Event Background

The closing of the Brunswick Naval Air Station leaves behind over 3,000 acres of prime real estate with close to 2 million square feet of commercial and industrial space, a world class aviation complex, and 1,000 acres of open space. Re-named Brunswick Landing, the former military base is envisioned to be a high-tech business campus that will include the Maine Advanced Technology and Engineering Center and the Brunswick Renewable Energy Center. 

Join E2Tech and Brunswick Landing's administrator, Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority (MRRA), for a special look at Maine’s renewable energy future and to explore a center for clean tech research and development, manufacturing, testing, company incubation and productive operation of renewable energy technologies and services.  

Speaker

Speaker: Scott HuffmanNational Renewable Energy Laboratory. Scott has worked for the last 30 years in the field of energy technologies.  Originally working in the 1980s in the first wave of solar and renewables, and then in the field of energy efficiency and energy engineering in the 1990s for Trane. Starting in 2008 he began work on the Masdar city project, slated to be the first solar powered carbon neutral city in the world about an hour from Dubai in Abu Dhabi.  He’s also collaborated with some of the leading biologists in the world designing “living systems”, including integrated waste, biofuel, and food bio-refineries as well as using biological technologies to replace mechanical and chemical processes. Currently he’s serving as a Senior Engineer with NREL’s Integrated Applications Center providing technical assistance, evaluation, and implementation consulting.  He’s also serves as NREL’s lead for the Middle East region and has worked on major projects for the governments of Saudi Arabia and Colombia.
