NEW for 2014! We’re breaking out of the vertical energy mindset and dividing up the renewable energy marketplace by size, application and region. Our large-scale renewables track will cover baseload and multi-megawatt-scale renewable energy projects, policies and applications. Our distributed generation track will look at smaller commercial and behind-the-meter renewable energy applications, technologies and policies and our utility integration track will cover permitting and interconnection and other grid impacts of renewable energy. Our renewables and the global market track will examine how renewables are making an impact on emerging markets, for example how they are solving energy issues for the billions of people worldwide without access to power. Finally, our innovative energy partnerships will look at how renewable energy and other traditional fuels can work together such as pairing geothermal energy with oil and gas exploration; algae projects with power plants; pumped hydro or natural gas with wind farms and solar with coal plants.
The conference sessions are organized into multiple concurrent
session tracks and are tentatively titled:
Large Scale Renewables
Innovative Energy Partnerships
Renewables and Global Market
