Documentary Film Screening "Wind Uprising"

When: May. 9, 2013, 1:30pm - 3:30pm
Campus Location: Greenspun Hall
Office/Remote Location: Auditorium

NSF-EPSCoR's Climate Change Seminar Series presents Wind Uprising, a documentary film, chronicles the turbulent journey that a wind entrepreneur and an engineer trail blazed to bring wind power to their home state of Utah. They faced stiff headwinds at every turn, including policy barriers, fickle investors, transmission limitations, and resistance from nearby residents that nearly derailed the project. The film details the common market, policy, and community roadblocks that might hinder wind energy development and the solutions that were discovered in Spanish Fork, Utah. Their inspiring story provides important ideas for policymakers, regulators, and residents about how they may encourage wind power development in their communities.

Refreshments with the speaker at 1:30 p.m., Film screening at 2 p.m.
