Schatz Energy in brief: climate-smart infrastructure and sustainable bioenergy

The Union of Concerned Scientists just released a new white paper on “climate-smart” infrastructure in California, citing the Blue Lake Rancheria (BLR) microgrid as a prime example of infrastructure built to safely sustain communities during climate change.

The Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) adopted a revised Standard for Advanced Fuels this month at the delegate meeting in Vancouver, Canada. Kevin Fingerman (second from left below) is an RSB board member, and is the principal investigator on the California Biopower Impact Project here at the Schatz Center.
