Our Guest Speaker –

Ken Hellberg is a Building Performance Specialist at Penn College’s National Sustainable Structures Center, where he drives improved energy efficiency performance in commercial and industrial facilities by expanding energy efficiency training throughout the mid-Atlantic region.

He pursued a degree in Energy and Sustainability Policy (ESP) with Penn State as he worked full time in the oil and gas industry, and now seeks to help society transition to a more sustainable, independent energy future while mitigating climate change and adapting for its impacts.

One of his proudest accomplishments includes co-authoring the Annex in The Handbook of Carbon Accounting with Arnaud Brohè, CEO of CO2logic Inc. He is currently pursuing an MBA and an MS in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship with Temple University’s Fox School of Business.
