Upcoming Summit Focuses on Current Innovation

What’s new in the electric industry as it moves to a cleaner, sustainable energy future is on the agenda for the Colorado Rural Electric Association’s annual Energy Innovations Summit October 28. Held at the Grand Hyatt Denver Hotel at 1750 Welton St., the day-long conference will include well-known speakers and panels of industry leaders all talking about energy.

Among those speakers is Michael Shellenberger, founder and president of Environmental Progress, who is known as a “climate guru” and was named TIME magazine’s “Hero of the Environment.” An environmental and social justice advocate for over 25 years, he regularly contributes to Forbes, The New York Times and The Washington Post, as well as giving TED talks. CREA’s Summit is an opportunity for Coloradans to hear him.

Other topics planned for the day include panels on net zero carbon emissions, micro grids, energy storage such as batteries and carbon capture and storage. There will also be a vendor fair introducing attendees to innovative equipment and software. Registration is open to everyone interested in these topics.
