The Blueprint for Clean Energy webinar series is entering its ninth year.  This year’s series will continue our focus on energy efficiency with an emphasis on the latest developments and opportunities. Through presentations from leaders in the corporate, nonprofit, and public-private arenas, we will explore clean energy (energy efficiency, solar, storage, etc) through the lenses of behavior, policy, finance, and technology.  This team will work in close coordination with the Clean Energy Finance Forum team to explore topics in clean energy finance related to energy efficiency and solar and with the Nature’s Returns webinar team to coordinate scheduling and professional development.

The Blueprint for Clean Energy series will run from October 2017 through May 2018 with bi-monthly online webinars that are free and open to the public. The series is entirely student-run, with a small team responsible for developing the overall content of the series in addition to conducting outreach for speakers, hosting and managing the webinars. Work on the webinar teams will include

  • Attending weekly meetings with other CBEY RA’s working on webinars
  • Coordinating with CEFF editor on topics and themes planned for the series
  • Reaching out to potential presenters

  • Taking the lead, and organizing other students to do marketing (through the CBEY website, newsletter and through the Clean Energy Finance Forum)
  • Moderate the actual webinar (introduce the presenter, take questions from audience, etc.)
  • (When applicable) Write follow up articles for the Clean Energy Finance Forum
