The Green Bike Tour has linked policy makers, solar energy production sites, environmental groups and research institutions in Slovenia all this week. Today, we traveled up over the edge of the Alps. We passed several solar sites since solar is the perfect distributed electricity generation alternative where it is difficult to get power lines installed and storms tend to disrupt service.
On Friday morning, we have a chance to tell you about it directly with a webinar that we welcome you to join.
We mainly spent our Thursday riding to the end of one river valley and up and over the mountains to the next. The main planning work of the day was for Friday's webinar, to solidify arrangements with University of Iowa Professor Tom Cook, who has been on most of the most recent Green Bike tours.
Simply copy the link in your browser, put in your name and initials and you can participate. You can just listen or listen and ask questions. The technology is very user friendly. The Green Bike team hopes to see many Iowans on our reporting session Friday at 10 a.m. Iowa time.
