9-10 AM: How to Decarbonize Oregon’s Energy

April 7, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Event passed; see the recording here or a pdf of the slides here.

In addition to our coronavirus challenges, we don’t have much time to achieve dramatic GHG emission reductions.

This webinar summarizes past climate policy actions at the Oregon state level and proposes new policy options in the energy sectors that are effective and affordable. States need comprehensive, long-term, sector-specific emission plans and strategies that achieve the IPCC requirements. The physical requirements are relatively simple, and the cost trajectories of clean energy technologies imply more savings every year. States need to analyze which policies are working and which are not working. There are huge opportunities to sell the co-benefits of decarbonization to heal the urban-rural divide and catalyze economic advantages for businesses. Expect a barrage of ideas and data, followed by robust Q&A!

Eric Strid is a retired high-tech entrepreneur and CEO, now working for our children on climate policy. Eric is a co-convener of the Columbia Gorge Climate Action Network, writes The Strid Energy Report, and serves on the Hood River County Energy Council and the boards of npArbor, Inc. and the Green Energy Institute.
