Public Speaking on Energy and Environment Issues

Vignette Peter.jpg

My public speaking gigs typically focus on energy and environmental issues. While some of these presentations have been made at conferences and events I have also helped organize, I am also a seasoned interviewee for radio and TV stations. Among the public relations firms that I have partnered with are The Better World Group and Caroline O' Connell Public Relations.

Most of my public speaking gigs these days are as a Navigant Research representative talking about microgrids. Recent presentations have taken place in locations as diverse as Alaska, Barcelona, Spain, Ontario, Canada. Other scheduled talks in 2015 include gigs in Denmark, Chicago and San Diego. Please see the Navigant Research section of this website for the most up-to-date information.

As President of Pathfinder Communications, and a book author, I have appeared on several radio and TV shows.
