What's going on in the renewable power sector? Are utility companies making progress toward cutting carbon emissions and reducing reliance on fossil fuels? What's an IPP?

Join Lincoln Bleveans '89 for an informal conversation about renewables, utility scale power, and careers in this industry on Jan. 6 at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. Pacific. Bring your questions — you can ask him anything!

Lincoln Bleveans has been an executive in the global energy industry for over 25 years, focused on electric power and sustainability. His experience spans the globe and the energy value chain, from emerging technologies to independent power project (IPP) development to utility operations. He is an internationally recognized thought-leader, writer, and speaker on energy, sustainability, and leadership. Bleveans is currently an executive at Burbank Water & Power, an innovative and high-performing electric and water utility in southern California providing reliable, affordable, sustainable power and innovative solutions to media giants and residential customers alike.

None of this would be obvious from his experience at Kenyon. He graduated in 1989 with a modern foreign languages degree (French, Chinese and Japanese) and is a product of Lewis, Caples and the New Apartments. And, you guessed it, he’s married to a fellow Kenyon grad, Meredith Pastore Bleveans ’90. He also has a JD from Northwestern University School of Law, although he has never practiced law.
