Austin Energy’s general manager extraordinaire, the much revered and very inspiring Roger Duncan, retired yesterday after more than 30 years of local public service. During his Austin-centric career Roger achieved international acclaim for green utility implementation, co-founding one of the world’s most progressive energy efficiency programs (intially dubbed "Energy Star" in the 80’s before the federal government took the name), co-creating THE WORLD’S FIRST green building program (no kidding), and achieving too many other things to list.

In many ways Roger is responsible for motivating people like me to believe we can do more.

And he encourages it.

Big thanks to Roger: a great leader and civil servant. Wishing Mr. Duncan and his family a very happy and fulfilling future.
