Each month, the Energy Exchange rounds up a list of top clean energy conferences around the country. Our list includes conferences at which experts from the EDF Clean Energy Program will be speaking, plus additional events that we think our readers may benefit from marking on their calendars.

Top clean energy conferences featuring EDF experts in July:

July 1: Alliance to Save Energy Congressional Briefing, Washington, DC
Speaker: Elgie Holstein, Senior Director for Strategic Planning

  • This summer the Alliance to Save Energy will be bringing Energy 2030 to Capitol Hill, hosting a series of congressional briefings focused on the three pillars of Energy 2030 – invest, modernize, and educate. The briefings will invite elected officials and their staff to speak with Alliance Associates and Energy 2030 supporters about innovative financing mechanisms (June), high-performance buildings (July) and benchmarking, rating & disclosure (August).

July 13-16: NARUC Summer Committee Meeting, Dallas, TX
Speaker: Diane Munns, Senior Director, Clean Energy Collaboration

  • At the NARUC Summer Committee Meetings, you will meet utility regulators from every State in the U.S., along with federal and international officials. This is the place for learning about the latest in regulatory trends and sharing best practices. NARUC meetings are essential to staying current and engaged in the most important utility sectors, including electricity, natural gas, telecommunications, and water. If you care about utility regulation, you do not want to miss this event.

July 24-25: Improving Power System Resilience in the 21st Century, Washington, DC
Speaker: Cheryl Roberto, Associate Vice President, Clean Energy

  • The Resilient America Roundtable and the Board on Energy and Environmental Systems, in collaboration with EPRI and NARUC, present this two-day event in support of the work of the National Research Council’s Resilient America Roundtable. Since electric power is critical to the provision of a wide range of social services and to disaster recovery, the objective is to identify strategies that could be used to improve the resilience and speed the restoration of transmission and distribution systems after disasters, as well as assure the continued provision of critical electricity-dependent social services during disasters.

Other top clean energy conferences across the U.S. in July:

July 6-10: SOLAR 2014: National Solar Conference, San Francisco, CA

  • The American Solar Energy Society (ASES) will hold its National Solar Conference (SOLAR 2014) in conjunction with the Intersolar North America exhibition and conference. With six decades of history in North American renewable energy laboratories and industries, ASES and its programs will bring new and engaging content to the Intersolar North America conference, including discussions in Resource Assessment and Integration, Passive Solar Building, Transportation and Biofuels, Concentrated Solar Power, Thermal Solar Power, Distributed Wind Power, and Young and Emerging Professionals in Solar. Through this partnership, ASES and Intersolar North America are able to reach an unprecedented range of attendees and cover the most relevant topics in the U.S. renewable energy industries.

July 14-15: 2014 Energy Information Administration Energy Conference, Washington, DC

  • The Energy Information Administration (EIA) Energy Conference has become a premier forum for addressing energy issues in the U.S. and worldwide. This event provides a unique opportunity to meet and network with fellow energy experts and decision makers. Last year the 2013 EIA Energy Conference attracted more than 900 U.S. and international attendees representing government, industry, not-for-profit groups, press, and academia, a record number in the conference’s five-year history. This year’s session topics include U.S. Crude Oil Exports, Emerging Trends in U.S. Vehicle Travel Demand, Renewable Energy: From Alternative to Conventional, Does Policy Still Matter?, and The Future of Biofuels.

July 16-17: Renewable Energy Development on Federal Lands 2014, Denver, CO

  • With America’s continued march towards energy independence, an ever-increasing percentage of that total is generated by renewable energy, and much of the current and future renewable energy is to be developed on federal land. This conference will provide both an overview of renewable energy development of federal land and detailed sessions on specific aspects of development by bringing together government officials, companies, consulting firms, and project managers who have successfully completed renewable projects, as well as NGOs and legislative representatives whose current and pending lawmaking will shape future projects. Attendees will gain detailed and specific knowledge in critical aspects of the government’s role in facilitating renewable energy development, case study discussion of completed and operating renewable energy on federal land, and proactive strategies for avoiding common obstacles.

July 27-31: 2014 IEEE Power & Energy Society General Meeting, Baltimore, MD

  • This premier power engineering conference will bring together practicing power engineers and academics from all over the world. The aim of the conference is to provide an international forum for experts to promote, share, and discuss various issues and developments in the field of electrical power engineering. The theme of the meeting is: Charting the Course to a New Energy Future.
