"Making Solar Power a Reality in California"
Speaker: Steve Zaminski (B.S. '86, mechanical engineering), CEO of Solar Gen 2 LLC
Abstract: What is the most challenging aspect of implementing solar power on a large scale? Politics. Navigating the long and risky journey from proven technology to installed and functioning solar power generation requires not only technical knowledge but also strong interpersonal skills. In this lecture, Clark School alumnus and Board of Visitors member and Wharton MBA Stephen P. Zaminski, CEO of Solar Gen 2, shows how he has learned to work with federal, state and local politicians, utilities, the local community in California's Imperial Valley, the capital market participants and all of the stakeholders who will help determine his company's long-term success. He has much to teach students and faculty members in engineering, business and public policy who dream of realizing alternative energy solutions through entrepreneurship.
