NREL Announces Participants for 2017 Executive Energy Leadership Program

The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has selected 22 leaders to participate in its 2017 Executive Energy Leadership program (Energy Execs).

Energy Execs provides non-technical business, governmental, and community leaders throughout the country an opportunity to learn about renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies, analytical tools, and financing to guide their organizations and communities in energy-related decisions and planning.

The four-month program, which begins next week, offers executive decision-makers an in-depth opportunity to learn from some of our laboratory’s most prominent scientists, engineers and professionals, tour our research facilities, and visit local renewable energy installations.

At the conclusion of the program, participants will demonstrate what they have learned in the program by presenting a feasible clean energy project that is relevant to their organization or community. Since the inception of Energy Execs in 2007, more than 250 representatives of industry, government and non-profit organizations have completed the program, which is delivered through the Executive Energy Leadership Academy.
