I want to alert you to a unique opportunity this December. It’s a special conference and video-taping called Renewable Energy and The Unified Energy System. And it’s going to be at the Lost Pines Resort just outside of Austin on the way to Bastrop.
Renewable Energy has truly come of age.
Solar modules are below a dollar/watt and distributed solar is about to blast through the proverbial roof. Texas Coastal wind now competes with base load fossil plants in price, yet performs like a more expensive gas peaking plant. Just as important, large scale solar plants can now compete with natural gas peaking units in price. Plug-ins and all-electric cars are becoming commonplace on our streets. Rules for storage facilities are finally written. Advanced thermostats and controls and other smart grid developments are providing new avenues in demand side energy management for both homeowners and utilities.
Our cars, buildings and the electric grid are becoming unified and Renewable Energy will be the big winner in an energy horizon where energy sellers become buyers, buyers become sellers, and renewable energy competes with oil in the transportation sector.
Texas Renewables 2012 is designed to address this transition and highlight the accomplishments of the Pecan Street Project where 200 of the 600 energy efficient smart homes are fitted with solar PV and 100 of the homes will support a plug in vehicle. The conference will provide a solid understanding of the forces at play to further the vision of a “Unified Energy System” and discuss strategies to sustain continued growth for the renewable energy sector.
You may even want your company or agency to be an exhibitor.
