Energy Resilience Centers

April 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Energy resilience centers provide refuge and critical services for communities and businesses when disaster strikes. In the face of devastating wildfires, Cascadia seismic hazard, and other disruptive grid hazards, many communities in Oregon are exploring energy resilience centers as an essential infrastructure to safeguard lives and livelihoods.

Solar Oregon is thrilled to be joined by two prominent experts who have helped communities across the country adopt energy resilience centers. Please join this free webinar and learn how your community can take the first step toward disaster preparedness.

Geoff Oxnam is a microgrid project developer and former utility executive with more than two decades of experience in energy, utilities, telecommunications and infrastructure. He has managed strategic planning, operations, marketing and communications efforts for those industries and environmental organizations. Geoff founded American Microgrid Solutions in 2016 and has grown the company through dozens of microgrid analyses and development projects in 18 states and territories. He earned a BA in History from Williams College and an MBA from The Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan appointed Geoff to chair the Maryland Clean Energy Center board of directors.

Seth Mullendore is vice president and project director for Clean Energy Group, overseeing projects ranging from customer-sited solar and battery storage to the replacement of power plants with clean technologies. Seth works with policy makers, project developers, industry, advocates, and community and environmental justice groups to advance clean energy policies and projects, with a focus on achieving greater access to solar and battery storage technologies for disadvantaged communities. Much of his work pertains to the research and reporting of energy storage technologies, policies, and supporting market structures. Prior to joining Clean Energy Group, Seth served as a Sustainable Energy Fellow with Union of Concerned Scientists and worked with Maine Clean Communities to help advance clean transportation initiatives. Seth holds a M.S. in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Stanford University, and a B.S. in Geosciences from the University of Southern Maine.
