Clean Energy Speaker Series Begins Sept. 28

Primary tabs

Whether it’s natural gas or nuclear power, clean energy alternatives are a hot topic with everyone from legislators to small business owners.    

“By creating and hosting the Clean Energy Speaker Series, Georgia Tech is providing a neutral, open forum where everything from national security and economic development issues related to energy can be discussed,” said Ben Hill, director of the Clean Energy Speaker Series program.

The series, which kicks off on Sept. 28 with a discussion on “Natural Gas: A Clean Energy Alternative,” is meant to provide an objective analysis of the Southeast’s energy and power requirements through 2030 and the role clean energy could play. All talks are free and open to anyone.   

The monthly discussions will be held in the Hodges room of the Centergy Building from 12:30 to 2 p.m. The Sept. 28 event will feature Don Haley, vice president of business development for Chevron Natural Gas, and David Wochner, counsel for Sutherland, as the speakers.
