"You don't have to take a position on air quality or climate change or any of those controversial issues. You can just look at the practical question of how do you stay out of hot water. And that's with waterproof power." S. David Freeman
The Texas Renewables 2012 conference, coming December 10 – 13 at Lost Pines Resort, will be a unique experience delivering a view of an industry that is growing despite economic down turn, data support for the Texas legislative session and inspiration for the coming year.

Texas Renewable Energy Industries Association, TREIA is a non-profit trade organization founded in 1984 that had an early vision of the economic and environmental value of renewable energy. That vision comes into better focus with every passing year. Today renewable energy is a worldwide industry on a rapid growth path offering new job opportunities and building careers.
Peter Fox-Penner, Principal and Chairman, The Brattle Group will provide the opening keynote. As we approach the coming legislative session in Texas Fox-Penner’s insights will be helpful and provide necessary data to add strength and credibility to industry leaders who hope to influence policy.
Kate Galbraith, journalist at Texas Tribune, interviewed S. David Freeman, former General Manager at Lower Colorado River Authority, LCRA and Los Angeles Water & Power. Galbraith wrote about it in an article last December. In the interview Freeman said, “You don't have to take a position on air quality or climate change or any of those controversial issues. You can just look at the practical question of how do you stay out of hot water. And that's with waterproof power.” Both Freeman and Galbraith are speakers at Texas Renewables 2012.
