Community and city-scale options for transforming energy

Community- and city-scale options for transforming energy to 100% wind, water, and solar

Workshop Facilitator: Mark Z. Jacobson, Director, Atmosphere/Energy Program, Stanford University

Summary:
Communities and cities can help significantly to transform the energy infrastructure of the 50 United States to 100% wind, water, and solar power for all purposes. This interactive workshop will discuss some proven and some simulated methods that many people are not aware of to help accomplish this goal. The proven methods include community-scale underground heat storage in soil and community or city-scale heat exchanging combined with WWS electricity. The simulated method includes installing large arrays of offshore wind turbines to generate electricity year-round (thus paying for themselves) while simultaneously reducing hurricane and severe weather impacts at no additional cost. These topics were discussed in light of their cost, reliability, and feasibility. Additional methods of changing energy at the local and regional scale were also be discussed.
