The Point Lookout Energy Park, was featured in a US Department of Energy webinar.
The Community Renewable Energy Deployment (CommRE) “Renewable Energy Parks” webinar, from March 19, 2013, was presented by Tara Schneider from the Town of Hempstead Dept of Conservation and Waterways, which built and hosts the energy park.
The webinar explored the concept of energy parks as an outreach to the community, educational opportunity, and as a demonstration of what can be done.
The presentation talked about
- energy generation methods used
- energy storage methods used
- construction lessons learned
- and what they’re learning, not just from the renewable energy, but from bringing it all together, the process of that, and the practice as well
The other half of the webinar featured Bob Titus of the city of Ellensburg, Washington, who also have their own energy park including a small wind turbine test site.
Congratulations to this local project getting the recognition they deserve.
