The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE)’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has extended the application window for the 2013 Executive Energy Leadership Academy to March 20. “Energy Execs” is a leadership program focused on educating business, community, and government leaders about achieving clean energy solutions using energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. 

Energy Execs offers two learning opportunities: the Leadership Program and the Leadership Institute. Both programs are designed to provide executive decision-makers with information and tools to guide their organizations and communities in energy-related planning.

Participants have described Energy Execs as:

  • Very valuable to drive change in their own organization.
  • A fantastic combination of classroom time and details of how technologies work.
  • Opening the door for understanding the broader spectrum of renewables and various cutting-edge technologies.
  • And, a program with the vocabulary and contacts to advance partnerships with business, government, and community partners.

Representatives from 150 industry, government, and non-profit organizations have completed the program since 2007. Participants are selected from a national pool of candidates and all complete a final project with the goal to have a direct impact on their organization.

Applications for the 2013 Energy Execs program are accepted online. The application deadline is now March 20.

NREL is the U.S. Department of Energy's primary national laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development. NREL is operated for DOE by The Alliance for Sustainable Energy, LLC.
