GREENING AN AMERICAN CITY:
THE PROCESS, TECHNOLOGIES & LESSONS LEARNED
Presented by: Gerry Braun, Integrated Resources Network
What if the cheapest place to make electricity were on a building, in a neighborhood, in a city, or right outside of a city? What if the cheapest place to store locally produced electricity were in an electric vehicle battery? Technology and cost trends point in this direction. But the response varies greatly from city to city, even in the same state.
For example, citizens and businesses of Davis, California have been buying and leasing solar equipment, electric vehicles and adopting energy efficiency measures much faster than counter-parts in other California cities. There is no single, simple, obvious reason. Understanding the effects and interplay of multiple, important factors at work might be valuable to other cities, both in California and other states, that aspire to decarbonize and become more energy resilient.
In the May 30, 2018 municipal sustainability and energy webinar, Gerald Braun, an energy industry veteran and Davis resident, will offer his perspective on the roles, capacities and “intangibles” that have and will likely shape his city’s energy profile and energy future.
Topics covered include:
– The arguments that convinced Davis to be on the forefront of sustainable energy.
– The drivers of these changes and how the decision makers were reached
– Renewable energy policies, processes and technologies adopted by Davis.
– Energy efficiency policies, processes and technologies adopted by Davis.
– Involvement and benefits to businesses and citizens.
– Benefits to the Davis and its economy
– Lessons Learned
