Third Thursday Lunch
“Kentucky’s Renewable Energy Future”
David Brown Kinloch

Climate Change can only be stopped by moving away from fossil fuel and to Renewable Energy. The Renewable Energy revolution has begun, but not so much in Kentucky. Why has Kentucky been so slow to embrace Renewable Energy? David Brown Kinloch has been working in renewable energy development in Kentucky for the last 37 years, primarily in small hydropower
development. Dave will share some of his successful projects and lay out a path to a clean energy future for Kentucky.
