Governor Jay Inslee presented the first annual David & Patricia Giuliani Clean Energy Entrepreneur Award to Kenworth Truck Company. The second award winner was Myno Carbon.
The third award presentation will be at our upcoming Future of Carbon Policy Forum, and nominations are now open.
The award, named after our organization’s founder and his wife, recognizes meaningful advances in clean energy innovation. With so much clean energy innovation in Washington state, this year’s winner will earn significant bragging rights, and follow in the footsteps of two headline makers:
Kenworth was a highlight at the Green Transportation Summit and Expo in Tacoma, with its hydrogen fuel cell T680 FCEV.
Myno Carbon was in the news recently for an innovative partnership with the state’s Department of Natural Resources to sequester carbon and reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires in Eastern Washington, using slash residuals from DNR-managed timberlands to produce renewable electricity and biochar.
