Knowledge Exchange: Powering Tomorrow

This session will showcase a perspective on global warming’s impact on the environment and projected future ramifications. This backdrop will set the stage for the remainder of the discussion, focusing on renewable energy solutions for “powering tomorrow”: what are the promising up-and-coming technologies?, how are they being adopted?, what are the barriers to adoption?, and success stories about the use of alternative energy in providing power to cities and counties around the world.
