Interfacing renewable energy infrastructure and human behavior to pursue energy security
A free, virtual, interdisciplinary Forum on Sustainability, presented by Cell Press

Despite efforts to decarbonize energy systems through widespread electrification, much electricity continues to rely on (often imported) fossil fuels, particularly natural gas. This has significant impacts on residential communities when imports become compromised or expensive and utility prices unexpectedly increase. But renewable energy communities where consumers can become prosumers and reduce reliance on a conventional energy supplier can help to alleviate the burden of energy utility price increases and shift society away from reliance on natural gas—making it possible to pursue energy security alongside and in partnership with broad decarbonization.

Join us for a free, virtual discussion featuring experts in human behavior, energy systems and policy, electrical engineering, market structures, and widespread energy access and transitions. Moderated by Cell Press editors, the conversation will explore the connection between human behavior and renewable energy infrastructure and develop new dialogue around the feasibility and major roadblocks of renewable energy as a vehicle to pursue energy security in residential and commercial sectors.
