    A Road Map to 100% Renewable Energy: Public Policy and Organizational Change

    Friday, Sep 9, 2016 -

    Time: 9:00am - 4:30pm

     According to the City of Vancouver’s Renewable City strategy, a viable route to using 100% renewable energy is one that includes partnering with business, community, non-profit organizations, schools, labour unions, faith groups and surrounding municipalities and various levels of government, public agencies and the public. It is no longer enough to think ‘carbon-neutral” or carbon-trading as the go-to strategies for reducing GHG emissions. Real change requires our society to switch to zero- and partially zero emissions technologies as soon as possible. What is the road map? In this workshop you will learn more about the strategy for getting to 100% renewables led by major cities around the world including Vancouver and specifically what your organization can do to reduce energy use, increase the use of renewable energy and increase the supply of renewable energy. The focus of this strategy is on space heating in buildings and transportation, the measurement of current GHGs, setting targets and evaluating results. Energy policy options will also be examined.BiographyMark Kenneth Jaccard is a professor of sustainable energy in the School of Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada.Mark’s PhD is from the Energy Economics and Policy Institute at the University of Grenoble. He has published over 100 academic papers, most of these related to his principal research focus: the design and application of energy-economy models that assess the effectiveness of sustainable energy and climate policies. For this career research, he was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 2009 and British Columbia’s Academic of the Year in 2008. He has contributed to several major processes and assessments, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (93-96 and 2010-2012), the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development (1995-2001 and 2007-2009), Canada’s National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy (2006-2009), British Columbia’s Climate Action Team (2007-2009), and the Global Energy Assessment (2008-2012). In 2006, his book, Sustainable Fossil Fuels, won the Donner Prize for top policy book in Canada.Fee: $393.75
