REV is hosting two upcoming webinars on solar panel recycling and thermal networks. See the webinar descriptions below for more information and to register to attend. Both webinars will be recorded so contact Jonathan Dowds (email@example.com) if you are unable to attend but would like to view the recording when it is available.
1) Solar PV & Battery Recycling – Current Options & Future Potential
Renewable Energy Vermont (REV) and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) are collaborating to host a discussion series among stakeholders in the renewable sector, waste management, and state government to explore end-of-life disposal issues for solar power and battery storage equipment in Vermont.
In the second of our three-part conversation, we will be joined by representatives from leading recycling companies as well as governmental and NGO stakeholders working on these issues. Presentations and discussion will cover topics including, toxicity characteristic leaching procedures, minimum volumes, transportation costs, and pricing.
Time & Location: March 29th from 1:00 – 2:30 pm via Zoom
2) The Benefits and Business of Thermal Energy Networks
As we strive for 100% clean energy in Vermont, we need a holistic vision that includes multiple, synergistic technologies. Geothermal and other kinds of thermal energy networks can be one part of the solution. Known as electrification’s best friend, these systems can help to balance electric loads and shave peaks year-round. Thermal networks are a great complement to other renewable resources and are close to net zero when paired with solar.
Join us to learn more about thermal networks as an electrification strategy and get a preview of a new case study on Colorado Mesa University’s 12-year-old system that has never once used its gas backup. Speakers will identify key opportunities, IRA incentives, and the kinds of businesses needed to help Vermont take advantage of the many benefits of thermal energy networks.
Time & Location: April 4th at noon via Zoom
