Renewable Energy in New England

Date: 9/8/2008 to 9/9/2008

Location: Boston, MA

Hilton Boston Back Bay Hotel.

This information was last updated on June 24, 2008

This conference brings together federal and state policy makers, developers, transmission companies and financial players to discuss opportunities and challenges for renewable energy and efficiency programs in the Northeast. These high level speakers will address the current status and likely impacts of federal and state initiatives, the next wave of renewable technologies to be deployed in the region and opportunities for increased investment in the sector.

While the conference will provide an excellent overview of the pertinent law, policy and economics, the goal is to create an opportunity for a focused faculty and audience to develop new insights and relationships that will increase opportunities for continued success in the renewable sector.
