Clean Energy Strategies for Urban Resilience

Follow the link to access this presentation about Clean Energy Strategies for Urban Resilience – a good overview in a nutshell.

Journaling my PhD

The presentation I gave as part of a panel on Adaptation Strategies for Climate Change at the Municipal and Regional-scale at the Climate Resilience and Adaptation Symposium became my first public presentation in America. It makes me happy, while I do realize I could have prepared a little more.

While drawing on my work as an intern at NREL, yet not relating to the organization itself, the presentation discusses the synergies that can be achieved by considering sustainability as a process to resilience, rather an a be-all and end-all proposition. At every stage of the emergency management phases as outlined by FEMA, clean energy strategies have the potential to add value imparting greater advantage than singularly focused efforts.
