Energy Seminar: Accelerants for Building Decarbonization, Anthony Kinslow II
This event is open to:
Long-standing barriers to participation in the clean energy economy have produced well-mapped landscapes of underserved communities, yet even after key financial barriers are removed, additional cultural and capacity challenges remain acute. With sustained investment in a seeding strategy, community anchor institutions can host revenue-generating microgrids that fuel local job creation and hiring, improve community resilience to hazards, and mitigate cultural barriers to adoption of clean energy upgrades. This seminar will illuminate insights about the essential role of cultural competency and community seeding alongside more accessible financial solutions to accelerate building energy upgrades for rapid decarbonization.
Dr. Anthony Kinslow II ('19) is the founder and CEO of Gemini Energy Solutions, which provides investment-grade energy audits for small commercial buildings. Dr. Kinslow also collaborates with community anchor institutions on the design and development of microgrids for both revenue generation and resiliency. In addition to being a founding member of the Green For All Business Council, Dr. Kinslow is a co-founder of Stanford courses on energy justice, including Racial Equity in Energy and Quest for Inclusive Clean Energy Economies.
