Tyler Huebner, executive director of RENEW Wisconsin, will speak on “Renewable Energy for a Stronger Wisconsin” for the September program of the Climate Change Coalition of Door County. The program will begin at 7 pm on Sept. 7, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Ephraim. It is free and open to the public.
RENEW Wisconsin is a state-based renewable energy advocacy nonprofit focused on advancing wind, solar, bioenergy, hydropower and smart energy usage. In 2015, Huebner was named among the Midwest Energy News’ “40 Under 40” recognizing 40 of the best clean energy leaders under age 40 from throughout the Midwest.
Huebner’s talk will highlight the state’s growing solar energy market and how wind power and farm digesters can also be harnessed to strengthen Wisconsin.
Before joining RENEW Wisconsin in 2013, Huebner managed grants and grantees in low-income weatherization programs at the U.S. Department of Energy and the State of Wisconsin Division of Energy Services, and was an energy efficiency consultant for the venture capital and consulting firm ICF International. He holds engineering degrees from the University of Iowa and Stanford University.
