Subject: Renewable Energy talks in Amherst
Two public talks on renewable energy may be of interest to STEM educators:
LIGHTING OUR FUTURE
Many of us want renewable energy, but how do we get there from here?
What infrastructure will be required and how will it be paid for?
Solutions are not easy and hard choices will have to be made.
The Amherst League of Women Voters is sponsoring two public talks
to explore how we move towards renewable sources for electricity
generation in Massachusetts:
Tuesday, November 29, 7 - 8:30 PM, Woodbury Room, Jones Library
Keeping the Lights On: What is our Energy Future?
Anne C. George, Vice President, ISO New England
ISO New England is charged with maintaining and operating the
electric grid system in the 6-state New England region. The talk
will describe the mix of energy sources that provide our electricity
24 hours a day and what will be needed to transition to more
relance on renewable energy.
The Future of Wind Energy in Massachusetts
Tuesday, December 6, 7 - 8:30 PM, Bangs Community Center, Amherst
James Manwell, UMass
Prof. Manwell researches advances in technology for wind energy
and is the Director of the UMass Wind Energy Center. He will discuss
the potential for wind energy in New England, particularly offshore wind
energy, and the technological developments that will make it possible.
