The US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has selected 21 leaders to participate in its 2019 Executive Energy Leadership program (Energy Execs).

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

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

At the conclusion of the program, participants will demonstrate what they’ve learned by presenting a feasible innovative energy project that is relevant to their organization or community. Since its inception in 2007, more than 300 representatives of industry, government and non-profit organizations have completed the Energy Execs program, delivered through the Executive Energy Leadership Academy.

NREL is the US Department of Energy’s primary national laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development. NREL is operated for DOE by The Alliance for Sustainable Energy.
