While teaching in New Zealand in July-August 2015, Eric delivered a public lecture on urban futures and gave a radio interview on China and climate.
Renewable Energy Urban Futures – A Global Update
An update on global trends with renewable energy markets, investments and business models, and some updated cases of how cities and communities are applying renewable energy profitably and in service to local goals. Many community, peer-to-peer and household-based business models are emerging strongly, including integration with heat supply (and district energy), air conditioning, flexible “demand response”, time-of-use pricing and electric vehicle charging. Lots of good audience questions followed the talk.
