Transforming Renewable Energy Conflicts: A Roadmap to Smooth Implementation

Dr. Lawrence Susskind, Ford Professor of Urban and Environmental Planning at MIT, is working to flip the narrative around renewable energy projects and teach a new generation how to successfully see these projects to fruition. As a pioneer in conflict resolution, founder of the Consensus Building Institute, and co-founder of the Program on Negotiation at Harvard, Professor Susskind has been teaching his students an innovative approach to tackling these disputes.

By applying their work to real-world renewable energy projects, his students learn to combine data analysis with mediation. This approach helps identify potential conflicts early in the development process, reducing opposition, preventing delays, and ensuring smoother implementation of renewable energy projects.

Join us to discover how these techniques improve acceptance and accelerate the deployment of green energy, playing a crucial role in combating climate change on the frontlines.
