WGL Headlines Climate Strategies Forum
Keynote conversations, training boot camps and breakout sessions address climate change


As the headline sponsor of last week’s Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO) Climate Strategies Forum in Washington, D.C., WGL executives and subject matter experts provided leadership and answers to the challenges of addressing climate change.

WGL Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Dr. Louis J. Hutchinson III addressed a lunchtime gathering of attendees on the topic of Distributed Impact. In his remarks, Dr. Hutchinson described the impact of climate and security concerns on how energy solutions are created, and how companies like WGL are transforming their business to deliver financially viable answers to these challenges. Distributed Impact, aside from providing cost stability through resource diversification and security through independence from the main grid, also allows for the reduction of emissions and the ability to plan energy usage in a way that adheres to current – and foreseen – regulations.

Later in the day, WGL Energy Services Green Products Manager Alicia LaRoche, a LEED® Green Associate, taught an afternoon boot camp session, "Offsets, Markets & Driving Offset Projects." Participants learned how to leverage offsets in order to meet greenhouse gas management, environmental, sustainability and corporate responsibility goals. The session delved into key issues involving quality, procurement, verification, performance and project considerations. 


On Thursday, WGL Energy Systems General Manager John Dukes (shown above) helped lead a breakout session, "Innovative Energy Solutions and Tools Showcase." Mr. Dukes discussed how Distributed Impact is one of the most innovative energy systems and solutions currently available and how its implementation directly impacts an organization’s bottom line, a city's and regional economy and government agency goals.  He also highlighted the roles of efficiency and renewable energy tools in helping businesses to meet greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets. Through the lens of Distributed Impact, Mr. Dukes focused on options for improving energy infrastructures, the current utilization of Distributed Generation to work toward climate change mitigation and the economic benefits of energy and operational efficiency as well as system control and refinement.
