Please join us in-person on Friday, October 22nd from 1 - 2 p.m. EST for a talk by Jamil Ellis.

We are already feeling the effect of the climate emergency now as we see wild fires and floods around the planet. There's a lot of work to do bring us back from irreversibly damaging the planet. I'll talk about some of technology's role in the fight against climate change. Cities and specifically multi-family buildings produce a large percentage of the carbon emissions threatening the planet. At Bright Power we utilize technology to make buildings more energy efficient to bring our world closer to a carbon neutral economy
