Climate Change: An Update of the Science and the Impacts, Opportunities and Strategies related to Estuaries and Utilities
Tuesday March 3rd, in PECO’s Energy Hall, Downstairs at 2301 Market Street, Philadelphia
8:00 - 8:30 Registration
8:30 - 12:00 Program
RSVP: By 5 pm Friday, February 27, 2015
Please join SWEP of Greater Philadelphia in PECO’s, Energy Hall to learn from the experts in the field:
Dr. Kirsten L. Findell, Research Physical Scientist, NOAA, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
Dr. Danielle Kreeger, Science Director, Partnership for the Delaware Estuary
Melanie Dickersbach, Climate and Environment Strategy Manager, Exelon Corporation
About the Program: (SWEP is seeking CLE credits)
Dr. Findell will discuss the latest in Climate observations, interpretations and implications, from both a broad global view, including that of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [IPCC] and in particular as it relates to how land-atmosphere interactions impact the hydrologic cycle.
Dr. Kreeger will share observations of how the Delaware Estuary is impacted by climate change and some solutions to sustain the natural infrastructure. Climate Change presents challenges for the key natural resources in the Estuary and River Basin; resources that help keep our air and drinking water clean, protect us from flooding, and support diverse fish and wildlife. Fortunately, there are solutions if we can commit to environmental protection and restoration.
Ms. Dickersbach will speak about the risks and opportunities to the electric industry and how Exelon in particular is developing its broader response to climate change. As one of the nation’s largest producers of low-carbon energy and a power supplier in three major metropolitan areas, Exelon understands the impacts to customers and communities. Hear how Exelon met its 2020 GHG mitigation goals in 2013, is expanding its response to continued GHG mitigation and addressing infrastructure resiliency issues.
SWEP Greater of Philadelphia thanks PECO, an Exelon Company for providing our location and breakfast.
