Native projects for renewable energy discussed at Studium
Reuben Martinez, a member of the Makah Tribe, will discuss “Energy Sovereignty: Exploring Renewable Energy Projects with Tribal Nations” at 12:30 p.m. Thursday during the Peninsula College’s Studium Generale.
The free virtual presentation is available at https://pencol-edu.zoom.us/j/88082575506. The meeting ID is 880 8257 5506.
Martinez will explore three major areas of renewable energy project development: technical, financial and policy. Looking through a tribal lens, Martinez will examine how sovereignty interacts with these three areas and how they each impact the overall process of accessing renewable energy projects.
Martinez is a recent graduate of Western Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in economics. He is an alumnus of Peninsula College who spent his final year at WWU focusing primarily on renewable energy.
