America has seen a rising number of natural disasters — and more are on the way. Most recently a recent winter storm in the southern United States resulted in cascading failures that left millions without electricity and clean water. Should we be ready for more of these events across the country in the future? In the wake of the storm, some falsely blamed wind turbines, but can clean and distributed energy actually help prevent the next crisis?
Join the Resource Security program and Converge Strategies on Wednesday, March 17th from 12pm – 1pm for a discussion about what happened in Texas and how renewables and clean energy present an opportunity to build a more resilient Texas energy grid.
