With the generous support of Alaska Airlines, Western's Institute for Energy Studies speaker series convenes energy experts from on and off campus and connects the Western Washington University and Bellingham energy communities. Speakers will explore the diverse fields of energy research and development, and also debate timely issues that connect public policy and business thinking to emerging knowledge in energy science and technology.
Every lecture in this series will be held each Wednesday from 4-5 p.m. in Communications Facility 115; all are free and open to the public.
The first lecture in the series, to be held Wednesday, Jan. 17, will be "Electrify Everything-ish" by Vox's David Roberts.
Also of note, The Energy Union Student Club will meet immediately after the speaker each week from 5-7 p.m. in the same room. This club is open to any and all students interested in learning about energy. Meetings are from 5-6 p.m., and study groups/tutoring happen from 6-7 p.m.
