Join us for ACEEE’s second 2020 Rural Energy Conference, the premier conference on clean energy solutions for rural America. This dynamic one-day event will explore how clean energy, including energy efficiency, can spur economic growth and lower energy bills for rural residents. Our interactive sessions, plenary panels, and networking breaks will connect you with other leaders from utilities, government, industry, nonprofits, financial institutions, and academia.
You will learn about innovative utility programs, financing tools, and targeted opportunities for agriculture, manufactured housing, and public buildings. You will explore how clean energy is shaping local economies, bolstering community resilience, supporting disaster recovery, and increasing energy affordability.
Our opening plenary will look at electrification efforts across the United States. Representatives from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives, Efficiency Maine Trust, and Next Energy US will share strategies for electrifying rural communities.
At our afternoon plenary, experts from the Colorado Energy Office, University of New Mexico School of Law, University of Michigan, and Environmental and Energy Studies Institute will discuss how state policy can drive energy savings in rural communities. They will share policy opportunities such as statewide greenhouse gas reduction goals.
Don’t miss out on ACEEE’s second Rural Energy Conference, which precedes the Midwest Energy Solutions Conference. We offer special discounts if you attend both.
Accommodations are available at the Chicago Downtown Marriott Magnificent Mile at the rate of $169 per night through January 31, 2020. Make your reservations early to take advantage of the discounted prices and availability.
