At a national level there are alternatives to fossil fuels, and we are exploring one of them, geothermal energy production. Locally, PES refinery might be used in less greenhouse- producing ways. Tune in to Planet Philadelphia 4-5 pm Friday 9/6/19 on WGGT-LP 92.9 FM Germantown Community Radio and streaming at gtownradio.com.
Katherine Young: is laboratory program manager in Geoscience at the NREL (National Renewable Energy Lab), a federal lab dedicated to the research, development, commercialization, and deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. She has particular expertise in geothermal energy and will be talking about the prospects for geothermal energy particularly in light of the recent national report on geothermal energy.
Also on this show:
Peter Winslow has worked on a Port Development Plan and on projects for the Department of Defense, Carnegie Mellon, Siemens, and Rutgers. He is the President of the Evolve Foundation and the Founder/President of the FLAG (the Free Loan Association for Germantown). A long-term advocate for the environmental and social justice community, Peter has followed developments at Philadelphia Energy Solutions (PES) for a several years. Peter has talked to us monthly for the last two months about PES (the largest refinery on the east coast). He will give us the latest news about what is happening at PES in the wake of the fire and closure of the facility since he last talked to us. Is there a realistic possibility that the site can be used in a way that does not encourage the use of fossil fuels?
