The Path to an Energy Efficient, Electric Future
with Amory Lovins
on Sustainability Now! Sunday, January 21st, 2024, 5-6 PM
Energy has been with us for a long time and, over the past 100 years, fossil fuels have been cheap and plentiful. Now we are going to have to pay the piper if we want to limit the future impacts of climate change. How could that happen. Tune in to hear Amory Lovins, cofounder of the Rocky Mountain Institute and long time energy policy analyst and advisor to many utilities, regulators and businesses. Almost 50 years ago, Lovins published a groundbreaking article in the journal, Foreign Affairs, entitled “Energy Strategy: The Road not Taken,” which recommended a renewable-based strategy over one based on oil, coal and nuclear power. Surely, but slowly, that vision is being realized, albeit in a much more complicated and conflicted fashion. Amory will talk about efficient energy use, integrative design, renewable supply (including grid integration), and long-term energy needs and paths to getting to an electrified future.
