Interview with Eric Woodroof

Speaker Eric Woodroof, PhD., is the youngest member of 2 Halls of Fame… advancing energy sustainability all over the world! Learn about what got him interested in energy management, what sustainability means, and more in this interview!

What got you interested in energy management?
While watching “Dances with Wolves”, I wanted to do something that “helped” our environment. After wars… energy consumption has had the most destructive impact on our planet… so it seemed like a problem worth devoting my life to.

 

How have things changed since you started working with energy management?
The “information age” and renewable energy advancements have made for cleaner energy production, yet there is still a long way to go… but at least more people are aware of the problem.

 

What does sustainability mean to you?
Providing the needs of today… without sacrificing tomorrow.

 

What are your biggest goals in your life/career currently?
I would like to see more energy efficiency/conservation projects get done… when people understand how easy it is, they are better able to take action. Most projects have financial returns that are 2-3 times better than Wall Street… and have less volatility!

 

Who is your role model?
Al Gore has done a lot to share climate data, and for little economic gain… I find that admirable.

 

How much does humor factor into your keynotes and other speaking engagements?
Humor is a critical “ice breaker” on these difficult topics/challenges. Often in talks, I will engage an audience with humor, then depress them with the data… but then lift them up by showing how they can be a part of the solution… but humor throughout the journey keeps them listening.
