Those most affected by planning and decision-making in the energy and utility sectors are typically not part of the process. Yet these decisions have a significant impact on household economic stability, community resilience, and the natural resources that affect health and well-being.

This creates an imperative for redefining the image of an energy stakeholder. By prioritizing broader public participation in the production, distribution, and regulation of our energy system, we can we account for differences in opportunities and burdens—and then address systemic inequities.

Recent wildfires in California have caused record-breaking losses that are likely to increase in the future due to the impacts of climate change. More than three times as many acres have burned to date in 2021 compared to the same period in the record-breaking previous year, with drought, extreme heat, and reduced snowpack contributing to the severity of the fires.

Join Penn IUR for a virtual discussion featuring experts from across the University to celebrate and expand upon the new audible book by Penn IUR Faculty Fellow Mark Alan Hughes, Livable Cities. Through ten chapters, Livable Cities explores why we seek out cities and how they create the conditions that allow us to meet our fundamental needs as individuals and as a human community. The book also examines some of the most pressing issues cities face today, including racial inequality, pandemics, and climate change.

Water and wastewater utilities are large consumers of energy. At the same time, water and wastewater utilities are on the front lines of addressing the impacts of climate change, whether those impacts are in the form of flooding, drought, or severe storms. As providers of a fundamental infrastructure service, water and wastewater utilities must find ways to simultaneously reach net zero emissions while addressing climate change impacts.

Join us for an afternoon with Linda Tuhiwai Smith! This lecture kicks off a four-part OPT IDC speaker series which explores the following questions:

If environmental humanities attend to the histories and practices that have severed thought from place, cleaving culture from nature, how might this collaborative cluster for training future leaders in environmental humanities support practices that institute better relations?

How might we bring critical university studies into fresh dialogue with discourses of environment and ecology?

The 2021-2022 Wharton Energy Conference will be focused on one of the key questions of our time: how will the energy industry navigate the next ten years of the energy transition? Investors, executives, policy makers, and entrepreneurs will participate in topical panels to help answer this question. Topics to be covered include innovation in policy frameworks for the energy sector, the influence of institutional investors and growing ESG investment criteria, and how large and small energy companies are scaling technological solutions to decarbonize the energy system.
