Patton Boggs Partner Appointed to Maryland Clean Energy Center Advisory Board
January 24, 2012
Washington, DC, January 24, 2012 - Patton Boggs’ Washington Partner Joshua Greene was recently appointed to the Maryland Clean Energy Center’s Advisory Board.
Mr. Greene, a former congressional staff member and entrepreneur, will join the Advisory Board’s energy leaders to develop the Center’s 2012 priorities and initiatives. Created in 2008, the Maryland Clean Energy Center was established to promote the development of the energy economy through programs that drive business growth, create “green collar” jobs, and ensure that Maryland’s residents have access to affordable clean energy technologies, products and services.
With a focus on energy and environmental policy, Mr. Greene helps clients achieve their goals before Congress, regulatory agencies and state and local governments. He concentrates in renewable and alternative energy development, energy efficiency, technology, sustainability and corporate counseling. Mr. Greene’s contributions to the development of landmark legislation have enabled him to establish relationships within the environmental, municipal and business communities. His counsel extends to financial services regulation, including environmental and energy commodities in the United States and abroad. He also serves as the mid-Atlantic regional director for the nonprofit organization Cleantech Open. Mr. Greene is extremely active in his community, where he sits on the boards of both civic and charitable organizations, including the Renewable Energy Initiative, the Chesapeake Crescent Initiative and the Anne Arundel County (Maryland) Charter Review Commission.
“Josh is among the region’s best and brightest in the expanding clean energy sector and a natural extension of the Maryland Clean Energy Center’s Advisory Board,” said Edward Newberry, managing partner of Patton Boggs. “The Board will benefit greatly from his invaluable counsel, and his service reflects the firm’s commitment to community development.”
Other members of the Maryland Clean Energy Center’s Advisory Board include regional leaders such as Standard Solar’s Tony Clifford, Jean Paul Crouzoulon of AREVA Renewables, Robert Wallace of BITH Group Technologies, Harry Warren of Washington Gas Energy Services, and Charles Washington Jr. of PEPCO.
