This is a reprise of our 2011 event.  A lot of water has gone under the bridge for renewable energy in four years.  By now, we expected renewable energy and energy efficiency to have taken off and be leading us into a new energy future. How are we really doing? Are we on track for a new energy future. Where is the resistance coming from? What should we expect for the future of renewable energy?

Event Description - Five panelists will cover the state of:

  • Solar Photovoltaics - Bob Solger, Solar Design Studio
  • Wind Energy and Fracking - Joe Spease, WindSoHy
  • Legislation Impacting Renewable Energy - Zack Pistora, Legislative Director for Sierra Club
  • Utilities in the Renewable Energy Age - Bill Griffith, Sierra Club Energy Chair
  • Energy Efficiency Retrofits - Ken Riead, Hathmore Technologies

Each presenter will summarize where we stand today, where we have dropped the ball, and what are the opportunities and imperatives for the future. An open discussion between the panel and the audience will continue as time allows.

Who Should Attend?
Professionals in renewable energy and energy retrofit services, as well as government officials and the public interested in this vital topic.

Cost: Attendance is FREE for HRES members and non-members!!  Open to the public.

Please RSVP to info@HeartlandRenewable.org
