See how the insurance industry can help in the transition to a clean energy future to mitigate climate change.
The World Energy Council has partnered with energy and finance leaders to identify the key challenges and recommendations to finance resilient energy infrastructure. The project is supported by insights from Swiss Re Corporate Solutions, Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc., and the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development. Combined with the Council’s annual energy trilemma analysis on political and regulatory risks, the Road to Resilience series provides decision makers with an encompassing understanding of the risks involved in financing resilient energy infrastructures. The Road to Resilience series features three reports available on www.worldenergy.org/publications: • Managing and financing extreme weather risks • Managing the risks of the energy-water-food nexus • Managing cybe...
Fostering strength, hope and optimism in our children. If Beaver, of the 1950's television sitcom Leave it to Beaver, were a student today, he might not be doing so well. The increased stress, pressure and demands on the children of today has caused an alarming increase in childhood depression, health disorders and school problems. However, numerous scientific studies of children facing great adversity have demonstrated just how important the power of resilience is for successful growth. Growth that most parents want for their children. Parents seek happiness, success in school, satisfaction in life and solid friendships as keys to helping their children transition happily and successfully into adult life. If we examined these parental goals it would not be an oversimplification to con...

(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv) Dr. Darlene Mininni shares how resilience, emotional intelligence and mindfulness can affect physical health. Science consistently shows that positive emotions make a physiological impact on one's life - whether you are 18 or 80 - and Dr. Mininni offers practical advice to bring more well-being into your life. This lecture is part of the Frank B. Roehr Memorial Lecture Series, which was established by Mr. Roehr's daughter, Suzanne Angelucci, to inform the public on topics associated with the power of humor and positive thinking.

Andy is a professor of Climate Design & Sustainability at the Faculty of Architecture of TU Delft. He coordinates the Green Building Innovation research programme and responsible for the built environment theme within the Delft Energy Initiative. He founded the European Network for Sustainable Regions (ENSR). Already for quite some time he has been engaged with sustainable energy systems for buildings, neighbourhoods, cities and entire regions and therefore has developed methods to map the energy demand and potentials (Energy Potential Mapping, Heat Mapping). These can form the basis for a spatial plan based on a sustainable energy system or energy-neutral urban reconstruction (Rotterdam Energy Approach and Planning, Amsterdam Guide to Energetic Urbanism). In the spirit of ideas worth spr...

Powerhive provides access to productive, affordable and reliable mini-grid electricity for rural homes and businesses around Africa and beyond. This video shows Powerhive customers and solar generation sites in Kisii county, Kenya, where the company got its start. Powerhive’s ability to serve commercial customers in remote areas is a key component of our value proposition, and what sets us apart from the national electricity grid as well as from small solar home systems and solar kits. Not only are we connecting communities to real electricity for the first time, we are empowering people to contribute to economic development by deploying scalable and resilient energy infrastructure that is better for the planet.

Michigan Tech students help assemble a portable military microgrid at the Keweenaw Research Center in this time lapse video. Microgrids like this one can help military bases and communities prevent total electrical grid failure by providing solar power quickly. To learn more about what Michigan Tech is doing to build resiliency into the electrical grid, read “The Elasticity of Electricity” article featured in the 2018 Research magazine.
Let's keep pushing the industry forward! Sign up to hear exclusive news about the BuiltWorlds Summit 2018 visit: http://www.builtworlds.com/summit2018 An understanding of how cities and buildings can use energy efficiently will support resilient and intelligent cities. The long term cost and sustainability of the means by which energy is produced is also a critical aspect of this equation. During this session, we will explore these questions as well as the unique challenges of constructing new sources of energy and the broader policies that facilitate those investments.
