Get Tickets Now! Thursday June 8th:
Please join Clean Energy Action and the CU Environmental Center in welcoming 

Author, entrepreneur, Stanford educator,  international thought leader on disruptive change in energy systems, and recipient of the Clean Energy Action 2017 Sunshine Award:

“The clean disruption will flip the architecture of energy and bring abundant, cheap and participatory energy. Just like those previous technology disruptions, the clean disruption is inevitable and it will be swift.”
The evening will be in two parts, with Mr. Seba’s presentation preceded by a soiree.
6/8/17 5:30-7:30:   Soiree at the CU Natural History Museum,

The Role of Competition in Bringing More Renewable Energy to Colorado

Wednesday January 25, 2017

6:15 light refreshments
6:30 Short talk by Ken Regelson, followed by discussion
George Reynolds Library
Meeting Room Downstairs
3595 Table Mesa Drive,

Boulder, CO 80305

Ken Regelson spoke to the Boulder County Chapter of the Colorado Renewable Energy Society (BCRES) on Tuesday Jan 11, 2017 on bringing more renewable energy to Colorado and the role of competition.

A summary of that talk and Ken’s background is here.

Now we want to engage the community in a discussion of how we move forward from here, moving from our current fossil fuel dominated electric mix to a 21st century electric system that:

Is More Competitive
Lowers Carbon and Other Pollution
Reduces Water Waste
 
Please email us at info@cleanenergyaction.org if you’d like to get more involved in the effort on enabling competition!

Feb. 29, 6 pm: Utility Scale Battery Storage – Especially the Flow Battery

Utility Scale Battery Storage:
Especially the Flow Battery

Professor Michael Marshak, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Chemistry
University of Colorado Boulder

6:00 pm Event Begins
5:30 pm Light Refreshments
Boulder Main Public Library
Boulder Creek Room – Main Floor

Michael Marshak, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of chemistry at
CU-Boulder. His research program spans the fields of organic and inorganic chemistry to make new chemicals and materials. Specifically, he plans to investigate organic reactions featuring new transition metal catalysts, nanoparticle and thin-film materials, and chemical transformations related to biomass and carbon dioxide.

Michael has helped to pioneer the use of organic materials called quinones for flow batteries, a promising new technology that can store massive quantities of energy on the electric grid. Flow batteries can enable greater use of renewable energy resources such as wind and solar by providing power when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing. His interest in batteries is now focused on the design of new chemistries that could enable solar-powered homes and businesses to go off-grid.
