Biography

The Honorable Will Wynn

Will Wynn advises a number of governments, utilities and private entities on energy policy and sustainability. He served two terms as Mayor of Austin, Texas and for five years chaired the Energy Committee of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

Mr. Wynn also served on the Board of Directors of Austin Energy for nine years, the last six as Chairman. Austin Energy – the ninth largest public power utility in the U.S. – generates over 3,000 megawatts of electricity, has 1,600 employees, serves 400,000 individually ’smart-metered’ accounts and has annual revenue of $1.6 billion. Its fuel mix is 26% natural gas, 24% nuclear, 21% coal and 29% renewables (up from 0% in 2000 when Mr. Wynn began serving on the Board). Its current and approved generation plan has renewables growing to 35% in 2016.

Under Wynn’s leadership Austin has dramatically expanded both the requirements and market penetration of its greenbuilding program; nationally promoted plug-in hybrid electric vehicles; created the country’s most aggressive solar rebate program; pushed for substantial upgrades to the International Energy Conservation Code; mandated energy audits prior to existing home sales; announced its smart-grid initiative; and created an award-winning city-wide climate protection program. Despite Austin’s remarkable growth in population over the past decade, all of the additional ‘demand’ for electricity has been met by conservation, efficiencies and renewables. At over 900 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) in subscriptions, its GreenChoice program has been named the country’s most successful utility-sponsored green energy program for seven consecutive years by the U.S. Department of Energy.

Mr. Wynn received the Alliance to Save Energy’s prestigious Charles H. Percy Public Service Award; was named Energy Executive of the Year by the 9,000-member Association of Energy Engineers; and was honored for Outstanding Achievement at the U.S. Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Awards.

Wynn graduated cum laude with a degree in Environmental Design from Texas A&M University in 1984 and also successfully completed the department’s optional three-year cooperative education work/study program. In 2006 he was named a Distinguished Alumni of their College of Architecture.

Will Wynn’s electricity bill averages less than $50 per month (500 KwH, all from renewable sources); he welcomes questions about his carbon footprint.
