Generating power to meet our energy needs presents one of the greatest impacts on the environment today, but how do these facilities actually get sited and built? While the resulting power plants are obvious, many of the decisions that went into their creation are not. With every form of energy, this decision making process typically involves many tradeoffs to better mitigate and understand environmental impacts. Join the Michigan Energy Forum for a discussion with three energy professionals who will provide a look behind the curtain into how these decisions are made. You may be surprised to find how central mitigating environmental impacts is to siting, constructing, and managing power generation facilities!​
