Dave Rogers is the North Carolina Campaign Representative for the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign. He will be presenting on the recent Sierra Club report “A Pathway to a Cleaner Energy Future for North Carolina,” which shows how Duke Energy can reliably meet the state’s energy needs and save their customers money by shifting away from coal and natural gas and towards clean energy.

Dave’s main responsibility is to push Duke Energy away from dirty energy sources like coal and gas and towards cleaner energy technologies like energy efficiency, wind and solar. Additionally, he works with the North Carolina chapter to promote the electrification of the transportation sector here in the state. Dave has worked as an environmental activist and advocate for 17 years, and prior to his joining the Club he was the director of Environment North Carolina. Up until a few months ago, he spent most of his free time running, reading and hiking in the North Carolina woods, but he recently welcomed twins to his family so he doesn’t quite remember what free time is. He’s based in Durham.
