Join WBUR on June 4 at 6:30pm in the WBUR CitySpace at the Lavine Broadcast Center at Boston University at (890 Commonwealth Ave., Boston) for their expert panel on ‘Energy Transitions’.
We cannot confront climate change without wholesale changes in our sources of energy. What companies are leading the transition to fossil-fuel-free energy, what barriers are they facing, and how are they tackling those barriers? How are traditional electric utilities shifting their business strategies to accommodate and promote new, cleaner sources of energy? And how are new entrants to this old sector disrupting the electricity industry with clean energy innovations?
