The New German National Sustainable Energy Policy Implications of a Green Germany for California and the World

Friday, 4/26, 12pm-2pm, Orbach Science Library, Room 240

Rebecca Bertram, Climate Network Program Director of the Heinrich Boll Foundation, North America, will discuss the new German governmental policies, and practices, in their national effort to convert to sustainable energy. With the fifth largest economy in the world, Germany’s policies represent a game changing new approach. Germany’s plans are to be almost completely reliant on clean, renewable, sustainable energy sources by 2050. Implications for California will be discussed. Dialogue will follow on the meaning of the German model for California with Jim Stewart, Co-Chair, Sierra Club California Energy-Climate Committee, Kevin Barker, Senior Advisor to the Chair, California Energy Commission, Yassamin Kavezade of UCR CalPIRG and others.

Presentations noon to 1pm.
Panel and audience discussion 1pm to 2pm.

All are welcome. Light refreshments will be served.

Sponsored by the Librarians Association of the University of California, Riverside and the UCR Office of Sustainability, and UCR CalPIRG.
