Power Lunch Lecture Series - Renewable Energy Futures to 2050: Current Perspectives
March 14, 2013, 12:00 - 1:00 pm
- Golden, CO - Visitors Center
- Contact: Visitors Center 303-384-6565
Presented by Dr. Eric Martinot, Author, REN21 Renewables Global Futures Report
The future of renewable energy is fundamentally a choice, not a foregone conclusion given technology and economic trends. The new REN21 Renewables Global Futures Report illuminates that choice by showing the range of credible possibilities for the future of renewable energy. The report is not one scenario or viewpoint, but a synthesis of the contemporary thinking of many, as compiled from 170 interviews with leading experts from around the world, including CEOs and parliamentarians, and from 50 recently published energy scenarios by a range of organizations.
Dr. Eric Martinot is an internationally recognized scholar, writer, and teacher on the subject of renewable energy. He is report author of the just-released REN21 Renewables Global Futures Report, and was lead author until 2010 of the REN21 Renewables Global Status Report, an annual synthesis that he first created in 2005. He currently serves as senior research director with the Institute for Sustainable Energy Policies in Tokyo and teaching fellow with Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.
