Rob Best, Andrew Ponec and Tim Burke in the studio.
Tim Burke, Andrew Ponec, and Rob Best are guests. For our season finale we invited back three of our favorite panelists from the Stanford community, Tim Burke (Engineers for a Sustainable World), Andrew Ponec (Stanford Grid Alternatives), and Rob Best (Solar Decathlon) for a roundtable discussion on some of the topics we’ve covered throughout the fall. We played segments from previous shows and talked about everything from the recent UNFCCC Conference of Parties 18 in Doha last week to solar technology markets to the integration of variable renewable resources onto the electricity grid.
The show was presented by Adam Pearson and Erik Olesund.
Dr. Philip Duffy, senior scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, is our guest this week. He led us on a discussion of how climate change events can shift renewable energy policies, what kind of climate change adaptation techniques make sense financially, and what Superstorm Sandy means to the environmental movement in this country. Certainly a timely interview.
Andrew Ponec, an undergraduate student leader of Grid Alternatives at Stanford University speaks about their efforts to install solar power on resident buildings in the bay area as our new segment “Energy on the Farm” premiers.
Presented by Adam Pearson, Sophia Vo, Kara Fong and Erik Olesund.
