Washington, D.C. – It is with deep sadness that the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) observes the passing of retired Marine Lt. Col. William “Bill” Holmberg. He was 88.

At various times throughout his career, he served on ACORE’s Board of Directors, Advisory Board and staff.
"Bill was a friend and mentor to me and many others in renewable energy. We will miss his quiet wisdom, great resolve – and the twinkle in his eye," said Dan Reicher, chairman of ACORE’s board and Executive Director of the Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy & Finance at Stanford University.
