The online conversation Toward a Renewable Energy Transition in Appalachia, part of the 2nd Energy Transition Colloquium, will explore ways to leverage on renewables to facilitate the energy transition in Appalachia. 

The speakers will answer the following crucial questions for the future of our energy system: 

  • What are the key obstacles and opportunities right now in advancing renewable energy transition (in Appalachia or in general) 
  • How or why is renewable energy transition a social and environmental justice issue? 
  • What kinds of research do we need to advance a just renewable energy transition? How can we more effectively increase public participation in research / science / policy for renewable energy transition?
