Dr. James Pick, professor in the School of Business at the University of Redlands, explores the prospects and challenges of renewable energy growth in the Coachella Valley in his new book, Renewable Energy: Problems and Prospects in Coachella Valley, California. Using geospatial mapping and analysis, and interviews with leaders in small innovative firms, government agencies, and nonprofits, Dr. Pick examines the ways that socioeconomic conditions, markets, and transportation impact renewable energy development.

Dr. Pick also evaluates the prospects and problems for the growth of renewable entrepreneurship, manufacturing, assembly, and operations in the Coachella Valley. This leads to policy recommendations grounded in the book’s research findings, which are intended for use by governments, businesses, and nonprofits.
