Tackling poverty with community energy efforts

A moderated conversation between leading practitioners

Energy Futures

 

There are many people putting forward compelling ideas and visions for the future, and we have been craving a little time to step back and consider these fresh perspectives and how they can contribute to the clean energy future we’re building together.

During the second virtual gathering of CERTs' new Energy Futures on October 21, 2020, we explored how energy efficiency and renewable energy work that is community-led and place-based can lead to real change, and has in the Lincoln Park neighborhood in Duluth. We heard from Jodi Slick, Founder and CEO, Ecolibrium3Jacob Mans, Assistant Professor, University of Minnesota School of Architecture, College of Design; and Mauricio León, Senior Researcher, Metropolitan Council.
