Webinar to Explore the North American Clean Energy Landscape
HARTFORD, CT — Learn about the clean energy landscape in North America, including renewables, offsets, onsite generation, and carbon footprinting by attending a Webinar presented by the International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP) on Tuesday, August 5, at 2 pm ET/11 am PT.
The discussion will be led by Amy Haddon, who is the Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Renewable Choice Energy, a leading renewable energy and climate change solutions provider based in Boulder, CO.
Clean energy generation, transmission, and use comprise one of the most important topics of our time. Our demand for electricity only continues to grow, while at the same time, carbon emissions have reached historic highs. Renewable energy and emission reductions play a critical role in the mitigation of climate change, while simultaneously increasing reliance on domestic energy production, creating jobs, and reducing air pollution. However, renewables and the role they play in the energy matrix are commonly misunderstood.
Energy generation and consumption and emissions management are at the forefront of many organizations' sustainability strategies. Understanding this landscape is valuable for sustainability practitioners. Voluntary, corporate purchasers of renewable energy are driving the clean energy marketplace. Collectively, these purchasers use billions of kilowatt-hours of green power annually, and some of the largest companies in the world are driving the rapid advancement of the clean energy landscape. As a result, for the first time in North America, renewables are in a position to reach grid-parity with traditional fossil fuel-generated electricity within the next decade, or sooner.
Participants of this Webinar will learn the relationship between clean energy generation and consumption and will receive an overview of the various mechanisms and technologies currently deployed in the U.S. and Canada to generate clean power. The Webinar will include a review of the recent acceleration of renewable development, new options for renewable adoption, and clarification on the link between emissions and offsets. Participants will leave the Webinar equipped with greater understanding of North American clean energy and equipped to take part in broader energy conversations as a result.
