Saturday, November 4, 2017 - Minnesota's Renewable Energy Path

Dinner begins at 5:30 pm, with presentation to follow
J. Drake Hamilton - Fresh Energy

J. Drake Hamilton, science policy director at Fresh Energy, is a renowned expert in policy to increase clean energy development and jobs in Minnesota. A widely sought-after public speaker, she frequently addresses business and civic audiences and inspires them to action. J. is often featured in media stories, including in the Star Tribune, New York Times, Washington Post, and on public radio.

Hamilton represented Fresh Energy at the Paris Climate Summit. She was invited by President Barack Obama to meet with him in the White House, to showcase Minnesota’s success in growing clean energy jobs while accomplishing big carbon reductions.

She lives in Saint Paul where she and her husband have a small urban orchard whose fruit—plums, peaches, pears, apples—have won blue ribbons at the Minnesota State Fair.

Hamilton will speak about Minnesota’s leadership on wind and solar energy and our next steps to develop the potential of these clean technologies.
