Webinar Series: Thriving in the Transition to a New Carbon Economy
August 30, 2019
August 30, 2019
This webinar series aims to propel the transition to a new carbon economy forward, one in which we are not focused on the past, but transitioning into a future that is beneficial for all. The new economy shifts away from a history of extraction and degradation, towards a future where we harness our lands to boost crop yields and improve soil heath, and rethink the way emissions are used. Improving both agricultural practices and energy autonomy are crucial to achieving low carbon resilience (LCR). In this future new industries create new jobs, opportunities, and prosperity.
Two workshops are being offered in September: Power to the People with MiniGrids: Innovative Technologies and Investment Strategies that are Bringing Solar Energy to Rural Communities (September 11, 1;15-2:45 EDT) and Towards a 20 GT Negative CO2 Emissions Industry (September 19, 1:15-2:45 EDT).
The first webinar on September 11, 2019, Power to the People with MiniGrids: Innovative Technologies and Investment Strategies that are Bringing Solar Energy to Rural Communities, explores innovations in financing off the grid energy solutions in remote villages that spark economic development, leading to sustainable rural energy markets.
