Great speakers every month that provoke your mind. This month the topic is “Reducing Transportation Pollution in the US & Beyond.” We will have the opportunity to learn about the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project and Clean Engines, Inc.
More about the Presenters :
Bill Kramer is the founder/CEO of Clean Engines Inc., whose mission is to be the global leader in reducing pollution from dirty engines, focusing on emerging markets and low-income base of the economic pyramid or BOP populations. With operations in Metro Manila, Philippines, CEI is retrofitting engines in highly-polluting two-stroke motorcycle “Tuk Tuks” that serve as taxis and delivery vehicles, reducing tailpipe pollution by 80 percent. Sustainable transportation is a key issue for rapidly urbanizing, developing economies.
Will Toor is the Director of Transportation Programs at SWEEP, which has recently completed an analysis of the emissions benefits of electric vehicles compared to natural gas and gasoline vehicles for Colorado and surrounding states as well as a scorecard grading for the 6 Southwestern states on the policies they have in place to promote the adoptions of electric vehicles. Toor will also discuss the remarkable suite of electric vehicle bills passed by the Colorado legislature this spring.
As always, there will be great beer, stimulating conversation and valuable networking.
This is a free monthly networking forum to discuss how local universities, business, not-for-profit organizations, and governmental agencies have incorporated and defined sustainability in innovative and progressive ways. Attendance is always high and engaged (even if there is not a high RSVP level seen on this site.) Held at the Wynkoop Brewery. You can find information on past presentations on the WC web site.
I hope you’ll be able to join us for these fun, informative events. Free food, good beer and stimulating conversation!
