April 29, 2015
The Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has selected 21 leaders to participate in its 2015 Executive Energy Leadership program (Energy Execs), which empowers executives to integrate clean energy solutions in their communities.
The five-month program offers executive decision-makers from throughout the U.S. an in-depth look at renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. As part of the experience, participants are briefed by NREL technology experts, tour research laboratories and visit renewable energy installations.
"The continued transformation of our energy systems toward a more sustainable future requires informed decision-makers who are leading the way," NREL Director Dan Arvizu said. "NREL is pleased to welcome these business, community and government leaders so they can better understand the implications of their energy decisions and demonstrate leadership for the long-term clean energy economy".
At the conclusion of the program, participants will present a viable clean energy project. Since its inception, more than 200 representatives of industry, government and non-profit organizations have completed the Energy Execs program, delivered through the Executive Energy Leadership Academy.
