Staff & Board
D. DICKINSON HENRY, JR. , Executive Director
email@example.com, Phone: 603-226-1009 x202
Dick Henry has been with the Jordan Institute since January of 2007. He brings a broad background in energy and environmental work to Jordan. Dick served for nine years as President of the Audubon Society of New Hampshire, from 1987 to 1995. From 1995 to 1998 he set up and ran the New Hampshire Electric Utility Restructuring Collaborative, a consortium of low-income, small business and environmental interests that developed the groundwork for a systems benefit charge. That charge now produces $20 million per year for electric energy efficiency implementation and another $12 million for low-income fuel assistance. As a consultant Dick worked with Public Service of New Hampshire and developed the original idea to convert one 50 Mega Watt coal-fired power plant to wood using fluidized bed combustion. While at Audubon he was a key participant in the implementation of a Selective Catalytic Reduction system to the Bow Power Plant, the first of its kind in the western hemisphere and now a standard for reducing NOx emissions throughout the country.
Dick graduated from Harvard College in 1970 to co-found and become president of the Habitat Institute of the Environment until 1975. He then joined the technical staff at the Massachusetts Audubon Society from 1976-1979 and was a member of the New England Energy Congress. From 1979 to 1984, Dick directed the Lake Waramaug Task Force that installed the first hypolimnetic withdrawal system in North America to restore that highly eutrophic lake. After his tenure at Audubon and PSNH in the late 1980s and 1990s, Dick began a commercial enterprise to implement sheep contract grazing to manage invasive and exotic vegetation.
Dick has a thorough knowledge of environmental and energy issues and how they intertwine. He has a strong background working with utilities, regulators, government agencies, business interests, the environmental community, foundations, and private individuals. An innovative and original thinker, Dick believes that climate change is the greatest challenge we face and that significant improvement in the built environment plays a key role in meeting the climate change challenge.
