Join us for this presentation to understand the many complicated terms associated with energy and address questions like why is energy important, how we measure it, and how much we use. We have heard the term sustainability discussed conceptually-but what does it really mean in practice? We will go over a real-life sustainability project and highlight its successes. Finally, the presentation will review renewable energy, progress we have made “going green” and the politics behind moving from fossil fuels to renewable sources.
