There's still time to register for the Urban Land Institute Alternative Energy Symposium to be held on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 from 8:00 am to 10:30 am at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.
By 2050, one-third of the world’s energy will need to come from solar, wind and other renewable resources. Climate change,
population growth and fossil fuel depletion mean that renewables will need to play a bigger role in the future than they do today. What can we do today to secure our future?
ULI's panel of experts will discuss alternative energies (wind, solar, geothermal, electric vehicles), their advantages, the economical and practical issues surrounding them and how all of these factor into the land use and development disciplines. Our panel includes: Richard S. Dovey, President, Atlantic County Utilities Authority; Peter Fontaine, Esquire, Cozen O’Connor; Benjamin Parvey, II, Blue Sky Power LLC; and Lynn Stiles, Professor of Physics and Coordinator of the Energy Studies/Geothermal Project at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. Panel moderator is Brad A. Molotsky, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Brandywine Realty Trust.
After the discussion, optional tours will be available. The Stockton campus serves as a model for fuel cells, photovoltaic solar electric and advanced aquifer thermal energy storage systems. The geothermal heat pump project serves as a national model. Professor Lynn Stiles will lead a tour of the geothermal facilities and Alice Gitchell, Energy Specialist, Office of Planning and Construction, will lead a tour of solar installations for those interested.
