Solar Technical Assistance Team Webinars
NREL's Solar Technical Assistance Team (STAT), with support from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative, presents multiple webinars each year that are targeted to state and local policymakers.
STAT hosted a Solar 101 series throughout 2012 to provide an overview of policy and program actions that stakeholders can implement to support solar markets. In fiscal year 2013, the STAT webinar series featured five events focused on Solar Hot Topics, including an overview of solar technologies, resources, and the role that state and local governments play in supporting the development of those resources.
