Local Students, Local Energy Solutions
Webinar. October 7th, 11am.
Students at Hanover High School have developed a climate action plan: a roadmap for how to reduce their school's admissions greenhouse gas emissions by 77 percent by 2050.
This was a student-led initiative, and is the first of its kind for a high school in the entire United States. In this session, the students and their advisors will discuss how the plan was imagined and brought to fruition, and how it continues to evolve today. Attendees will come away with practical lessons for how to replicate Hanover's success at their own school.
Attendance to this session and virtual attendance to the entire Local Energy Solutions conference is free to current High School Students.
Elizabeth Wilson of the Irving Institute for Energy and Society
Dr. Elizabeth J. Wilson is a Professor of Environmental Studies and the inaugural Director of the Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society. She studies how energy systems are changing in the face of new technologies and new societal pressures. Her work focuses on the implementation of energy and environmental policies and laws in practice. She studies how institutions support and thwart energy system transitions and focuses on the interplays between technology innovation, policy creation, and institutional decision making. Recent research has examined how energy policy stakeholders view the opportunities and challenges of creating smart grids and decision making within Regional Transmission Organizations, which manage the transmission planning, electricity markets and grid operations of over 70 percent of North America. Her research has also examined how stakeholders in different U.S. states view emerging energy technologies like wind power and carbon-capture and sequestration and the electric power transmission system. Her recent books include Energy Law and Policy and Smart Grid (R)evolution: Electric Power Struggles. Wilson's research group is working on two NSF supported grants on media and stakeholder perceptions of Smart Grid technologies and on decision making in Regional Transmission Organizations.
