Mark Sardella Lecturing Thursday at Renesan

Slides for this presentation are posted here:  Renesan 2010 (PDF - 1.4Mb)

I'll be giving a 2-hour lecture entitled "Santa Fe Self Reliant in Energy? Local Ownership? Yes!" this Thursday at 2 p.m. at the Saint John's United Methodist Church (the "pumpkin church") in Santa Fe. The event is hosted by Renesan, and admission is $10 ($7 for Renesan members). The first hour will be a slide presentation covering the basic principles of Community-Based Energy and giving an update on where the energy industry and our community are headed, and then we'll take a short break and come back for a lively, interactive discussion. Hope to see you there!

Ah! Next Thursday...unfortunately I'll be out of town. Hope it gets on video...

Here's the nice blurb from RENESAN below:

L-3 Santa Fe Self-Reliant in Energy? Local Ownership? Yes. Yes.

* Mark Sardella
* Thursday, February 4; 2-4PM
* $7 for members, $10 for nonmembers

Wall Street investors get most of our local energy dollars. They also make the decisions about our use of coal and natural gas as they are sucking dollars from our pockets to theirs. It doesn't have to be this way in the future. We can take control of our energy needs, as have two thousand cities nationally (seven of them in New Mexico).

Mark Sardella is a professional engineer with 25 years of engineering experience, including six years designing space-flight instruments and 15 years developing renewable energy systems. In 2003 he co-founded Local Energy, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping communities become self-reliant in energy. Local Energy's research on innovative business models that can reduce the flow of energy dollars leaving the community led him to co-create the CapulĂ­n Cooperative Alliance, an organization designed to build solidarity among the small, independent businesses in Northern New Mexico.
