Circular Economy, Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy, Waste-to-Energy

Over more than 20 years in federal and state government affairs, Ted has earned a reputation for developing bipartisan policy solutions that drive investment in clean technologies. He is a leading voice on waste-to-energy (WTE), promoting WTE technology to maximize the recovery of materials and energy from any system.

As a strategic advisor on energy efficiency and the Clean Power Plan, Ted has co-authored frequently-cited white papers and public comments on compliance strategies targeted to overcoming energy efficiency market barriers.

Ted’s credits include working extensively on the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act, which was signed into law on January 11, 2002. It has unleashed investment in abandoned and under-utilized properties.
