Renewable energy is a big topic these days – and it will undoubtedly become a bigger topic as we move further into the 21st century. It’s not just that we want to develop more efficient and environmentally friendly energy solutions, it’s that we must. Our future and the future of our planet depend on it.
Episode 1: Renewable Energy Procurement Trends
Guests: Kyle Harrison (senior associate, corporate sustainability at Bloomberg NEF) & Chris Fallon (vice president at Duke Energy Renewables)
When considering both the future of the planet and the future of both industry and human thriving worldwide, the renewable energy outlook is of paramount importance. Renewable energy is of vital concern simply because cultures worldwide consume energy as part of everyday life.
Episode 2: Trends in EV Charging and Electrification
Guests: Rob Threlkeld (global manager – sustainable energy, supply & reliability at General Motors) & Craig Noxon (vice president of enterprise sales at REC Solar)
Naturally, as any consumer technology becomes available to the public, the supporting infrastructure has to be developed right alongside. That’s the only way it can become widely accepted. But it’s not as easy as “just doing it.” There are many obstacles, financial hurdles, and unforeseen difficulties that have to be overcome. This conversation dives into what’s happening behind the scenes in the electric vehicle industry to deploy EV charging infrastructure across the nation.
Episode 3: Renewable Energy Sourcing In Higher Education
Guests: Wolfgang Bauer (associate vice president at Michigan State University) & Scott Therian (project development manager at REC Solar)
The use of renewable energy is becoming more and more common on campuses of higher education across the country – and it’s not surprising. Institutions of higher education are both massive consumers of energy and are in the business of learning and teaching. That combination makes them ideal laboratories for innovation and advancement in the field.
