Sustainable energy is a fast paced and quickly evolving area of policy and technology. Our Sustainable Energy Lecture Series engages students in the world of practice to build their awareness of the multiple stakeholders and policy concerns involved in transitioning our societies away from fossil fuels. Each year experts and leaders working in this area are invited to present to our students, faculty and broader community. These lectures are an essential part of the program and give our students a leg up in understanding the challenges and opportunities of sustainability transitions.
