E4 Carolinas Expands its South Carolina Presence to Support Clean Energy

South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance Members Support

E4 Carolinas, a longtime collaborator with the South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance, is expanding E4 Carolinas’ South Carolina presence to provide continuous and enhanced clean energy promotion in South Carolina.

In furtherance of that expansion, the E4 Carolinas Board of Directors has created a task force for South Carolina Clean Energy Industries and will invite various South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance members, as well as E4 Carolinas Board members to join the Task Force. The Task Force will specifically focus on energy created from low-carbon fuel sources, such as renewables, hydrogen, and nuclear. Weston Adams, an E4 Carolinas Board of Directors member and the current Chair of the South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance Board of Directors will Co-Chair the Task Force.

Jeffrey S. Merrifield, E4 Carolinas Board of Directors Chairman, stated that “this undertaking builds on E4 Carolinas’ mission to serve the Carolina energy industry and will be supported by E4 Carolinas’ recently established Columbia office on the University of South Carolina campus. We are pleased to expand our support for all forms of clean energy in South Carolina”.

David Doctor, E4 Carolinas’ Chief Executive Officer added, “With the blessing of the South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance, E4 Carolinas intends to employ Bonnie Loomis, the current SCCEBA Executive Director, to provide the greatest opportunity for that expansion and continuity of the promotion of South Carolina clean energy industries. Effective July 1st, Bonnie will serve as E4 Carolinas’ South Carolina Managing Director. The E4 Carolinas Board of Directors will evaluate adding events that compliment those made popular by SCCEBA as well as new E4 Carolinas events in South Carolina”.

The Task Force is charged with engaging, aligning and promoting all South Carolina clean energy industries to attract and retain the foremost clean energy companies, innovators and leaders; to accelerate economic growth; to make efficient use of energy resources; and to care for our environment, resulting in increased employment, productivity and prosperity. Once employed by E4 Carolinas, Bonnie Loomis will engage with potential additional South Carolina members of E4 Carolinas, to enlist them in the initiative.
