Announcements are pending for additional speakers and attendees featuring commercial, industrial, and government organizations.
The 2021 Virtual Innovation Summit will be Smart Energy Decisions’ fourth virtual event. Its most recent event, the Virtual Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum (Winter Edition), was held last week, facilitating more than 350 one-to-one meetings between buyers and suppliers. Failla noted that “the interaction among all our attendees was strong and effective, including one-to-one meetings, our Peer-to-Peer Mastermind session, and live – and lively - Q&As after each general session. The willingness of these groups to share their successes and challenges is truly inspiring. We intend to bring this same spirit of collaboration to the 2020 Virtual Innovation Summit”
