Thirteen local community leaders were chosen to join the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL) Executive Energy Leadership program.
Energy Execs will participate in monthly educational sessions covering topics such as solar technology, wind energy and transportation of the future. Sessions will include an in depth look at future markets and analysis tools for renewable energy and energy efficiency applications. Participants will receive renewable energy and energy efficiency briefings by technology experts, research laboratory tours and visits to field applications.
“We applaud these community leaders for the important role they play in helping with the successful immersion of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies in the marketplace,” said Director Dan Arvizu.
At the conclusion of the six-month program, participants will be equipped to prepare a case study for renewable energy and energy efficiency applications appropriate for their organizations.
The Energy Execs first meeting is May 18 at NREL’s Visitors Center in Golden, Colo.
