Special Dialogue Events*

Women in Solar Energy  – The purpose of the WISE forum is to inspire women to become more technically involved in solar, not just peripheral to it. It’s easy for us to talk about what we do, but this isn’t a forum to just talk about our jobs, but about how we got where we are and the obstacles and barriers that we’ve come up against and broke through or just moved out of the way to continue on our path. this is a forum for accomplished women to share lessons learned and heartfelt stories about their lives. It is the story about the journey. The forum will be followed by a lunch and networking event.

Community Solar Forum – Join us for a session highlighting all of the actions people and organizations are taking around the topic of community solar.

Ensuring a Just & Equitable Transformation Keynote – Building on the conference theme of “Energy Transformation with Economic Justice,” this keynote will focus on the topics of energy justice. This discussion will focus on a vision of paths forward, how we can work together to ensure that all communities benefit from the clean energy transformation, and how empowering a sustainable future can benefit everyone.

Young Professional Engagement – The Young Professionals Forum will feature emerging professionals and their stories of success followed by a lunch and networking event.
