SED’s Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum Goes Virtual
Smart Energy Decisions announces that the upcoming Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum, July 27-31, will be held online using a virtual event platform featuring the latest in communications and event management technology for facilitating virtual events including one-to-one meetings.
“Responding to the challenges associated with COVID 19 has illuminated the power of virtual meetings and the opportunity to leverage technology in a more effective way than previously possible,” said John Failla, Founder and Editorial Director of Smart Energy Decisions. “We’re confident our platform will be the next best thing to being face-to-face for learning, connecting, and doing business, while providing the personalized service our community has come to expect from SED events.”
The Virtual Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum is designed for energy and sustainability executives from large electric power users who have responsibility for energy procurement and management, facility management, and sustainability.
“SED Talks” keynote presentations will be given by James Goudreau, Head of Climate, Novartis Business Services; Cindy Quan, Global Chief of Staff and Head of ESG, Goldman, Sachs & Co.; Rob Threlkeld, Global Manager – Sustainable Energy, Supply & Reliability, GM; and Nick Brown, City Energy Manager, City of Phoenix.
Development of the event has been guided by the SED Virtual Platform Taskforce including representatives from Bristol Myers, Cargill, CSX, Goldman Sachs, IBM, ITW, Kingspan, Viacom CBS, MP2 Energy, 3Degrees, Constellation, Enel, Duke Energy Renewables/REC Solar, and Edison Energy. “Based on their input, our virtual event platform will provide the opportunity to experience SED’s trademark cutting edge content, connect with peers, attend targeted boardroom presentations, and conduct one-to-one strategic meetings with leading industry suppliers that can help you succeed,” said Failla.
Topics to be covered at the Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum include:
- Innovations in RE Sourcing
- Emerging Procurement Options
- Solar + Storage
- Aggregation Projects
- RE Procurement Trends and Strategies
- Electrification of Transportation
- How Does Hydrogen Fit In?
- Evolution of VPPAs – What’s Next?
In person or online, Failla noted, the mission of the Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum remains the same: to provide the information, inspiration, and contacts necessary to help large electric power users create and execute their renewable energy sourcing strategy.
