During this breakfast seminar they will discuss their individual paths to renewable energy and their current work within the field.
Gotland has set its goal of having climate-neutral energy supply by 2025. The municipality has already cut its dependency from fossil-fuels by 60% since 1995 and wind power has become our main energy source here on Gotland. Research and innovations within renewable energy are significant drivers for this change.
During his seminar, Karin Edberg and Nermina Saracevic will discuss their individual paths to renewable energy and their current work within the sector.
Nermina was awarded the Global Swede diploma 2018 and will share the value of this achievement with us and her personal interest in innovations in wind industry such as floating wind technology.
Karin is a sociologist with an extra interest in issues of energy and environment and senior lecturer at Department of Earth Sciences, Vindenergi at Uppsala University. In her PhD thesis, she studied framings of energy infrastructural siting, focusing on wind power and natural gas, and its relation to landscape understanding and social practices. Karin’s research interests also include the concept of sustainable development, the welfare state and energy end consumption as part of our social practices.
Both come from different academic backgrounds but what they have in common is their passion for wind energy.
