The PennFuture 2012 Clean Energy Conference, slated for September 13-14 in Philadelphia, will focus on making the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions America's Clean Energy Hub. But what exactly does that mean?
Well, we aren't talking about developing a DOE Energy Innovation Hub that helps to commercialize emerging clean energy technologies — we'll leave that to the DOE.
We are talking about leveraging the significant market opportunities on the horizon for renewables and efficiency in the region. These opportunities will be driven in part by existing state laws including portfolio standards and efficiency requirements that will be ramping up in the near future. These expanding markets will make the region, you guessed it, a hub of activity for project and business development, positioning us as a national leader in clean energy growth.
Conference sessions will discuss strategies to help sustain and prepare clean energy businesses for upcoming opportunities while exploring policies that will maintain healthy clean energy markets. There will also be ample time for one-on-one conversations with those who can help your business most.
We hope to see you in September in Philadelphia. Check out the updated conference agenda with some heavyweight speakers just added and register today at www.pennfuture.org/CleanEnergyHub.
