How can we meet and manage growing energy demands while protecting the planet’s health—and ours? What role can renewable energy—which, in 2011, accounted for only about 9 percent of all energy used in the United States—play in meeting that demand? What is the future of energy?

Join moderator Anthony Brooks, co-host of WBUR’s Radio Boston, and renewable-energy thought leaders for this important community conversation at The Future of Energy, the second event in the Future of Nature lecture series that The Nature Conservancy is co-sponsoring with WBUR, Boston’s NPR news station, this spring.

Panelists:

Daniel Kammen, professor and director, Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory, UC Berkeley

Jigar Shah, partner, Inerjys clean-energy investment firm, founder SunEdison solar services company

Joe Farigone, science director, The Nature Conservancy
