  • Notes 
    • Peter Dreyfuss, 57, passed away October 2, in Denver, Colorado. A celebration of Peter's life will be held 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, November 10, at the Shaughnessy Studio, 331 Southwest Blvd., Kansas City, Mo. Born in Ottumwa, Iowa, Peter was truly a man of the world. Though best known for his work with energy and environmental issues; his friends and colleagues knew him as an advocate, mentor and friend to all who came in contact with him and all who sought his counsel. He began his professional career in Kansas City in 1979, first as program manager for energy and crime prevention programs, then as special assistant to Mayor Richard Berkley overseeing community based programs. In 1984, Peter was named Executive Director of the Metropolitan Energy Center, where he served for 13 years. Under Peter's leadership, the Energy Center evolved into one of the nation's top community based energy and environmental organizations. Peter was called to Washington D.C. in 1997, after accepting an appointment as Special Assistant and senior advisor on community programs. He was named Deputy Chief of Staff for the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in 1999. During his tenure in Washington, he served as DOE staff representative to the President's Community Empowerment Board and the National Coordinator of the Million Roofs Initiative to place solar energy systems on the roofs of 1 million buildings by 2010. In 2000, Peter was named Director of the Chicago Regional Office of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy at the DOE. The Chicago regional office provides technical, financial and other assistance to develop clean energy technologies. He continued his work on behalf of the Million Solar Roofs initiative while in Chicago, organizing the state of Ohio's first Quarterly meeting in 2002. Peter's work with Million Solar Roofs was one of the accomplishments of which he was most proud. Its successful implementation is considered a model for public/private partnerships. A strong believer in collaboration, Peter gave time, talent and treasure to numerous organizations including the National Renewable Energy Laboratory State and Local Advisory Board; the Surface Transportation Policy Project's advisory committee on local involvement in transportation; DOE working group on Weatherization Assistance Program and United Way of America's Energy Advisory Committee. Peter is survived by his brother Stan Dreyfuss; sister-in-law Anita and nephews Marc and Adam of Chicago, Michael Wahle and family of Madison Wisconsin; goddaughter Ellie Goelz of Washington, D.C., and countless friends in Kansas City, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Golden, Colorado.
