Regional Climate Change Impacts: Hawaii and the Pacific Islands

This webinar is offered on multiple dates. It is part of the Department of Energy (DOE) Minorities in Energy Initiative (MIE), a platform created to increase engagement of minority and tribal communities in the broader energy sector, with a focus on minority-owned businesses and workers. MIE initiatives focus on the three primary goal areas of STEM education and workforce development, energy economic development, and climate change. As part of the climate change goal, DOE is hosting eight Regional Climate Change Impact Webinars as part of the MIE initiative.

Experts will provide findings from the Quadrennial Energy Review (QER) and outline federal energy policy objectives, proposals, and actions as they relate to climate change and resilience for underserved communities. An expert on energy and climate change job strategies will discuss job opportunities and regional options for renewables and energy efficiency. Authors of the National Climate Assessment will discuss their findings and the regional applicability to those communities who are disproportionally impacted by the effects of climate change.
