Congrats to our Vice President, Perry Kuznar! Perry was just elected Vice Chair of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Renewable Energy Advisory Committee.
Perry takes over the Vice Chair position from Fred Dreher, VP of Franklin Energy of Port Washington, Wisconsin, who was elected Committee Chair at the meeting. Both Perry and Fred served under committee chair Ron Meissen, Senior Director of Sustainability for Baxter International of Deerfield, Illinois.
This group of regional business and industry representatives has been assisting university faculty and administration on the development of a new Sustainable and Renewable Energy Systems Major, which just received approval by the University Of Wisconsin System Board Of Regents.
Perry is a UW-Platteville alumnus with an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Wisconsin. He’s actively engaged in promoting improvements in hands-on energy education and we know he’ll do a great job in assisting the development of this new program.
