Amy Halloran, Senior Manager for Renewable Energy Programs, Sandia National Laboratories
Sandia National Laboratories has the second largest portfolio of renewable energy R&D within the DOE National Laboratories. This system of labs executes federally funded R&D â€“ both basic research and early stage applied research â€“ that supports national renewable energy technology goals.
Steve Clemmer, Director of Energy Research & Analysis, Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS)
Steve Clemmer will discuss the impact of federal tax credits and state renewable electricity standards on wind and solar, energy sources that are creating new jobs across America and making renewable energy more affordable for consumers. He will also discuss how renewables are diversifying the U.S. electricity mix, making the grid more reliable and resilient.
Anne Kinsinger, Associate Director, Ecosystems, U.S. Geological Survey
Anne will speak about the role of the U.S. Geological Survey in providing authoritative scientific information, tools, and technologies to support renewable energy project development while minimizing impacts to fish and wildlife.
The EXPO brought together 40 businesses, trade associations, and government agencies to showcase renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. In every state across the country, these technologies are having a significant impact in business development and job creation in the manufacturing, transmission, power, transportation, and building sectors.
