Topic: Elecrification of Everything 
Speaker: Jacob Krich

To avert the worst impacts of climate change, the world needs to stop burning fossil fuels to make electricity and then use the resulting clean electricity to heat our homes and move our vehicles. This double transformation -- of the mostly invisible electrical system and of the energy systems we use every day -- has already begun and must move fast. In celebration of Earth Day, Jacob Krich will lead a discussion about renewable energy, its role in Canada, and how well electricity can replace the oil and natural gas we use so much of today. Jacob is a professor in the physics department at uOttawa, where his research focuses on how to more efficiently convert light into electricity. He's interested in all things energy.
