TTC Helps U.S. DOE Educate Hundreds of Local Leaders Nationwide
More than 1,000 people from a wide spectrum of industries attended the latest webinar on hydrogen and fuel cells, hosted by Technology Transition Corporation. The webinar was the fourth in a series, intended to provide basic hydrogen fuel cell education to "local leaders," funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.
At the most recent webinar, entitled "Go Local: Maximizing Your Local Renewable Resources With Fuel Cells," attendees listened to presentations from the directors of a public works department and a transit system, as well as a public information officer for a county water agency. Presenters described the planning involved in their projects, challenges they faced, and lessons learned.
Three other webinars in the series have focused on local legislation that has helped hydrogen and fuel cell projects thrive, highlighted job growth in the hydrogen and fuel cell sector, and discussed the top five U.S. states for hydrogen and fuel cell initiatives. The webinars have reached over 2,000 representatives from a variety of business sectors, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions. More than 25% of the attendees described themselves as local leaders: officials at the state level or below (e.g., fire chiefs, building planners, council members, etc.).
