MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota, November 4, 2010 – Jeremy Kalin today announced the launch of Eutectics Consulting LLC, a consulting company developing clean energy solutions for states, regions and business leaders across the United States. Kalin is a retiring state lawmaker who has gained national accolades for his work on clean energy policy.

“The U.S. energy trade deficit is now more than one billion dollars a day, and communities are eager to invest more of those funds in job creation and clean energy projects here at home” said Jeremy Kalin, founder and principal.

“Eutectics Consulting will bring substantial clean energy experience to help states and communities thrive in the growing clean energy economy, and help spur faster job growth,” Kalin said. “From crafting a state’s or a region’s clean energy policy road maps to connecting investors with clean energy innovators, Eutectics will provide significant value to public entities and to private-sector entrepreneurs.”

Eutectics Consulting LLC will leverage Kalin’s experience in clean energy policy and economic development. Kalin is completing his second term in the Minnesota House of Representatives where he gained national recognition for his work on clean energy policy. As Chair of the national Coalition of Legislators for Energy Action Now (CLEAN), Kalin has worked closely with the Obama administration, national clean energy advocates and clean tech innovators.
