SEAS Seminars: Sustainable Energy and Atmospheric Sciences

Hosted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory

A monthly seminar series designed to enhance communication and collaboration among scientists at NREL, NOAA ESRL, and others in the community working on issues related to renewable energy. Key meteorological questions must be answered to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy in the U.S. This series brings together those who can combine their knowledge and expertise to solve the problems that have slowed the integration of renewable energy sources into the U.S. electric grid. Scientists at the University of Colorado, School of Mines, Colorado State University, the National Center for Atmospheric Research and private industry are encouraged to participate. The location will alternate between NOAA in Boulder and NREL in Golden, as will the affiliation of the speakers.

Recordings of past talks and presentation slides are available in the SEAS Seminar Archive.

Next Seminar: TBA
