GridNEXT 2017 Conference Highlights
For over 35 years, TREIA has been a leader in promoting renewable energy in Texas. Based on our successes, 2015 saw the development of wind and solar technologies that reached a tipping point that ignited the deployment of exciting new technologies in the power grid. This marked the start of the biggest transformation in the history of the electric industry. As a result, TREIA founded our first annual GridNEXT Conference to focus specifically on ways new technologies are transforming the energy landscape and help create the Grid of the Future.
How exciting it was at this year’s GridNEXT 2017 Conference where industry leaders from across the country and the world came together in the 100% renewable-energy powered city of Georgetown, Texas. We were thrilled to welcome Former Vice President Al Gore as our opening keynote, who praised Texas for being first in the nation (and 6th in the world) in renewable energy production.
“Clean, renewable energy should not be a partisan issue,” said Georgetown’s Mayor and renowned renewable-energy-advocate, Dale Ross, in his welcoming remarks. “It’s just good business and has been very good for us in terms of having some of the lowest utility rates in Central Texas. And besides, isn’t it our responsibility to leave the planet just a little bit better than we found it?”
Vice President Gore was followed by a host of distinguished headliners such as Peter Kelly Detweiller of Forbes, Jan Vrins of Navigant, Gavin Bade of Utility Dive, EarthX Founder, Trammell S. Crow, and Juan Torres of NREL – all who shared their immense knowledge of renewable energy trends and successes. Pre-conference workshops on grid resilience, cyber-security, electric vehicles, and energy markets were standing-room-only as attendees gathered to form new industry connections and learn how renewables are changing the paradigm for energy and creating a cleaner grid for Texas and the nation.
Mark your calendars now and plan to join us and attend GridNEXT 2018 from October 21-23, 2018 – once again at the beautiful and renowned Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center in Georgetown, Texas.
