Monday What's on the Web: DC Green Scene

The DC Green Scene web site (and email service) provides a list of upcoming environmental events in the Washington DC area.  I highly recommend subscribing to their weekly email notifications if you live in the DC area.  Even if you are unlikely to attend many (or any), it is very useful to know what is going on.

There are typically several listings for every single day, and many of the events are free.  Here are some examples, taken from tomorrow's list:

2011 EIA Energy Conference

The 2011 EIA Energy Conference brings together thought leaders from industry, government, and academia to discuss current and future challenges facing energy markets and policymakers.

GW Solar Institute Symposium 2011

The third annual GW Solar Institute Symposium, "Solar Energy: A Critical Component of Meeting the Clean Energy Challenge," will bring together major figures in the solar arena, including key industry leaders and influential energy experts. The Symposium will feature a keynote address from Minh Le, Chief Engineer of DOE's Solar Energy Technologies Program who will discuss the President's clean energy challenge and the Department's $1/W - SunShot Initiative. Key solar companies will have an opportunity to discuss and respond to the challenge, followed by exciting sessions on private industry use of solar energy and its technological frontiers. The afternoon will address the variability challenge facing the grid, and discuss distributed versus centralized solar with transmission.

FREE Energy Benchmarking Training with DDOE & EPA

The District Department of the Environment, in cooperation with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Apartment and Office Building Association of Metropolitan Washington (AOBA), Pepco, and the U.S. Green Building Council - National Capital Region Chapter (USGBC-NCR), is sponsoring a series of trainings and information sessions for building owners and managers preparing to meet District of Columbia buildings benchmark requirements.
