The renewable energy industry in Texas is ready. Interest in Texas Renewables 2010 conference is high. "Everyone is definitely feeling bullish about this year and the next few years." Tom Pash, president and CEO, ONtility
Electric Power Engineers of Austin is among more than 50 Texas business and government leaders speaking at Texas Renewables 2010 (www.texasrenewables.org), Texas' premier business-to-business meeting for anyone in or wanting to be in the Texas renewable energy industry. The conference takes place November 7-10 in San Antonio and is hosted by CPS Energy.
After returning from Solar Power International (SPI), the largest solar power event in North America, Electric Power Engineers Inc. recognized with renewed conviction the opportunities in Texas. Hala N. Ballouz, president and CEO, Electric Power Engineers Inc. cited the exponential growth in solar project activity among renewable generation developers in the last few months. “Our business is doing nearly as many studies and designs for solar power as for wind projects. Participating in the SPI conference in LA this week certainly emphasized how this industry has exploded. The solar power industry in Texas is ready, the developers are at work and the electric grid is looking to embrace it. To capture this wave and release its energy, we should work together to ensure our legislature passes standards and incentives that are specific to solar generation.”
Texas Renewables 2010 provides the venue for forming valuable B2B alliances and keeping industry sectors informed on the latest business developments, regulations, federal and state grants and other renewable energy business opportunities. The conference starts Nov. 7th with the Texas International Business Connections Forum and continues with over 50 speakers, including dozens of industry leaders and these key government officials:
While at SPI Russel Smith, executive director, TREIA and co-organizer of Texas Renewables 2010 noted, “Since the last legislative session, Texas has moved from a tiny blip on the worldwide solar industry’s radar screen of business development potential to a flashing signal that can’t be ignored. The buzz in the exhibit hall at SPI was that if the Texas Legislature passes a solar incentive program, a significant non-wind portfolio standard, or both, we will see Texas move quickly into the top tier of states for solar development. Interest in Texas Renewables 2010 was high.”
Texas Renewable Energy Industries Association (TREIA) www.treia.org, is the oldest renewable energy non-profit trade organization in Texas whose work promoting development of renewable resources and their wise use has spanned a quarter of a century.
