Otherlab, an independent research & design lab pairing creativity with rigor to bring new solutions in renewable energy and robotics to market.
COO - MCE, a not-for-profit, public agency that offers cleaner power at stable rates to more than one million residents and businesses across four Bay Area counties.
Now it’s official: the past six years have been the hottest in human history.
The term “decarbonization” is new to most of us, but if we’re going to keep this planet habitable, we all need to learn what it is, how it works, and what we can do to support it. And we need to tackle the biggest issue first by decarbonizing energy — electricity, heat and transport — because it accounts for 73.2% of carbon emissions. Come hear inspiring MacArthur “Genius” grant recipient and serial entrepreneur Saul Griffith explain the concepts, practices, and political challenges of taking carbon out of our energy resources, and Vicken Kasarjian of MCE relate that vision back to what we are doing now in Marin County. #decarbonization
As renewable energy sources become less expensive and undercut the price of fossil fuels, the US will need to move quickly to take a lead in these new technologies or it will risk losing its position as the leading world power.
