The Long Road to Renewable Energy
April 5, 11:30 AM
Hear from Matt Kearns, Colby Class of ’93, chief marketing officer with Longroad Energy. Over the last 10 years, large-scale wind and solar projects have been built across the U.S. to meet renewable energy goals set by states. In the past, utilities were the only customers for energy from these large scale projects. As the cost of renewable energy has come down, corporations are driving a new wave of investment in this sector. Companies like Walmart, 3M, Amazon Web Services, and others are adding increased growth in renewable energy project development. The talk will include an overview of Kearns’s experience as a renewable energy developer over the last decade and emerging trends in the renewable energy industry. Lunch is at 11:30 a.m. and the lecture begins at noon.
