December 2013 Energy Lunch | Noon – 3:00 p.m. | Tuesday, December 17th at the Port Townsend Community Center
Key Speaker: Stephen Crolius, Vice President – Clean Tech Practice, Alliance Consulting Group, Boston MA
Stephen Crolius was a primary member of the Clinton Climate Initiative that worked to reduce the carbon emissions in the world’s largest cities and that used market-based responses to unacceptable levels of climate impact from petroleum-based transportation systems to achieve successful introductions of electric and hybrid-electric vehicles as well as to plan and advocate for fleet trials of alternative transportation fuels including anhydrous ammonia, the “other hydrogen.”
Mr. Crolius has reviewed the energy systems presently in place in Jefferson County and, applying his broad experience with energy technologies, commercial development, and regulatory requirements, he will present how local energy production and use might change in the not-to-distant future. He will offer his view of how the various energy action programs and projects already underway here might fit together in a highly constructive way providing, thereby, a consistent long-term basis for economic development of jobs and businesses in Jefferson County.
