Hunch Lunch 2022
Energy Transformations: The electrification of transportation
As energy generation becomes increasingly decentralized, and the need to decarbonize our transportation sector grows, what challenges and opportunities should we prepare to meet? We partnered with SRP to explore questions like this during our annual Hunch Lunch. Local experts in energy generation, electric vehicles, air quality, mining, community planning and more shared their hunches in 4-minute flash talks, sparking new ideas and connections.
The first step in exchanging knowledge is sharing hunches — ideas rooted in experience that have not yet been tested. Hunch Lunches facilitate this kind of exchange between sectors, breaking down knowledge silos and highlighting diverse forms of expertise. Speakers share flash talks about some of the most recent, pressing or interesting issues in their fields — sparks of knowledge that could help us move toward greater community resilience.
This year, the Knowledge Exchange for Resilience partnered with SRP to explore the theme of energy transformations, especially as they concern the transportation sector. Nine local experts in energy generation, electric vehicles, air quality, mining, community planning and more shared their hunches about the challenges and opportunities that will accompany these changes.
