- ECIS Climate Change and National Security Speaker Series
May 1, 2013 to May 1, 2013,
Dr. Richard Alley is the Evan Pugh Professor at the Department of Geosciences, and Earth and Environmental Systems Institute, at the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Alley has traveled from Antarctica to Greenland to help learn the history of Earth's climate and whether the great ice sheets will fall in the ocean and flood our coasts. With over 225 scientific publications, he has been asked to provide advice to the highest levels of government, and been recognized with numerous awards including election to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. He hosted the recent PBS miniseries “Earth: The Operators' Manual,” and has been compared to a cross between Woody Allen and Carl Sagan for his enthusiastic efforts to communicate the excitement and importance of the science to everyone.

- Hydrogen Compatibility of Materials
August 13, 2013 to August 13, 2013,
The Fuel Cell Technologies Office will present a live webinar on August 13, 2013, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) describing hydrogen embrittlement and its impact on hydrogen distribution and storage. In particular, the webinar will examine the challenges and existing guidance for selecting structural materials for hydrogen service. During the webinar, speakers from DOE's Sandia National Laboratories will review the "Technical Reference for Hydrogen Compatibility of Materials," an important tool for identifying promising materials for hydrogen service and summarizing hydrogen compatibility data, as well as discovering gaps in available materials data and standards for qualifying materials for hydrogen service. Register to attend the webinar.
- PV_LIB Toolbox Webinar
August 13, 2013 to August 13, 2013,
Interested in a PV modeling tool that is customizable, flexible, and powerful?
Sandia National Laboratories has developed the PV_LIB Toolbox of PV modeling functions (currently in Mathworks’ MATLAB®), and is providing the library at no cost to PV Performance Modeling Collaborative (PVPMC) members (http://pvpmc.org). PV_LIB functions are open to viewing and provide a great way to deeply explore irradiance translation models, PV performance models (I-V curve generation), inverter performance models, and many other models. Each model is referenced to its source material, where possible.
To learn more about the PV_LIB toolbox, please join us for an introduction and tutorial via webinar on August 13, 2013 from 11:00-12:00 MDT (13:00-14:00 EDT).
- New Solar Rules at the FAA and Sandia’s Glare Analysis Tool
August 29, 2013 to August 29, 2013,
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is updating its rules about siting solar project at or near airport facilities. One key aspect of the new rules is guidelines about siting to avoid instances of glare, potentially dangerous reflections off of solar equipment.
Bill Petrak from the FAA will brief attendees on the new rules all developers should be aware of when siting a project near or on airport property.
Cliff Ho from Sandia National Labs has developed an online tool to help developers avoid glare issues while maximizing electrical output. Dr. Ho will demonstrate this Solar Glare Hazard Analysis Tool and provide tips for developers to better site their projects. Register today!
