Robert Gibson Speaks On Future Energy Resources For Los Alamos County


Robert Gibson, chair of the Los Alamos Future Energy Resources Committee, will present “Future Energy Resources for Los Alamos County” at a meeting of the Sierra Club, 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4 at UNM-Los Alamos, Building 2, room 203.

Los Alamos County’s Board of Public Utilities (BPU) adopted a goal in 2013 to “become a carbon-neutral electric provider by 2040.” This year, BPU appointed an ad hoc Future Energy Resources (FER) Committee to recommend a definition of “carbon-neutral,” future electrical energy resources in that context, and policy regarding distributed energy generation (such as “rooftop solar”).

This talk will summarize the County’s overall energy use, energy supplies, and carbon emissions, and then outline the study and recommendations of the FER Committee.

The public is invited to attend.
