A dangerously hot summer shows we need to act quickly on climate change. If Humboldt County residents are to eliminate climate-changing fossil fuels from our energy mix, we’ll need more renewable energy for our homes and businesses. Where will that come from?
To answer that question, 350 Humboldt presents “Exploring Renewable Energy Futures in Humboldt County,” on Monday, August 9, at 7:00 p.m, on Zoom. In this presentation local energy researcher Amin Younes looks at how we can develop renewable electricity in Humboldt over the coming decade. He’ll examine costs, benefits, and community perceptions. He’ll look at offshore wind, solar, and biomass possibilities, reviewing CO2 emissions, job creation, and more.
Amin is a fellow at the Schatz Energy Research Center where he studies Humboldt’s offshore wind resource, options to improve our connection to the statewide grid, and other local energy issues. He is a former member of the Redwood Coast Energy Authority’s Community Advisory Committee and graduated from Humboldt State University’s Energy Technology and Policy graduate program.
