Environmental and Natural Resources Law Program at Denver Law to Convene Major Renewable Energy "Summit" on November 7 in Denver

The Environmental and Natural Resources Law Program at Denver Law will convene a major conference, the Renewable Energy Law & Policy Summit, on November 7 at the Ricketson Law Building on the DU campus.

Holland & Hart, one of the country's leading renewable energy development law firms, is the presenting sponsor. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the only federal laboratory dedicated to the research, development, commercialization and deployment of renewable energy is a supporting sponsor.

The one-day conference, which is being held in conjunction with NREL's 24th Industry Growth Forum, will consider the current and emerging legal, policy, and regulatory issues in relation to renewable energy.

Don Smith, Director of the Environmental and Natural Resources Program at DU, said, "Renewable energy is becoming an ever more important subject in the context of U.S. energy security as well as reducing the environmental impact of energy generation. Denver Law is committed to being the nation's leading law school when it comes to studying about renewables. We think this conference, in which we will bring together key industry representatives, legal practitioners, academics, and others is another step in delivering on that commitment."

The conference will include three keynote speakers. In the morning, David Eves, President and CEO of Public Service Company of Colorado, and Susan Reilly, President and CEO of RES Americas, will speak. The lunchtime speech will be delivered by Dan Arvizu, Director and Chief Executive of NREL. After more than three decades of professional engagement in the clean energy field, Dr. Arvizu is widely recognize as one of the world's leading experts on renewable energy and sustainable energy.

The event is open to anyone interested in issues related to renewable energy. Following the program, there will be a networking event where attendees can meet the speakers.
