Hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy, this annual Program Review is a tremendous opportunity for Indian tribes to meet, share information, and learn from other Indian tribes that are pursuing energy sufficiency through energy efficiency and/or renewable energy development, and to share in each other's successes.
The 2016 Program Review will feature project status updates from tribes across the nation that are leveraging Office of Indian Energy grant funding to deploy energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and those entities developing an inter-tribal technical assistance energy network.
There is no cost to register; however, advance registration is requested to ensure sufficient seating and food availability. Travel and per diem are the individual's responsibility.

The Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) seminar is designed for those in the renewable energy industry who are new to PPAs or who have worked with PPAs and are ready to gain a deeper understanding of the legal impact of and allocation of risks under key PPA provisions. The course divides PPA issues into those that play out during the pre-commercial operation period, those related to the actual achievement of commercial operation, and those that arise in the post-commercial operation period. Key topics covered during the seminar include:
- Review the basics of project finance, PPA contract terms, and the PPA bidding process
- Assess sample PPA language
- Discuss methods and practices for successful negotiations
- Analyze issues that arise during operations and how to allocate legal risk
- Discuss government incentives for solar PPAs and review utility-scale projects
- Review other renewables such as biomass, biofuels and wind, and programs utilizing these technologies.
