Event description
Energy Systems and Land Reclamation: An Environmental Imperative

About this event

Dr. M. Anne Naeth, University of Alberta

As the human population increases, it urgently requires access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy. Yet the land base that can provide for that energy and other life requirements is shrinking, creating a global challenge. Sustainable energy requires environmental responsibility, whether the source of energy generation is renewable or non-renewable. Energy generation that impacts ecosystem function requires action such as land reclamation to return environments to a functional level. Research is helping our society transition to new energy technologies, new ways of relating to energy, and new land reclamation technologies for current, future, and legacy disturbances. Dr Naeth will discuss how the nexus of land reclamation and energy systems is critical to shaping our environmental future.

Dr M Anne Naeth is a Professor of Land Reclamation and Restoration Ecology at the University of Alberta. She is Director of the Energy Systems Signature Area, Future Energy Systems Research Program, and Land Reclamation International Graduate School (LRIGS). She is internationally recognized for her land reclamation research. Her extensively published research has led to policy changes benefiting the environment and industry. She has received numerous awards recognizing her outstanding scholarship, teaching and community service, including the Canadian Land Reclamation Association Noranda Award, 18 Faculty Teacher of the Year awards, the prestigious 3M Fellowship, and University Cup. With the first University of Alberta NSERC CREATE grant she established LRIGS, the first school of its kind in the world for multi-disciplinary training and professional development of land reclamation students.
