Execs from Starbucks, Intuit, and Kingspan to headline October RE Sourcing Forum
Smart Energy Decisions has announced that executives from Starbucks, Intuit, and Kingspan will be featured keynote speakers at the Fall edition of SED’s Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum on October 1-3, 2018 at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
These three featured keynote presentations will address some of the hottest topics in renewable energy sourcing: Patrick Leonard, manager, energy and resource management at Starbucks, will discuss "Starbuck’s portfolio approach to renewable energy sourcing;" Sean Kinghorn, global sustainability leader at Intuit, will present details on their groundbreaking "Intuit Purely Green" program, and Brent Trenga, building technology manager at Kingspan will provide insights on how they are "Driving renewable energy sourcing in the supply chain."
Building on the momentum and growing success of the two previous RE Sourcing Forum’s and developed with input from the Smart Energy Decisions’ Advisory Board, the theme of the event is creating and executing a renewable sourcing strategy. Topics covered on the conference program include RE product options; risk management, aggregation strategies; green tariff programs; driving renewables in the supply chain; securing internal support; pitfalls to avoid, and differences related to RE sourcing in regulated and deregulated markets.
"Collectively the Smart Energy Decisions community of large electric power users is driving substantial growth in the adoption of renewable energy,” said John Failla, founder and editorial director of Smart Energy Decisions. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to helping both experienced and new corporate buyers accomplish their goals while expanding the overall market for renewable energy."
In addition to keynote presentations and panel sessions, the RE Sourcing Forum will feature an engaging and informative mix of corporate buyer-only pre-conference workshops, private boardroom case study presentations, and one-on-one meetings with leading industry suppliers. In all, the RE Sourcing Forum has proven to be an intimate event experience unlike any other where corporate buyers and suppliers learn, network, and conduct business.
The RE Sourcing Forum is an invitation-only event open to qualified corporate buyers of renewable energy at large electric power users. In addition, a limited number of supplier sponsorships are available to suppliers and service providers with a proven track record.
