on Aug 02 in News posted , , , , by chandlerelp

We are pleased to announce that our managing partner, Ross Harding has been selected to succeed Dean Alford as the Pine 2 Energy (P2E) Coalition Co-Chair.

The Pine 2 Energy Coalition includes forest and farm landowners and businesses, foresters, universities, environmental and conservation organizations, investors, energy developers, government agencies and other individuals and companies working to promote and expand the development of pine biomass to energy.  The Coalition supports utilizing sustainable technology to produce electricity, ethanol, industrial heat, wood pellets and other forms of energy from pine biomass.

Pine 2 Energy is a diverse group of Georgia-based companies and organizations who take pride in Georgia ’s abundance of forests and other natural resources.  The Coalition focuses on pine because of its prevalence in Georgia and the opportunity for Georgians to grow, consume, and otherwise benefit from their stewardship of these pine forests.

At meetings, members discuss key issues surrounding the industry.  Ross has recently been very instrumental in lining up speakers for meetings- including Georgia Congressman John Barrow.  We are certain that Ross’s expertise on the biomass and clean tech industry will prove to be a valuable asset to the P2E group, and we look forward to see what great things will result from this organization.
