The NW Energy Coalition has recognized the late Bruce Speight for his action and advocacy.

On Dec. 2, Bruce's wife, Heidi, accepted the Headwaters Award on his behalf at the coalition's annual Clean Energy Awards Reception. As Environment Washington’s state director, Bruce worked with the coalition to achieve several clean energy milestones, including the passage of Washington’s 100 percent clean electricity bill, which committed the state’s utilities to obtain 100 percent of their electricity from carbon-free sources by 2045.

“The members of the NW Energy Coalition have given our Headwaters Award to Bruce for his commitment to always go above and beyond the call in advancing clean energy solutions and addressing head-on the impacts of climate change on Washington communities and the environment,” said NW Energy Coalition’s Kat Plimpton.

Bruce passed away in September and is deeply missed by his family and many friends and colleagues.
