Scott Pogue, CEM

For over twenty years, Scott has been an integral part of the renewable and alternative energy development community. He has founded three successful companies specializing in renewable and alternative energy projects ranging from anaerobic digestion of livestock wastes and manufacturing byproducts, to wood-fired biomass energy production facilities. Prior to this, he was Southeast Regional Manager for Duke Energy’s unregulated subsidiary, Duke Solutions.

Scott's latest development venture, the Remota™ project, is based on a patented, mobile axle-generation system that provides advanced energy harvesting. This novel project harvests the mechanical energy of a spinning trailer axle and converts it to electrical energy via a dynamic charging enhancement to a mobile energy storage system made up of state-of-the-art lithium ion batteries and a proprietary battery management system. Remota™ is a significant advancement over existing mobile power platforms that do not possess this patented energy harvesting feature. This significantly enhances the benefits of energy storage because of increased mobile platform efficiency and on-the-go battery recharging ability.

Previously, Scott served as the Resource Efficiency Manager at Edwards AFB in California, Eglin AFB and at the Air Force Special Operations Command headquarters at Hurlburt Field in Florida, under contract with Sain Engineering Associates.

During his tenure with the Air Force, Scott managed the first major biomass and waste-to-energy feasibility study in the Air Force which resulted in a recommendation for a 20 mW biomass to energy project at Eglin AFB. Scott also was instrumental in bringing an AFCEE-funded High Concentration Anaerobic Bioreactor to Eglin which will process a combination of municipal solid waste and sewage sludge for methane gas capture and energy production. At Edwards and Eglin AFBs, he also developed an energy management-focused training program for installation facility managers. He also was a key member of the Edwards AFB development team that worked to provide a 600 mW solar PV farm in concert with the Federal Bureau of Land Management.

While at AFSOC, Scott pioneered a first-of-its-kind energy information management and dynamic facility benchmarking system (AIMS). AIMS is used to profile and provide facility benchmarking capabilities to measure and compare energy intensity and greenhouse gas production at Department of Defense facilities. He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee and is a Certified Energy Manager.
