    ENVIRONMENT POLICY GROUP: Solar Energy and Eco-living in France What is possible and can Renewable energy do the job too (or instead)?

    Physicist Dennis Shibut, will explore what is possible from solar energy in France and offer a practical road map to a cleaner, brighter future for everyone. His presentation is based on an article written for the 2015 COP21 world climate conference in Paris. The surprise findings in this presentation were reported by the French press and radio. In 2017, it was the opening presentation at the European Solar Summit.  

    What is Possible? Currently 70 percent of France’s electricity is supplied by 59 nuclear reactors. This energy production is headed off a cliff: in the next 15 years when  most of these reactors will have reached their end-of-design-life and must be replaced.

    Dennis Shibut is a physicist and former researcher for NASA’s Skylab mission, as well as for the US Coast and Geodetic Survey in the first studies in ocean-atmospheric energy exchange. He has taught physics at the university and community college levels. Since the late 1990s he has written numerous articles about green living through his website Kyoto Action Report. Dennis is a member of several prominent environmental advocacy organizations such as the Sierra Club and the Union of Concerned Scientists.

    In France, Dennis is an “Ambassador” for the 100% green electricity utility company Enercoop, recently rated the best electricity provider in France by Que Choisir and Greenpeace. He currently resides in Avignon.

    As a long-time resident of Avignon, he has been twice Chair of DA Avignon and twice Vice-chair.
