Fred is principal of WinSol.org specializing in energy permaculture, community microgrids and in adapting appropriate, leading-edge processes and technologies for the built environment. He has designed and built numerous solar homes, his current project is a zero operating cost and totally closed loop home following cradle-to-cradle™principles.
Over the past 30 years, Mr. Klammt has been a project leader and director for various CREF departments in over 40 Fortune 100 companies. Fred was one of California’s first Certified Energy Auditor in 1978, and is a certified Baldrige Certified Quality Auditor for the State of California and Senate Productivity Awards.
On a personal note, Fred has designed and owner built three passive solar homes, his currently being totally off the grid, closed loop and net-zero operating cost.
His expertise includes:
- Community microgrids
- Energy permaculture
- Living Energies
- Cradle to Cradle™ evaluations and analysis
• Industrial Ecology process analyses • Systems Dynamic Modeling • Carbon + Embedded Energy Analyses + Benchmarking • Lo-Cost Solar systems • Organizational Development • Financial and LCA analysis • Training + Strategic Planning
Fred has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wyoming and an Associates in Electromechanical from Southern Illinois University. Fred’s personal activities include working with Architects for Humanity, Engineers without Borders, Sierra Club Maidu Chapter Board of Directors and Habitat for Humanity.
