Sustainable Energy Speaker Series

The Sustainable Energy Speaker Series was created to deepen campus and community understanding of contemporary energy issues and spur conversation around energy topics. The series is a joint effort of the Appalachian Energy Center and the Department of Sustainable Technology and the Built Environment.

Energy is fundamental to modern life, requires immensely complex social, technological and economic systems and, therefore, poses many intriguing questions - how we harness and prioritize its use, how we transition to cleaner sources, how we weigh economic and environmental impacts and so on. Our aim with this series is to give students, faculty, staff, and the community a chance to learn, engage, connect, collaborate, and gain new perspectives on energy issues.

Our speaker series this spring will showcase women working in the clean energy industry.
