Event Description

Sustainability Forum Luncheon: Energy, Democracy, Gender and Equity in the Renewable Energy Transition
May 3 | 11:30-1pm
100 Cummings Center, Suite 221-E Beverly MA 01915

Join the North Shore Technology Council for lunch on May 3rd and discuss various topics around social movement and energy policies. Energy democracy is a novel concept and emergent social movement that connects energy policy and social policy in response to growing concerns about socio-economic and racial inequities, the powerful influence of conventional fossil fuel energy companies on politics and policy, and the negative impacts of climate change. A gender imbalance in the energy sector is apparent in countries throughout the world, yet the societal value of more diverse and inclusive participation in the renewable energy transition is not widely acknowledged. This presentation highlights the opportunities for re-envisioning the renewable energy transition as a larger social transformation that redistributes power literally and figuratively.

Online registration closes the day before this event at noon.

While walk-ins are always welcomed, advance registration helps the Council in planning. The charge for all walkins is $15.
