Dr. Abramson is one of EPIcenter’s Global Advisors, a group of new energy thought leaders who advise on EPIcenter’s leadership role within the global new energy community. The Global Advisors work closely with the EPIcenter Board of Directors and staff to advance the mission of EPIcenter as a new energy hub in San Antonio.
Dr. Abramson is President of the Clean Energy Business Network, an association of 3,000+ business leaders of small- to medium-size companies providing technologies and services in energy efficiency, renewable energy, natural gas, or other advanced energy and transportation sectors. Lynn leads the CEBN’s efforts to serve as a collective voice before policymakers empowering small clean energy businesses, and helps these companies navigate funding, networking, and business development opportunities.
By launching the Global Lecture Series, EPIcenter continues putting its mission in motion and embracing its role as a thought leader. The lecture series is a complement to its annual Summit (launched June 2017) and the New Energy Incubator and Accelerator (launched in December 2017.)
EPIcenter is flipping the switch on an historic 1909 power plant by transforming it into a world-class center that will be the hub for new energy technology innovation, education and community engagement, and entrepreneurial incubation and ideation. The EPI stands for Energy, Partnerships and Innovation. Learn more at www.epicenterus.org.
