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.
Download the flyer and share it; post it.

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.
The SECRES solar S’Mores have become a traditional at the annual Cool Science Festival in Colorado Springs. This year low clouds impacted the oven temperature for the first hour, but the sky cleared and demand outpaced supply despite a mad dash to the grocery store.
This event brings thousands of kids and their parents out to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It provides a great opportunity to talk to young people about the benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy.
This year SECRES was joined by volunteers for the Colorado Springs Chapter of 350.org.
