DOE Webinar: Fuel Cells and Renewable Portfolio Standards

June 6, 2011

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Fuel Cell Technologies Program will co-host a webinar with the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) and the Technology Transition Corporation titled "Fuel Cells and Renewable Portfolio Standards" on Thursday, June 9, from noon to 1:00 p.m. Eastern.  

The webinar will explore the reasons why Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPSs) in some states have included both fuel cells that use renewably generated fuels and fuel cells that use natural gas. The webinar will also provide detailed information that state policymakers need to take into account when considering whether to include fuel cells in an RPS. Additionally, the webinar will discuss the reasons why more states are giving increased attention to distributed generation systems – energy systems in which power is produced onsite instead of taken from the grid – including fuel cells.  

Speakers include:

  • L. Scott Larsen, Project Manager, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)
  • Warren Leon, Senior Advisor, CESA
  • Pat Valente, Executive Director, Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition
  • Frank Wolak, Vice President for Government Business, FuelCell Energy, Inc.  

Register now to attend this free webinar. Space is limited.

This series of webinars is designed to increase knowledge of fuel cell technologies and their applications, identify best practices in state hydrogen and fuel cell programs and policies, and provide information and technical assistance to state policy leaders, state renewable energy programs, fuel cell organizations, and others involved in the development of effective hydrogen and fuel cell programs and policies.
