Event Description

The development of hemp-based energy storage will play a vital role in facilitating the graceful transition from the fossil fuel and extractive economy to a regenerative, relocalized, resilient, and life-affirming economy with distributed, decentralized, and democratic renewable-energy systems. This presentation shows how a regeneratively farmed plant, hemp, is the foundation for a new class of energy storage technology emerging in academia and industry, and what may one day power our grids, homes and communities.

Please join us for a discussion around regenerative hemp farming in the Northeast.
