Boulder's Energy Future Speaker Series - 2012 Community Events
To help inform residents, business leaders and other interested individuals about issues surrounding climate change and energy, the City of Boulder is launching a spring speakers series. The city will host guest lecturers and partner with community organizations to highlight topics that are related to the goals, opportunities and challenges of Boulder’s Energy Future. All events are FREE and open to the public.
These are just a few dates that have been scheduled. More will be available soon, so please return to this website for updates.
2012 Summer School on Renewable and Sustainable Energy presented by Inter-Continental Advanced Materials & Photonics (I-CAMP)
July 16 through Aug. 11, 2012 at the University of Colorado at Boulder
The Inter-Continental Advanced Materials for Photonics (I-CAMP) Summer School will enable researchers working at the forefronts of materials science & photonics to discuss the emerging uses of light for control and fundamental study of matter and advances in the use of materials to control light. The I-CAMP School will provide education for young scientists working in materials science, optics, photonics, biophysics, nanoscience, and related fields. The goal is to prepare the participants for research at the frontiers of science and technology by providing an interdisciplinary expert training not easily available within the traditional system of graduate education and postdoctoral apprenticeship. The Summer School is primarily targeted at advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows within the first three years after defending PhD, although those in different circumstances are considered too. In particular, we strongly encourage early-career professionals from Industry to participate in the I-CAMP school if the school topics match their interests/background.
City residents and interested parties were invited to attend several FREE events that are part of the University of Colorado at Boulder's Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI) - a joint venture with the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory that addresses important, complex problems in energy that require a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional approach.
If you missed these events, you can watch videos of these and more on the RASEI website.
RASEI's mission is to expedite solutions that transform energy by advancing renewable energy science, engineering, and analysis through research, education, and industry partnerships.

Communicating Climate Change with CSU Professor John Calderazzo
Wednesday, April 18, 2012
John Calderazzo is Professor of English at Colorado State University whose writing on science communication and the intersections of nature and culture has appeared in Audubon, High Country News, Orion, Best American Nature Writing, Thoreau’s Legacy: Stories of Global Warming (Penguin/Union of Concerned Scientists), and elsewhere. His most recent book is Rising Fire: Volcanoes & Our Inner Lives. At CSU, he is co-director of an innovative climate change across the curriculum education and outreach program, Changing Climates @ CSU (http://changingclimates.colostate.edu).
Population, Arithmetic and Energy with CU Professor Emeritus Al Bartlett
Sunday, May 6, 2012
Albert A. Bartlett is Professor Emeritus in Nuclear Physics at University of Colorado at Boulder. He has been a member of the faculty of the University of Colorado since 1950. He was President of the American Association of Physics Teachers in 1978 and in 1981 he received their Robert A. Millikan Award for his outstanding scholarly contributions to physics education.

Jonathan Nelson is an energy professional that works as a Research Analyst at E Source here in Boulder. Mr. Nelson's work focuses on demand response policy and stratey and he routinely advises utilities around the nation on this topic. . He has gained an in-depth understanding of the various issues involved in implementing demand response solutions and how this demand-side strategy can be used to help balance the grid in dealing with supply-side issues from increased renewable energy generation. He holds a B.A. in Environmental Studies from the University of Colorado at Boulder, as well as Certificates in Energy Science and Policy from RASEI and Western American Studies from the Center of the American West.
