District Energy: The Solution for Rapidly Decarbonizing Urban Cores and Campuses
In this session presented by industry-leading sustainability expert Kevin Hagerty, Deputy CEO and COO at Vicinity Energy, we will examine why district energy systems are a powerful resource to rapidly decarbonizing cities at scale, and how they are doing so through electrification. We will learn from notable success stories in Europe, evaluate the legislative action being taken to decarbonize cities across the U.S. today, and address how organizations can meet these requirements.
Kevin Hagerty is currently serving as Vicinity’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Deputy CEO. Kevin will drive the transition to electrification and the delivery of eSteam™ across our systems and work closely with Vicinity’s Chief Executive Officer Bill DiCroce to continue elevating Vicinity’s position as the leader for the decarbonization of North American cities lucky enough to hold district energy systems.
In his former role as Chief Technical Officer (CTO), Kevin oversaw the Information Technology (IT), Engineering, Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S), and Technical teams to drive technical performance and innovation and support operations. Kevin has over 20 years of experience in the power industry and had previously worked for Veolia in senior leadership positions for nearly 10 years.
