Richard Heinberg: Our Renewable Future
June 11, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
The JP Forum is thrilled to welcome back Richard Heinberg, one of the world’s foremost experts on energy policy and community resilience. Join us for this special morning with Richard and members of the New England Resilience & Transition Network.
Richard Heinberg is Senior Fellow-in-Residence of the Post Carbon Institute and is widely regarded as one of the world’s foremost educators on peak oil, energy policy and community resilience. At the Forum, Richard will explore the opportunities and challenges in the transition to a fossil fuel free future. Several energy analysts and environmental organizations have formulated plans for transitioning to 100 percent renewable energy. Richard Heinberg and David Fridley, staff scientist of the energy analysis program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, have gathered and assessed those plans, and in his talk Richard will discuss the future of clean energy and how the characteristics of ~100% renewable energy will shape our lives and economy.
Richard’s new book, Our Renewable Future, will be available for purchase. Check out a short summary of Our Renewable Future here on YES! magazine.
Two members of the New England Resilience & Transition network will offer responses to Richard’s talk.
