Energy Solutions for a Bright Future

Clean Energy Technologies for Communities

An on-demand replay of this event is available below, as held live on August 18, 2011.


Energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies offer communities a host of benefits. Saving energy and money, reducing environmental impacts, creating new jobs and fostering clean economic development are foremost among them. Long-time energy alternatives combine with new and improved technologies as a menu of exciting choices for communities, regions and states.

In this session, find out the latest on what the technologies are, which are relevant for Florida and what they can do for your community. Learn about what they cost, their benefits and what's involved in implementing them. From solar and bioenergy to hydrogen, wind and water power, to high efficiency systems and strategies, gain a close-up look at the technology options, including those available now or near term and others to plan for in the future. State and national experts will present the menu of technology choices and answer your questions live.

The August 18 event recording is available below. The lever on the bottom bar of the player can be used to advance or rewind the videos.

PLEASE NOTE: The Website host (Go Daddy) has recently changed its media player software (into which our videos have been loaded). The prior player effectively accomodated Power Point slides, which appear much smaller in the new player (or distorted if viewed in full screen). We have tried alternatives, including You Tube and other third party players, without success and are working on other options.

In the meantime
, the slides show larger if the video is unedited and we are posting in that form in order to timely accomodate requests for replays.
This means that modules have not been created, brief pre-event conversation is included, pauses have not been deleted (like when slides are changed between the presentations) and other such improvements have not been made. In other words, the recording will play exactly as it aired live. 

You can see the video by clicking the arrow at the lower left hand side of the player box (small version) or clicking the arrow in the center of the screen (large version). Downloadable slides are available for some presentations. If presenter slides are printed out, setting to the grey tone handout format, 4 to a page works well.
