Clark's article this month in ERJ concerns the technologies and systems for on-site power and "green development" of energy technologies that are good for the environment, reduce climate change, and meet or exceed the results of the UN G20 Summit held in Hangzhou, China (September 2016) that called for "green development" around the world; and the need for "action and not more talk".

As Clark puts it, "PRHL is an example, and now increasingly in China, of a company that embraces and furthers 'green development' which is a key outcome of the G20". Further information on the B20 meeting and outcome from it meeting in September 2016 can be found at:

The strategies and technologies he introduced to us four years ago are now coming to fruition and thanks to him, PRHL is poised to do many wonderful things here in the US, China and internationally. We are grateful for Woody's contribution to PRHL's future success."
