WBNR: November 30th, 2016 (12:00 – 1:30pm):
Learn about successful projects that contributed to over 320 buildings being audited or retrofitted, moved more than 580 MW of renewable energy projects toward development, assessed the potential for more than 4,000 MW of renewable energy generation, and trained more than 170 tribal members on energy topics.
If you’ve been struggling to find funding for energy efficiency projects in your buildings, then this session is the one for you. In this webinar, we will (1) demo the Efficiency Financing Navigator, a new tool to help you find financing that’s right for you; (2) show you how to access incentives and tax credits using DSIRE and other resources; and (3) give you practical advice about where to start and how to look out for pitfalls when finding financing.

Through a discussion of the upcoming Facts and Figures Report, participants in this webinar will hear about the updated Advancing Sustainable Materials Management: Facts and Figures 2014 report. Previously called the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Characterization Report, this report provides national solid waste generation, recycling, composting, combustion with energy recovery and landfilling numbers. The new report also includes data on construction and demolition debris generation and economic analysis.

Students who attend the NCSE 2017 Conference will have opportunities to lead, learn, network, and engage throughout the conference:
-Meet and network with current leaders in health and the environment during a mentoring lunch
-Attend a Student Network Leadership Meeting to share ideas and best practices for sustainability programs on campus
-Present a research poster
-Attend student-focused and student-driven sessions throughout the conference
-Register for a career development panel to hear advice on how to grow as a leader and young professional exploring career pathways in science and the environment
