Washington, D.C. – The Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) is pleased to welcome the following new members:

  • Brightmark, based in San Francisco, CA, is a global waste solutions company with a mission to reimagine waste. The company takes a holistic, closed loop, circular economy approach to its business, through the deployment of disruptive, breakthrough waste-to-energy solutions focused on plastics renewal (plastic waste-to-fuel) and renewable natural gas (organic waste-to-fuel).
  • Carlisle Construction Materials LLC (CCM), headquartered in Carlisle, PA, is a diversified manufacturer and supplier of premium building products and related technologies for the commercial and residential construction markets. CCM supplies innovative and energy-efficient building products for commercial and residential markets.

Tenaska has developed, managed and/or operated approximately 22 gigawatts (GW) of natural gas-fueled and renewable generation. Affiliates Tenaska Marketing Ventures and Tenaska Power Services are industry leaders in energy marketing.

“This is an exciting time to be growing our coalition. These new members are representative of the geographic, technological and business diversity of the clean energy economy in America that the BCSE represents,” said BCSE President Lisa Jacobson.

“Brightmark is excited to be working with BCSE, one of Washington, D.C.’s preeminent sustainable energy and energy efficiency organizations.  We recognize the benefits of working with an organization like BCSE as their focus aligns with our company’s goals on recycling organic and plastic waste,” said Bob Powell, CEO of Brightmark.

“On behalf of CCM, I look forward to working with the BCSE to achieve meaningful carbon emission reductions through sustainable building practices.  This partnership is the latest initiative in Carlisle’s commitment to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG),” said Robert Reale, Director of Marketing Communications, Carlisle Construction Materials.

“Tenaska’s business aligns with the BCSE’s focus on advancing the deployment of a broad portfolio of clean energy solutions to meet our country’s energy needs. We look forward to bringing our diverse technology experience with solar, wind and energy storage – combined with the reliability of natural gas – to the BCSE, an established voice in policy discussions,” said Tenaska CEO and Vice Chairman Jerry Crouse.

“The addition of these new members strengthens our coalition as we advocate for practical, bipartisan policy to deploy affordable, reliable and sustainable energy for America,” noted Emily Duncan, BCSE Chairman of the Board and head of the Washington office for National Grid US.
