rotary1 300PADUCAH, Ky. (9/3/13) – The Paducah Rotary Club will be hosting Dr. Len Peters, Secretary of Energy and Environment, at its lunch meeting at 12:10pm on September 4, 2013, in the Myre River Room of the Carson Four Rivers Performing Arts Center.
 
Dr. Peters will be addressing energy issues in western Kentucky, specifically the status of the USEC site here in Paducah.
 
Appointed by Governor Steve Beshear in 2008 to oversee Kentucky’s energy, environmental protection, and natural resources programs, he has developed and implemented Kentucky’s first comprehensive strategic energy plan to address the state’s growing demands for energy in an environmentally sustainable and economically effective manner. He also has been instrumental in creating a unique partnership opportunity among the Argonne National Laboratory, the Commonwealth, and two of the state’s leading research institutions—the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville—to advance lithium battery manufacturing research and development.
 
Dr. Peters is a recognized leader in research, academia and management. He served at the Battelle Memorial Institute, a leading nonprofit applied science and technology development company, where he was senior vice president and director of the Pacific Northwest National laboratory. From 2003-2006, Dr. Peters led the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National laboratory’s 4200 staff at the multi-program national laboratory to apply their broad scientific and technical capabilities, not only to the mission of DOE’s Office of Science, but also to those of DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Defense, the Department of Defense, and other agencies.
