Green Building Lecture to discuss electric utilities of the future

The next Green Building Lecture Series will teach attendees about technological advancements and falling prices in renewable energy technology, battery storage, sensors and control systems in the transformation of the energy industry and how buildings will interact with the electric grid.

This free program will be from 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, at the Granite Reef Senior Center, 1700 N. Granite Reef Road. RSVPs are not needed, a press release states.

Renewable energy coupled with energy efficiency provides multiple benefits including distributing energy, lowering energy costs and reducing the need to build more electric power plants.

Energy efficiency alone is among the most cost-effective ways to reduce carbon emissions, making it a part of fighting climate change, a release claims.

Senior Energy Consultant and Project Manager Jeff Grout will be the keynote speaker. He has been working on energy efficiency projects with large commercial and industrial customers in Arizona for more than 10 years.

As an active participant in the clean energy revolution, Grout’s current dream is to see Arizona become the solar power leader in the country.
