Taking a Fresh Look at Solar Energy
There have been a number of major developments in solar energy, including technology improvements, decreased costs and extended federal and state incentives. The new 10 MW plant in Chicago is the largest urban solar project in the country. Mr. Lopata and Mr. Learner will take a fresh look at how solar energy may be accelerating in the Midwest.
The Conference is June 8-10, 2010, and will be hosted at the world famous Missouri Botanical Garden and Union Station’s Marriott Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri. The event will bring in experts from across the region and country to discuss federal and state energy priorities, proposed legislative and regulatory actions, emerging national security issues, corporate response to carbon management, the future of coal, natural gas, and nuclear power, private sustainability initiatives, the prospect and analysis of new “green” projects and jobs, and the outlook for alternative energy research and initiatives. The event is cosponsored by the Missouri Botanical Garden and REGFORM.
