As president of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE), Vice Admiral Dennis McGinn (Ret.) is a strong advocate for innovative government policy, public and private partnerships, and investments that will promote clean energy growth.
At the GW Moving the Planet Forward Innovation Summit on April 17, 2012, Admiral McGinn participated in a panel discussing the future of the renewable industry and Planet Forward was able to catch up him backstage.
Admiral McGinn believes that the greatest innovation has been the way that different types of renewable energy are being deployed. He says that the time to move forward in creating a "21st century clean energy portfolio" is now.
