No matter the type, all forms of energy have environmental impacts. This session will examine the environmental impacts that conventional energy systems continue to have, as well as the cumulative impacts of developing and deploying renewable energy systems. We will also discuss tools we can use to compare the total impacts of different systems across their life cycle, and techniques and methods for mitigating and remediating environmental damage.
