Making Local Renewables Happen in a Big Way!

Local renewables have flourished in the leading renewable energy markets around the world, but they have a long way to go in the United States. The Clean Coalition is accelerating the transition to local renewables through its extensive policy and program work, including though its Community Microgrid Initiative, which is proving that local renewables connected to the distribution grid can provide at least 25% of the total electric energy consumed while ensuring that grid reliability and power quality are maintained - or even improved.

Our speaker is Craig Lewis, the Founder and Executive Director of Clean Coalition. He has over 20 years experience in the renewable industry. He was previously VP of Government Relations of Green Volts - a solar technology company. He was the first to navigate a solar project through California's Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) solicitation process. Craig received an MBA and MSEE from University of Southern California and a BSEE from UC Berkeley.

 

Join us and invite your friends to join us. As always, we will start with desserts!
