Renewable energy policy will be in the spotlight next week at the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) forum being held December 8-9 in Washington, D.C.
According to ACORE, the Phase II Renewable Energy in America National Policy Forum will feature bi-partisan discussion of key energy issues. Each panel will begin with a topical presentation, followed by a conservative point of view and a liberal point of view, followed by a moderated give-and-take discussion to identify points of agreement and disagreement. An ACORE conference co-chair will moderate the panel, and a second co-chair will serve to summarize.
Keynote speakers for the event include Congressman Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke, NREL Director Dan Arvizu, FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff and former Senator John Warner. A panel on “The State of Renewable Energy in America” will include ethanol company executive Jeff Broin, CEO of POET.
