KPPC’s industrial and commercial clients began asking the Center for help in understanding and addressing energy efficiency at their facilities in response to rising energy costs. In response, and with state and federal support, KPPC developed a number of programs to identify E2 opportunities for energy-intensive facilities and to help them build self-sustaining energy management programs.
During this webinar, executive director Cam Metcalf and technical services program manager Richard Meisenhelder will discuss KPPC’s nationally-recognized efforts that help Kentucky industries make significant, long-term reductions in their energy usage:
• Kentucky Save Energy Now
• Kentucky Energy Alliance
• Northeast Demonstration Project
Cam Metcalf is a national leader in pollution prevention and energy efficiency technical assistance, training and applied research with a career that spans more than 30 years. He joined KPPC as Executive Director in 1995. His experience in P2 evolution and sustainability also include tenures at the University of Tennessee’s Center for Industrial Services, as a Training Manager and Waste Reduction Engineer; the University of North Carolina-Asheville, as Director of both the Environmental Quality Institute and the Project FireHAT-Hazardous Awareness Teamwork; and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, as an Environmental and Physical Scientist.
Richard Meisenhelder served as KPPC’s Technical Coordinator for almost five years, organizing teams comprised of engineers and other technical staff to perform up to fifty P2 and E2 assessments per year. He then worked for three years as a Project Engineer at Fellon-McCord & Associates, which at the time was a consulting arm of Constellation Energy, the largest independent energy provider in the U.S. In 2008, Mr. Meisenhelder returned to KPPC to serve as Project Manager for Environmental Sustainability Services, providing oversight to KPPC’s technical personnel servicing the industrial, commercial and institutional sectors.
