The Challenges of Energy Sustainability at the Local, National and Global Levels

December 12, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

James Spalding served as the Paraguayan General Director (2013-2018) of ITAIPU Binacional, the world leader in both accumulated hydroelectric energy generation (over 2.4 billion MWh) and annual energy generation, having reached 103,098,366 MWh in 2016. ITAIPU Binacional, located on the Paraná River, is jointly owned by Paraguay and Brazil, through ANDE and ELETROBRAS respectively and with an installed capacity of 14,000 MW, is the second largest hydroelectric dam in the world.

This lecture addresses critical issues of global magnitude, as the issue of transformative technology continues to be at the forefront of global discussions about the future of sustainable energy in the world. There is no more important contributor to the health and well-being of people than the supply of energy.

James Spalding will speak followed by a Q&A session.

Event is free. Seating is limited.
