Kosovo’s Fight for Sustainable Energy Access: Where is American Aid Going?

February 17, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm PST

KOSOVO’S FIGHT FOR SUSTAINABLE ENERGY ACCESS: WHERE IS AMERICAN AID GOING? with Dr. Dan Kammen and Noah Kittner Feb 17th 6:30-8:30pm Room 100 in Boalt Hall, UC Berkeley Hosts: BERC and the Sierra Club With support from the World Bank and US Government, the Kosovar Government has already begun the initial process of designing a new, inefficient coal power plant, Kosovo C, with air pollution emissions up to twice as high as those allowed under both US and Chinese regulations. The Kosovar people and leading environmental organizations are advocating for increased energy efficiency and use of clean energy sources. In the US, we can help by holding the US Government and World Bank accountable to their commitment to stop financing new coal projects overseas. The event will be informative and actionable. This plant is not yet approved and the audience can play a role in impacting its fate. Come be a part of the conversation and the solution.
