Earth Day is April 22 but Cape Cod Technology Council is celebrating Earth Day all month long with “EarthTech Month,” a series of five events taking place every Friday, focusing on sustainable energy and green innovation.
“Environmental sustainability is a priority for the Tech Council,” said Cape Cod Technology CEO Bert Jackson. “I’m very excited about new green tech that is coming to our region, some at industrial scale, some for business and consumers. This series is a great fit for Cape Codders who are passionate about moving to an emissions-free society.”
The online series launches April 2 with the First Friday program, “Offshore Wind with Vineyard Wind” from 8 to 9 a.m., with Dana Rebeiro and Nate Mayo. Vineyard Wind is developing the nation’s first utility-scale offshore wind energy project located 15 miles off of the coast of Massachusetts. The project will generate clean, renewable, cost-competitive energy for more than 400,000 homes and businesses across the Commonwealth, while reducing carbon emissions by more than 1.6 million tons per year.
Admission to this event is $10 for members, $15 for guests and registration is required at cctechcouncil.org.
Throughout the month, free Coffee Q&As will take place at 10 a.m. The schedule and topics are:
- April 9 – Electric cars
- April 16 – Agri-Solar: Putting panels on farms
- April 23 – Electric airplanes with Jim Wolf of Cape Air
- April 30 – Greentown Labs, sustainable business incubator
