COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Environmental Professionals Network hosts its next monthly breakfast program, “Challenges and Opportunities: Achieving Ohio’s Clean Energy Potential,” from 7:15-9:30 a.m. on Sept. 9 at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center, 2201 Fred Taylor Drive, on Ohio State University’s Columbus campus.
David Hanselmann, network coordinator and a lecturer in Ohio State’s School of Environment and Natural Resources, said the program will focus on how Ohio can continue its green energy progress following the recent approval of Senate Bill 310, which puts a two-year freeze on the state’s renewable energy standards.
The network is a service of SENR, in turn part of the university’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
Slated to speak at the event are:
- Kate Bartter, interim director of Ohio State’s Office of Energy and Environment, who also will moderate the discussion.
- Ted Ford, president and CEO of Ohio Advanced Energy Economy.
- Jack Shaner, assistant director of the Ohio Environmental Council.
- Andy Boatright, city of Westerville electric utility manager.
The program includes a full breakfast and is open to both members and nonmembers of the network. Registration costs $10 or $15, depending on payment method.
