September 29th, 2016
Mark Z. Jacobson, Director of the Atmosphere/Energy Program and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University
Moderator, Irene Boland Nielson, Climate Change Coordinator, EPA Region 2
Discussed how communities and cities can help significantly to transform the energy infrastructure of the 50 United States to 100% wind, water, and solar power for all purposes. Included proven and simulated methods that many people are not aware of to help accomplish this goal:
- Methods that include community-scale underground heat storage;
- Benefits of installing large scale offshore wind turbines: year round electricity, cost effectiveness, and resilience from extreme weather events;
- Cost, reliability, and feasibility factors.
