Description

ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability presents a free webinar on Urban Forest and Solar Energy entitled Maximum Solar at the Heart of Urban Forests as part of the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Solar Outreach Partnership program. Trees are green. So is Solar Energy. Both Urban forests and solar energy generate major environmental, economic, and social benefits. As the cost of solar energy continues to decrease, the number of solar installations in urban environments is growing rapidly across the country. While residents appreciate their urban forests, solar photovoltaic systems lose their efficiency in shaded areas. This webinar will review the potential conflicts between urban forestry and solar PV systems, and recommend solutions that enable communities to achieve maximum solar integration in the heart of urban forests.
