Ep 09: Leading Sustainable Cities w/ Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst
In this week’s episode, Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst shares the ways sustainability is implemented in the city. Just a few examples: championing energy efficiency in municipal buildings, testing a Tesla electric car as a police cruiser, to visionary concepts such as a micro-grid and battery storage. These initiatives deliver sustainability not only for the environment, but also financial sustainability for the citizens of Brookhaven. Brookhaven’s strong leadership during the recent coronavirus pandemic has been applauded, and followed by others regionally. Could Brookhaven’s leadership on public health and sustainability, eventually lead us to say “As Brookhaven does, so does the State of Georgia?”Episode Highlights:7:42 Green Building and Sustainability in Brookhaven11:29 Envisioning Micro-grid, Generation & Storage of Renewables13:47 Trending Renewables in Georgia & What is Driving it18:52 Electric Vehicle Benefits & Vehicle to Grid21:19 The Potential of Electric School Buses22:56 Deep Dive on Brookhaven's Tesla Police CruiserFind Mayor Ernst on Facebook or at john.ernst@brookhaven ga.govFind John during his day job at Ernst Legal on Facebook or email@example.com
