Fifth Third Bank added to RE Sourcing Forum Agenda
Smart Energy Decisions announced the addition of Fifth Third Bank to the agenda of the 2018 Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum to be held June 18-20 at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, San Diego, Calif. In a session titled "Fifth Third Bank’s bold entry into RE sourcing." Fifth Third Bank’s Scott Hassell, director of environmental sustainability, will be joined by Hans Royal of Schneider Electric to discuss how the company became the first Fortune 500 company and the first bank to contract for 100% RE, thanks to a PPA for a single solar project.
As previously announced, the Forum will feature keynote presentations from Brian Janous, general manager of energy strategy at Microsoft; Patrick Flynn, senior director of sustainability at Salesforce; Dr. Wolfgang Bauer, distinguished professor and senior consultant at Michigan State University; Matt Walz, CEO of REC Solar, a Duke Energy Renewables company, and a joint closing keynote including Rob Threlkeld, global manager of renewable energy at General Motors and Sam Castor, executive vice president of policy at Switch.
An industry-first panel discussion will feature executives from Puget Sound Energy, Consumers Energy and Westar who will discuss their efforts to develop "Innovations in utility green tariff programs."
In addition to keynotes and panel discussions, the Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum offers a unique and engaging mix of general sessions, private boardroom case study presentations, and one-on-one meetings with suppliers. Two preconference workshop sessions, exclusively for renewable energy buyers, will offer buyers with limited experience insights on "Getting started in renewable energy sourcing" while those further along the curve will participate in a "Policy and markets outlook" conversation led by Rob Threlkeld, featuring exclusive industry data presented by Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
