EPA Offers Green House Gas Inventory Training

November 6, 2007
National Webcast
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is offering a series of free webcasts designed for local, regional, and state governments to learn the basics of conducting a greenhouse gas inventory. Three webcasts are planned for this series.

Creating an Inventory
October 11, 2007, 2:00 – 3:30 PM (Eastern Time)
Topics will include understanding the purpose and scope of a GHG inventory, setting a baseline, quantification approaches, certification and reporting protocols, comparability, and level of effort.
Translating Inventory Results into Action
November 6, 2007, 2-3:30pm EST
Topics will include describing the various uses of GHG Inventories including benchmarking, tracking progress over time, major source identification, target setting, exploring mitigation options, and action planning.
State Inventory Tool (SIT) Training Session
TBA, 2007
EPA’s State Inventory Tool is an interactive Excel-based suite of tools that assists with the development of a state-level greenhouse gas emission inventory. This detailed training for the SIT modules includes implementation of state data to assess GHG emissions by source and sector.
To register for the sessions, e-mail: Inventory101@icfi.com. Priority for registration will be given to local, regional, and state government staff and officials. If multiple staff from your agency wish to participate, we ask that you share a computer and phone line. EPA plans to record and post these webcasts on its Clean Energy website.
