Arts + Energy Forum

Beyond the Wave, a submission to the 2014 Land Art Generator Initiative design competition for Copenhagen. This artwork generates 4,229 MWh per year using organic photovoltaic (OPV) and kinetic harvesting (piezoelectric) technology.

Join CBCA for a dynamic Arts + Energy Forum that will focus on how creativity and ingenuity can fuel the future of our energy industry, including traditional and renewable energy.

This interactive dialogue will be led by the Land Art Generator Initiative. Based in Seattle, Land Art Generator provides a platform for global artists, architects, landscape architects, and other creatives working with engineers and scientists to bring forward solutions for sustainable energy infrastructures that enhance the city as works of public art while cleanly powering thousands of homes. We will also hear about local work happening through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden.
