Energy Workshop OverviewThis workshop will be held entirely online. There is no face-to-face component and no travel is necessary.
The workshop will consist of synchronous presentations, asynchronous discussions, independent work time and small group collaboration. See the workshop program for the schedule of sessions. Each of the synchronous sessions will be recorded, so in the event that you are not able to attend a session, you will be able to review the presentations via the workshop website.
We will use Elluminate web conference software, SERC's web collaboration tools and conference call lines in order to create a well-rounded experience. Learn more about the technical aspects of this online workshop.
