Flip a switch and the light comes on. Turn a knob and the room warms. But what happens if these systems break down? We take energy for granted, yet instabilities in our infrastructure could mean future failures. Seattle’s own energy entrepreneur Jimmy Jia explores our relationship with energy in his book Driven by Demand: How Energy Gets It’s Power. It’s a story about the challenges inherent in our society’s need for energy and concerns with our move towards a smarter energy infrastructure. Jia offers a unique viewpoint on our energy past and explains how everyone can participate in a clean and prosperous energy future.
An exclusive networking reception will be held from 5:30–7:00PM for $25 ticket holders.
