Essex Library to Host Clean Energy Series

March 13, 2007

In response to the outpouring of interest about the environmentally sensitive building practices incorporated into its new addition, the Essex Library is hosting a series of programs featuring clean energy initiatives. The series will be co-sponsored by Essex Citizens for Clean Energy and will include two popular films, a panel discussion, and will culminate with a forum which will focus on the practical applications of the information presented at the previous events.

The series will open on Wednesday, March 28 at 6:30pm with a showing of Al Gore’s Academy Award winning film, An Inconvenient Truth. On April 25 at 6:30pm, the public is invited to view the thought-provoking film, Who Killed the Electric Car. The film investigates the death and resurrection of the electric car, as well as the role of renewable energy and sustainable living in our country’s future. Following both films, energy experts from Noble Environmental who were trained by Al Gore will invite audience participation in discussions of the issues raised by the films. The series will continue on May 9th with a panel discussion by local home owners, business leaders and architects who have successfully utilized clean energy technology in recent construction projects. The date of the final event will be announced at a later time. It will focus on how average citizens can implement clean energy strategies in their daily lives and become more active in local energy initiatives.

Admission is free but seating is limited and registration is recommended. Call the library at 860 767-1560 to register or for more information. Check the library’s website at for updates.

  1. Ideas such as the electric car understandably take the public’s imagination.

    There is also potential for the UK to be green in other far less glamorous ways. Anaerobic Digestion is one such, because we waste our waste. We should be using it as a resource.
