GPP Webinar: Solar Carports: Turning University Parking Facilities into Renewable Electricity Plants

Tuesday, September 26, 2017
1:00 PM-2:00 PM EST
Register now!

There are an estimated 5,300 colleges and universities in the United States, and together, those campus facilities contain millions of parking spaces. This webinar will explore how colleges and universities can transform their underutilized parking facilities into solar power generation systems. By installing on-site solar, institutions can better control their energy costs, reduce their carbon footprints, meet stated renewable energy goals, and develop real-world teaching tools. In addition, solar carports shade and protect cars from the elements, reduce parking lot temperatures, and are a highly visible reminder of an institution’s commitment to renewable energy.

The webinar will feature two case studies of universities with solar carport projects.

  • Michigan State University is outfitting five of its parking lots with solar parking bays for a total of 10 megawatts, which are anticipated to meet five percent of the campuses power needs.
  • University of Massachusetts is home to 11.6 acres of solar carports financed through a 20-year power purchase agreement.

Speakers:

  • Christopher Kent, Program Manager, U.S. EPA's Green Power Partnership
  • Lynda Boomer, Director of Planning, Design and Construction, Michigan State University
  • Wolfgang Bauer, University Distinguished Professor and Senior Consultant in the Office of the Executive Vice President, Michigan State University
  • Ezra Small, Sustainability Manager, University of Massachusetts Amherst

Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) Arbitrage Process

Wednesday, January 17, 2018
1:00 PM-2:00 PM EST

Register today!

On January 17, EPA will host a webinar explaining the process of renewable energy certificate (REC) arbitrage. REC arbitrage is a green power procurement strategy used to simultaneously decrease the cost of renewable electricity use, while still allowing the organization to substantiate renewable electricity use and improve their environmental metrics. Electricity consumers often use this strategy when installing self-financed renewable electricity projects or purchasing renewable electricity directly from a project through a power purchase agreement (PPA). This webinar will explain REC arbitrage and present two case studies.

Presenters:

  • Christopher Kent, Program Manager, U.S. EPA's Green Power Partnership
  • Kevin Hagen, Director Corporate Responsibility, Iron Mountain
  • Jeremy King, Director of Sustainability & Campus Improvement, Denison University

GPP Webinar: State of the Voluntary Green Power Market

Wednesday, February 21, 2018
1 PM EST

Register today! Exit

On Wednesday, February 21st, 2018, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership (GPP) will host a webinar examining the state of the green power market within the United States.

This annual webinar focuses primarily on the voluntary market, through which consumers and institutions voluntarily procure renewable energy for all or part of their electricity needs. The webinar will review:

  • The various green power product options
  • Where these products are available
  • Resource and pricing information
  • The most up-to-date statistics and trends in green power purchasing
  • The continued growth of new green power procurement options, including power purchase agreements (PPAs), community solar programs, and community choice aggregations
  • Spotlight on large green power customers

The presentations will draw heavily on the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's recently published Status and Trends in the U.S. Voluntary Green Power Market (PDF) (63 pp, 6.8MB, About PDF) as well as the Green Power Partnership's program data.

Speakers:

  • Christopher Kent, Program Manager, U.S. EPA's Green Power Partnership
  • Eric O'Shaughnessy, Renewable Energy Analyst, National Renewable Energy Laboratory
