“Batteries and the Matter of a Clean Energy Future” by Jay Turner, Associate Professor, Environmental Studies Program, Wellesley College. Scaling up a clean energy future is going to require more than just solar panels and wind turbines. It will also require batteries. How can considering the environmental history of batteries in the 20th century help us think more carefully about the role of batteries in a more sustainable and just 21st century? Cosponsored by the departments of History and Political Science.
Free and open to the public.
