Empower CEO Len Jornlin will also be a speaker at this year's event, participating as part of Panel 6, which will focus on what is happening behind the scenes in the areas of finance, the electric grid, and energy storage issues. This panel discussion will take place from 2:40 - 3:20pm in Cannon Caucus Room 334. The complete schedule includes seven panels and participants from over 25 departments, agencies, and organizations.

The 2014 Expo + Forum will bring together more than 40 businesses, sustainable energy industry trade associations, government agencies, and energy policy research organizations to showcase the status and near-term potential of the cross-section of renewable energy -- including solar, cogeneration, biofuels/biomass, geothermal, wind, water, and more -- as well as energy efficiency technologies.

Throughout the day industry experts, including Jornlin, will discuss -- in person and via live webcast -- the role sustainable energy solutions can play in meeting America's energy needs. Participants on the exposition floor will help address how renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies are currently providing effective solutions as Congress, the Administration, the business community, environmental advocates, and American voters search for options to address national security issues, higher energy costs, increased reliance on energy imports, and the environmental threats associated with energy consumption.

Beyond the technical aspects of renewable energy and energy-efficiency technologies, the exposition and forum will also cover related issues such as economics, job creation, environmental benefits, current and near-term market potential, model programs in the public and private sectors, as well as institutional, financial, and legal barriers.

The 17th Annual Congressional Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Expo + Forum is hosted by the Sustainable Energy Coalition and the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI). Moderators are Scott Sklar, President, The Stella Group, Ltd., and Carol Werner, Executive Director, Environmental & Energy Study Institute (EESI).
