RHEA JEZER, PhD., SYMPOSIUM DIRECTOR (View Biography)
Welcome to the Nineteenth Annual Symposium on Energy in the 21st Century.
Last year’s symposium was a resounding success. We were delighted that we are able to gather to celebrate and look forward to the future. We limited the number present to 150 attendees, but were able to share the day with double that number of attendees online. Those in person social distanced and masked, but were extremely happy to network another. Our extraordinary speakers gave us hope that we can do our part slowing down the devastating effects of climate change. Our speakers were top nationally known policy makers, scientists and professionals doing the cutting edge work, and they shared with us their perspectives and vision for the future. You can listen to the Symposium on the link on this page.
Our world seems to be moving at a staggering pace despite being slowed down by a pandemic. When we met nineteen years ago solar panels were an oddity, now we have not only personal property solar but entire solar farms providing communities with power. Nineteen years ago solar farms were still questioned, and now we are planning for massive offshore wind farms, catching up with other countries. Using hydro, geothermal, hydrogen, biofuel and other sources still being explored might seem unrealistic to some, but in ten years these and other sources of clean energy will be the norm. The grid is being prepared and labor is being trained.
