The summit features over 50 exhibits and workshops that share effective tools for reducing home energy use, using renewable energy and transitioning our communities to greener more sustainable energy sources. At one exhibit attendees are able to sample Velma’s Kettlecorn which is freshly popped out of a kettle powered by UMass Power Pallet which generates electricity through wood gasification and creates Biochar as a bi-product. Biochar holds carbon in the ground for centuries when used as a soil enhancer.
The summit will also feature keynote speaker Halina Brown of Clark University who will speak on Sustainable Consumption.
The summit is being held at Patterson Hall and includes lunch for those attending.
