Maharishi University of Management alumni Amy and Troy Van Beek visited the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to theĀ United Nations Framework Convention on Climate ChangeĀ in Paris last December, representing Ideal Energy. Amy and Troy were invited by the National Resource Defense Council (NRDC) as part of the Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2) delegation of fifteen business owners.

Amy and Troy founded Ideal Energy in 2009 with the mission to drive the change towards sustainable energy and help businesses and individuals invest in clean energy and save money by installing solar arrays. Ideal Energy has become one of the largest solar companies in Iowa.

Their mission at the Paris summit was to show the world that businesses and investors support action on climate change because it is good for the economy and the environment.

Troy, who served in the U.S. Navy for nine years, feels fortunate to be involved with national security through renewable energy and resource security.

The Van Beeks are proud that MUM alumni comprise 50 percent of their workforce. 'Most of the MUM student body are very conscious individuals and they believe that there is a different and more conscious way to live in this world,' said Amy.
