John Dunaway and Greg Copley were recently hired by the CAER to extend our reach to the Western and Eastern parts of the Commonwealth. John will be located in Henderson, while Greg maintains the West Liberty office. The goal of this new endeavor is to assist local governments and industry in the development of energy projects by introducing them to the capabilities of the Center as well as the University as a whole.
John has been very active in the development of an Energy Board for the western KY counties of Henderson, Webster and Union. The goal of the Board is to develop an implementation plan that positions the tri-county area for the development of energy projects. Prior to these activities John was CEO of Sanderfur Industries, a local Humane Society and a local Hospice organization. He has a Bachelor of Arts and a Doctorate of Ministry degree and started and served several churches in his career as a minister.
Greg has nearly 30 years experience dealing with environmental issues including air pollution, hazardous material spills, asbestos abatement and compliance assistance to small businesses. Most recently he served as director of the nationally recognized Kentucky Business Environmental Assistance Program (KBEAP). In that capacity he and his staff assisted Kentucky’s small businesses in meeting environmental obligations. Prior to KBEAP, Greg worked in the Kentucky Division for Air Quality as an inspector, responded to hazardous material spills, asbestos abatement coordinator and program planning supervisor. He has a B.S. in Biology and a MBA.
