NEWS - Cenergistic Energy Specialist for UK Named Fulbright Scholar

Monday, July 24, 2017

LEXINGTON, KY — While most companies hate to see a valued staff member leave, Cenergistic is proudly releasing Zach Tyler to accept a prestigious opportunity — a Fulbright Research Grant.

Tyler will study the environment — specifically tree growth patterns — in Brazil beginning February 2018.

He’ll return to a country he first visited during a previous exchange program during his junior year at UK. Tyler spent seven months in Brazil studying energy policy, photo voltaic, language, reforestation and environmental issues.

A Biosystems engineering graduate of UK, Tyler joined Cenergistic in August 2016 as one of the eight Energy Specialists assigned to University of Kentucky. He was drawn to the position because he prioritizes sustainability, especially when approached economically. He’s always been interested in reducing waste on his home campus, and appreciated the blend of working with people and the technical work. He felt it suited him better than some conventional engineering positions.

Dr. William S. Spears, Cenergistic Chairman and Founder, said he’s not surprised to find he has a Fulbright Scholar on staff. “I think it speaks to the caliber of the people we hire,” he said. “We look for the best person for every position and work to develop each one to his or her fullest potential.”

“I congratulate Zach on this outstanding accomplishment and wish him all the best,” Spears said. “We’re looking forward to his return. We couldn’t be more proud of him.”
