At this event, Green Energy Revolution, we will show a film and have a discussion afterwards. The film is titled “Earth: The Sequel, A Race to reinvent the future of energy”. It’s described as a straightforward look at the green energy revolution taking place all around us.
Light refreshments will be served.

Transmission projects are starting to pick up. For renewable energy (RE), transmission has two big benefits. It allows RE producing regions, like the wind energy in the central US, to be connected to population centers. In addition, it allows geographic diversity to help smooth the intermittent RE generation.
This NYTimes article describes the progress of a number of major transmission projects.
