and Alaska Native villages and corporations.

Who Should Attend: This workshop is specifically designed for, and limited to, elected tribal leaders and tribal executives, accountants, and attorneys interested in gaining knowledge and confidence to embark on the path of developing a commercial-scale renewable energy project.

What You Will Learn:
Using course materials and case studies, technical experts from DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will go over the steps necessary to develop and finance  commercial-scale renewable energy projects on tribal lands, including how to:

  • Assess project potential
  • Determine technology options
  • Refine the project
  • Implement financing and construction
  • Plan for project operation and maintenance.
