Grant Williamson Invited to Speak at the Clean and Fair Economy Summit

Grant Williamson was invited to speak at the BlueGreen Alliance Clean and Fair Economy Summit on September 14th and 15th in Olympia, WA. He was one of six presenters speaking during the session: Energizing the Future: Using Clean Energy, Storage and Efficiency to Reduce Emissions. Congratulations, Grant!

Panel Info:
Tackling climate change means we have to shift how America generates the energy we use every day to power our lives. Renewable energy generation and energy efficiency have already reached levels we couldn’t dream of just 20 years ago, but what will the future hold and how can we keep up this momentum? Find out about companies, projects, and new approaches that are bringing more renewable energy to the grid, making our homes and businesses more energy and water efficient, and finding ways to store our energy to reduce waste and ensure it is there when we need it.
