Tuesday, Mar 24, 2009

Today, New York gets nearly all of its electricity from power plants that burn coal, natural gas, or oil.

Ashok Gupta, Air & Energy Program Director for the Natural Resources Defense Council, will moderate a discussion on practical near-term opportunities and barriers associated with the deployment of solar, wind, and nuclear technologies with Greg Kiss, Founding Partner, Kiss + Cathcart Architects; Peter Mandelstam, Founder and President, Bluewater Wind; and Gil Brown, professor and coordinator of the Nuclear Engineering Program at the University of Massachusetts. Presented in conjunction with Growing and Greening New York: PlaNYC and the Future of the City.
