The Office of Environmental Sustainability will be hosting Greg Pahl on April 8th at 7:30 in the Earth Science Building 147 at the Uptown Campus of SUNY. Greg will be discussing his book Power from the People. Here is an overview on his presentation:
Greg describes the big picture view of local energy sustainability from a 21st century perspective. He offers suggestions and examples of what individuals, farmers, institutions, non-profits, and communities can do to make themselves more energy resilient and otherwise curb their carbon footprint. The strategies and case studies are based on current, available technology (rather than wishful thinking) with a strong emphasis on collaborative community initiatives based on local ownership. Q&A will follow the presentation.
