Primary Local Energy Forms in 2025: Electricity and the Other Hydrogen

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.

12:00 PM: PTCC Meeting Room Available for Brown Bag Lunch and General Discussion of Local Energy Topics of Interest
12:30 PM: Key Speaker: Stephen Crolius, Vice President, Alliance Consulting Group (includes Q&A)
1:30 PM: Continuation of General Discussion of Local Energy Topics of Interest
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM: Climate Workshop (separate notice to be provided)

From Trinkets to Body Parts: 3D Printing – Transforming Sci-Fi Fantasy Into Reality

Wednesday, January 15th 2014 | 5:30pm – 8:15pm | Impact Hub Seattle | 220 2nd Ave South, Seattle, WA
Come learn how 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a catalyst for mass customization and rapid, collaborative product development. Its fast-growing market reach now includes consumers, small businesses and large industrial players. What are the implications for traditional manufacturing? What impact is 3D printing having on intellectual property law? Given this technology’s demonstrated ability to drive rapid advances in the Seattle region’s traditional fields of biomedicine, aerospace and software, what does the future of 3D printing look like?

KEYNOTE: Hod Lipson, Professor of Engineering, Cornell University.
