SOLAR 20/20 is a global solar event at the right place and at the right time. The events of the moment -- international pronouncements by international bodies of scientists on climate change; amazing technology and market advances by innovators and financiers; and a push by everyone across the political spectrum for more control of our energy choices to reduce costs, increase reliability and resiliency, reduce polluting emissions, and reinvigorate local economies with jobs and employment opportunities -- all converge at this pivotal time and place to spark the next wave of ingenuity, partnership and action. Washington, D.C. is the seat of our national government; the center of national media; and home of influential international institutions and non-profits that impact policy in global security, energy, environment, housing, and financing.
The George Washington University, five blocks from The White House at the epicenter of these activities, facilitates bringing together activists, educators, businesses, and experts in grassroots activities, policy making, finances, and technologies. SOLAR 20/20 will be full of dynamic dialogues among these diverse groups on immediate next steps in the renewable energy revolution. The conference promises to particularly engage students and young professionals with the goal of ensuring a strong workforce and base of solar citizens moving forward.
