Executive Director of the Environmental & Energy Technology Council of Maine (E2Tech) Jeff Marks and BRIBURN Architect Chris Briley were in the TideSmart Talk with Stevoe studio to discuss the upcoming Greendrinks held at our TideSmart Global campus on Tuesday, February 10, 2015.
Marks is Executive Director of the Environmental and Energy Technology Council of Maine (E2Tech). Before joining E2Tech, Marks was Deputy Director of the Maine Governor’s Energy Office where he advised Governor LePage, Legislature and State agencies on energy policy options, development and implementation; participated in Legislative hearings and work sessions, on boards and committees and before constituents, businesses, non-profits and federal and local government officials; managed the State Energy Program; and provided policy, financing and technical support for businesses, non-profits and government entities.
The Environmental & Energy Technology Council of Maine (E2Tech) seeks to build and expand the State’s environmental, energy, and clean technology sectors. E2Tech acts as a catalyst to stimulate growth in this sector by facilitating networking, serving as a clearinghouse for objective information, and leading efforts to promote the sector.
Briley is a founding partner and is the principal architect at Briburn. In late 2012 he teamed up with Architect Harry Hepburn and together they founded Briburn (which got its name by combining their last names). Together they practice “architecture for life”, specializing in energy efficient, environmentally friendly design.
Briburn was founded in January 2013, and is committed to sustainable design. They understand the many tasks required to create a successful project, they are thoughtful, innovative thinkers, often developing unique ideas specific to your projects needs. Currently Briburn is completing a passivhaus / net zero home in Saco, a sustainable Veterinary Clinic in Cumberland, a Net Zero home in Parsonsfield, as well as several other sustainable residential projects.
