The Bay Area is home to many pioneering organizations and companies in the renewable energy field, and this tour provides contacts and firsthand insights into local business, and the initiatives that create energy solutions and jobs for a greener future.
Renewable sources of energy – wind power, solar power, hydroelectric power, tidal power, geothermal energy and biomass – are essential alternatives to fossil fuels. Their growth stimulates employment, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, diversifies our energy supply, and reduces our dependence on unreliable and volatile fossil fuel markets (in particular oil and gas).
