Dr. Robert Meyer, seen here driving a hydrogen-powered car at the 2018 Smart Energy Week Conference in Los Angeles, has 44 years of experience in radiation protection, environmental science and alternative energy, beginning his career on the environmental research staff at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Prior to receiving an M.S. and Ph.D. at Colorado State University, he served as a line officer in the U.S. Navy. Over the decades he has managed large projects throughout the United States. He has been a consultant to the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna and to the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements, a member of the National Academy of Sciences Board on Radioactive Waste Management and the U.S. EPA’s Science Advisory Board Radiation Advisory Committee. He holds a U.S patent on the RTRAK gamma radiation scanning system. A decade ago, he built a solar power system that provides 20 reliable amps to the 110-volt outlets in his off-grid cabin high in the Rockies foothills. He’d like to extend that system to power a planet.
