Interested in the future of renewable energy? Do you think there should be a carbon price? What can we do to improve our energy use? These and many other questions will be answered in the coming weeks at multiple university public seminars, including Boston University's Institute for Sustainable Energy’s Spring 2017 public Seminar Series starting March 20 and going until late April. Come to these events and learn about the many aspects and issues of transitioning into a economically and socially sustainable future.
Come to Boston on March 20 for “Energy Storage Economics: The Impact on Renewables & Climate,” to learn about modern energy storage, feasibility, and applications. On April 3rd there will be “Pricing Climate Risk,” a discussion on carbon prices and taxes; on April 13, “Hurry or Wait: Pacing the Roll-out of Renewable Energy in the face of Climate Change“; and on April 24, BU will hold “US State & Local Policies: Key Catalysts to Renewable Electricity’s Ascent” to go over the ins and outs of environmentally sustainable policy.
These events are free and open to the public. They feature specialists in economics, engineering, business, law, and multiple authors including Brett Perlman and Gernot Wagner.
