Reducing ASU’s Carbon
The Renewable Energy Initiative (REI) will host its Fall Forum Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 8:30 to 10 p.m. in Room 114 of Appalachian State University’s Belk Library.
The focus for the forum is climate change: What is it? Why do we care? What's being done about it on a state and national public policy level? What's being done about it within the university?
Speakers will discuss the commitments the university has made to reduce GHG emissions in its Climate Action Plan, where the university actually stand in reducing emissions, and the REI's attempt to build larger renewable energy systems to make a bigger dent in the university's carbon footprint.
The event will start with a presentation of a large photovoltaic (PV) array project, which the REI is helping to plan, along with information about how to get involved with the REI.
There will be two short videos, “The Story of Cap and Trade” and “The Story of Change.” A panel of experts will present some information about the state of carbon reduction efforts on campus and on a state and national level, and then open the floor up for a general discussion.
North Carolina and university leaders are being invited to attend.
