Thursday, January 12 at 12:00pm to 2:45pmVirtual Event
The "Designing Place-Based Renewable Energy Infrastructure: Exploring Opportunities and Challenges for the Pacific Northwest Region" workshop aims to support participating designers, energy professionals, and local stakeholders in developing and visualizing design strategies for integrating renewable energy infrastructure into existing landscapes and communities. Participants will explore and develop these design strategies through three case studies addressing the Pacific Northwest's urban, rural, and coastal communities. The products of this workshop are intended to aid local communities in understanding the benefits and trade-offs that new renewable energy development will bring, ultimately supporting them in adopting localized renewable energy infrastructure that supports their cultures, landscapes, and long-term visions.
Sponsored by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), the University of Oregon will host the two-part virtual workshop from 12:00 - 2:45 PM PST (Pacific Standard Time) on January 10 and 12, 2023.
We welcome landscape architects and other design, planning, and engineering professionals, policymakers, and community stakeholders, including representatives of municipalities, regional agencies, utilities, non-profits, businesses, and community groups.
