Did you know that Energy Independence Day happens in July? Register to discuss climage change and renewable energy with Dan Bilello, an author on the Fifth (and latest) National Climate Assessment (NCA5) and Director of the Strategic Energy Analysis Center at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. 


Dan is an author on the NCA5’s energy chapter, and he will summarize some key findings, illustrating the effects of climate change on our weather, health, and communities. He will also highlight the role of renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, in addressing these challenges. 


NCA5 draws on the expertise of nearly 500 authors and 250 contributors from every state, as well as Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. NCA5 is the most up-to-date and comprehensive assessment of climate change in the United States, providing authoritative, decision-relevant information on how people across the country are experiencing climate change, the risks we face now and in the future, and actions underway to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and build resilience.
