The Tennessee Advanced Energy Business Council is continuing its new, three-part series “Ask Me Anything” featuring some of Tennessee’s most prominent energy CEOs with a trip down to Chattanooga.
On Tuesday, August 13 at The Edney Innovation Center, attendees will have the opportunity to ask anything from Ben Edgar, President and Founder of White Harvest Energy.
These “Ask Me Anything” sessions provide intimate, candid discussions between attendees and energy CEOs where attendees can “ask anything” related to business, strategy, work-life balance and everything in between.
The sessions will consists of live questions with a moderator as well as questions sent in prior to the event via social media. We will have announcements leading up to the event of when we’ll be accepting those questions, so look out for these on our LinkedIn Page, Facebook Page or Twitter Page.

Edgar’s company played a significant role in implementing Erlanger Medical Center’s 8MW CHP system to the hospital by working alongside 2G Energy, which supplied the CHP equipment.
2G Energy Inc., a subsidiary of 2G Energy AG in Germany, is a CHP cogeneration specialist offering cogeneration systems in 50 to 2,000 kW power range. The company has over 5,000 systems installed worldwide, and its U.S. headquarters is located in St. Augustine, Florida.
Unlike individually engineered CHP plants, 2G Energy’s modular systems make installation easier and incorporate components geared towards each other which made the construction phase of the project complete within a matter of months. Good news for Erlanger.
Erlanger’s new combined heat and power (CHP) system is designed to capture and reuse all of the steam generated in several gas-fired power generators to produce electricity for lighting and appliances, hot water for laundry and showers, steam for building heat and chilled water for air conditioning across Erlanger’s sprawling campus
White Harvest Energy came to Erlanger with the prospect of landing a $6.75 million TVA grant, which the federal utility included in its 2011 consent agreement with EPA and environmental groups as part of $350 million allocated for clean energy projects to generate electricity with less of a carbon footprint and with fewer air emissions.
White Harvest Energy served as the developer and operator of the project and continues some of those duties since completion.
In May, Silicon Ranch Corporation hosted the first-part of the series with Co-Founder and CEO Matt Kisber.
We hope you’ll join us on August 13!
