Negotiations 
Date: Monday March 20, 2017

Many people call addressing climate change an “all hands on deck” moment. And yet, there is ample research indicating a disturbing reality that women already know: there are rarely enough women at the negotiating table to begin with. Whether you are an engineer, scientist, city planner, academic or renewable energy company executive (to name but a few), this webinar is intended to help you positively impact the negotiations in your respective sphere of influence. Specifically, this presentation will sketch out strategies for getting women to the table and helping them to be more effective negotiators. Further, additional resources will be provided that participants can use on their own to deepen their understanding and familiarity with the concepts presented.

Presenter:
Mil Niepold - President, The Mara Partners

Interconnection 101
Date: January 10, 2017

Looking back at where we’ve come from as an industry - a brief overview of the history and landscape of the U.S. electric power grid will be provided, as well as an introduction to key landmark energy legislation that has opened up access to grid interconnection for independent power producers (such as wind and solar power plants). We’ll look at the basic steps necessary to connect a brand new wind power plant to the grid, and discuss challenges of the day with building and interconnecting wind power plants.
