The Low-Carbon Energy Revolution and its Land Area Challenge

Kevin Palmer-Wilson, PhD Candidate, Department of Mechanical Engineering, UVic

Friday, Jan. 31: 12:30 to 1:45 pm

Kevin Palmer-Wilson is a University of Victoria PhD candidate in search of low-carbon options for Canada’s energy future. He has created new methods for estimating British Columbia’s geothermal potential, forecasting the land impact of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Alberta, and investigating the rural/urban dichotomy of fully electrifying Metro Vancouver. Before joining UVic’s Institute for Integrated Energy Systems, Kevin developed on-shore wind farms in southern Germany. His masters in Renewable Energy Management brought him to the South Pacific island nation of Tonga where he also aided the harnessing of wind resources. Kevin has helped design, manufacture and race a solar powered car through Australia for the World Solar Challenge. He is a nerd about maps, loves coding for fun, and thoroughly enjoys zipping around Victoria on his bike. Kevin is a mechanical engineer and industrial mechanic by training, and a member of Green College at the University of British Columbia.
