This special seminar series, supported by UVM’s Clean Energy Fund, features top-level thinkers engaged in identifying best practices for implementing renewable energy. Energy has major environmental impacts, both in how we use it and how we extract it, contributing, for example, from 30 to 40 percent of our total greenhouse gases. Renewable energy resources can sharply lower these impacts, yet increasing the share of renewable energy is a challenge. Speakers working at the forefront of these issues will lead discussions on solar, wind, biomass, hydro and other renewable energy technologies and associated public policies. We expect to generate lively conversations with our invited speakers as we explore how to build a more sustainable and renewable energy system.
