How Germany’s Public Banks Help Transition to Renewables
Wolfram Morales, Chief Economist for Sparkasse, the association of local public banks in Germany, will explain the role of these institutions in speeding the development of local renewable resources such as solar and wind, at this panel discussion in City Hall.
Joining Wolfram will be Nicolas Chaset, CEO of East Bay Community Energy, (Alameda County’s soon-to- launch Community Choice energy program), Greg Rosen, Founder and Principal of High Noon Advisors, (member of the East Bay Community Shared Solar Collaborative), and Jessica Tovar, Organizer for East Bay Clean Power Alliance. Pennie Opal Plant of Idle No More SF Bay, will lead an opening ceremony.

The event is hosted by Oakland City Councilmembers Dan Kalb and Rebecca Kaplan, and organized by Friends of the Public Bank of Oakland and Local Clean Energy Alliance.
