Renewable Energy for Resilient Communities

Posted By admin On September 5, 2013 @ 10:00 am In Chelsea Green News,Renewable Energy | Comments Disabled

How can we successfully bring our neighbors together and relocalize our food, energy, and financial systems?

To glean some of the best ideas percolating throughout the United States, and the world, sign up for the Community Resilience Chats—a webinar series that delves into details essential for communities that are ready to take the necessary steps to reclaim their future. These online discussions stem from The Community Resilience Guides [1] co-published by Post Carbon Institute and Chelsea Green.

These online chats are co-produced by Chelsea Green, Transition US [2], and Post Carbon Institute [3].

In the next chat — Power from the People — community clean power visionaries, Lynn Benander of Co-op Power [4] and Lyle Estill of Piedmont Biofuels [5] will share their experiences in moving away from big energy. Join the conversation:

Community Resilience Chat: Power from the People – Webinar [6]
September 10, 2013 at 2:00pm (EST)

The webinar is free, but space is limited so don’t wait to sign up [7]. Participants will receive an exclusive 35% discount on Greg Pahl’s Power from the People. There will be a presentation and time for Q&A, but send in your burning questions on community clean power in advance to help shape the conversation.

If you missed the first Community Resilience Chat: Rebuilding the Foodshed [8] with Philip Ackerman-Leist, you can watch it here [9]:

 Next up on Community Resilience Chats: Local Dollars, Local Sense [10]. Michael Shuman’s perspective sheds light on rebooting the economy to meet the needs of investors and entrepreneurs for a healthy and secure local economy.

Want to learn more about these books and how to make your community more self-reliant? Chelsea Green is offering  The Community Resilience Guides [1] series as a special book set to make sure you and your neighbors have the tools and strategies you need to become more resilient.
