350 Humboldt Presents A Zoom Talk With Schatz Founding Director Peter Lehman
The North Coast’s plan for zero-emission transportation—what it is, what it will mean to the county, and how it paves the way for a clean, green transit and transportation future.
Peter Lehman is the founding director of the Schatz Energy Research Center. His research interests include green hydrogen and microgrids. He served as the lead faculty researcher for the Redwood Coast Airport Microgrid at the airport. In 2021 he was inducted into the California Energy Commission’s Clean Energy Hall of Fame in recognition of his lifetime of research advances in clean energy. He recently helped the Humboldt Transit Authority apply for and win a $38.7 million grant to fund a fleet of zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell electric buses to serve local routes and connect riders to Mendocino County and, ultimately, the San Francisco Bay Area. This project, including the Eureka Regional Transit and Housing Center (EaRTH Center), is the subject of his talk for the 350 Humboldt Speakers’ Series. There will be lots of time for questions and discussion.
