Students can often help to facilitate communication between disciplines and across campus because students engaged in sustainability projects generally collaborate outside their major. This webinar will help educators and college staff to recognize how students can serve as bridges across disciplines to advance sustainability, learn how student projects and internships are used at colleges to develop and refine communication, and develop ideas on how to use these approaches at your own institution.
A study shows a transition to 100% clean, renewable energies is highly realistic – even today, with the technologies currently available.
Christian Breyer, Professor for Solar Economy at LUT University, Finland and Hans-Josef Fell, President of the Energy Watch Group, present on their latest joint publication, the study on Global Energy Systems based on 100% Renewable Energy.The study, published April 2019, is the first of its kind to outline a 1.5°C scenario with a cost-effective, cross-sectoral, technology-rich global 100% renewable energy system that does not build on negative CO2 emission technologies.
Webinar is available to members of The International Solar Energy Society (ISES).
Energy Efficiency Jobs in America 2019 shows the continued growth trajectory of energy efficiency. Now representing a workforce of more than 2.3 million Americans, efficiency has more jobs than any other energy sector. The report explores job distribution beyond the top ten states in detail.
