Peter Kelly-Detwiler is a 30-year veteran in  the electricity industry, a career that has taken him all the way from Chile to 800 miles north of Montreal. He’s written more than 300 pieces for on the technologies and people powering our modern energy economy, and offers numerous keynotes and workshops on topics ranging from solar energy to hydrogen and batteries. When he’s not talking or writing about energy, you might see him powering himself down the North River or Duxbury Bay, rowing backwards as fast as he can -- often in pursuit of striped bass that tremble at the sound of his oars.
