Public Science Lecture Series: Energy Revolution

The U.S. wastes two-thirds of its energy, including 80 percent of the energy used in transportation. As Dr. Prentiss demonstrates in her book, Energy Revolution: The Physics and Promise of Efficient Energy Harvard Press: 2015), conversion to wind and solar power could generate 100 percent of the United States average total energy demand for the foreseeable future. She discusses how these technologies work and how they can be phased in quickly.
