Thursday GreenDrinks NewWest will have two guests speakers on the topic of “Energy and Sustainability“: Norm Connolly, Community Energy Manager with the City of New Westminster and Nigel Protter, Executive Director and CEO of BC Sustainable Energy Association.
Norm Connolly, who runs the City’s Energy Save New West program, will talk about what it’s like for homeowners and businesses to see their energy picture. Nigel Protter’s topic, “Sorting out What Actually Matters in Energy Sustainability,” will address the global perspective.
Connolly is an urban planning professional with a Masters in Environmental Design. His experience includes working in federal, municipal and non-profit sectors, in which he specializes in policy and planning for the creation of resilient, low-carbon and livable communities and the integrated design of durable, energy-efficient, and affordable housing.
Protter is a renewable energy champion, wave energy developer and project manager. With an MBA from SFU, he specialized in innovation and sustainability in the electricity sector and studied energy policy and practice in BC compared with jurisdictions around the world.
GreenDrinks NewWest is open to anyone interested in environment and sustainability issues who welcomes socializing with like-minded people. The emphasis is on discussing new ideas and creating connections with others while challenging everyone to think globally and act locally. The event is free, but food and drinks can be purchased by participants.
Everyone needs energy to live, which means looking at our energy use is an essential component of creating a sustainable future.
