The U.S. Department of Energy will be celebrating Earth Week April 18-22 in the Forrestal Building and April 25-29 in Germantown.
Many of the program offices, including the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) will have displays, plus there will be activities such as environmental films, green bag lunches, speakers, nature walks and talks, tree plantings, Bring Sons and Daughters to Work Day activities, farmers marketand community days. The Earth Week activities are sure to be fun, and to see how the Department is “Changing Behavior to Reduce DOE’s Carbon Footprint.”
While you are enjoying the Earth Week displays and activities, be sure to stop by and see OSTI where we will feature DOE Green Energy, your portal to green energy information from thousands of DOE-sponsored research and development projects. DOE Green Energy provides free access to over 30,000 full text technical reports and over 2,000 patents.
You can read about some of the latest research in advanced vehicle technologies with these highlighted reports from DOE Green Energy: Clean Cities 2011 Vehicle Buyer's Guide; Natural gas vehicles: Status, barriers, and opportunities; NREL Showcases Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine Bus; RD&D Cooperation for the Development of Fuel Cell, Hybrid and Electric Vehicles within the International Energy Agency: Preprint; Hydrogen Filling Station (HFS).
OSTI and the DOE Green Energy portal make learning about various forms of green energy -- solar, wind, bioenergy, geothermal, hydro electric and many more – quick and easy. We look forward to seeing you!
