Renewable Energy Workshop — April 2007
AHC Group 2nd Annual Renewable Energy
and Climate Solutions Workshop
"The Rising Role of Renewables in Corporate Strategy"
April 25-27, 2007
San Francisco, CA
All over America, corporations are confronting an unrelenting array of issues centered on the management of their energy and environmental footprint. As energy independence becomes a national imperative and renewable energy attracts an unprecedented array of interests from every sector, corporations are being challenged to play a significant role in developing markets for renewable energy through their own internal strategies and actions.
We invite you to join leaders from BP, the United States Air Force, The Energy Foundation, Austin Energy, Johnson Controls, Pacific Gas & Electric, CH2M Hill, The Crotty Group, and others at a two-day workshop in San Francisco, April 25-27, 2007.
This workshop provides participants with competitive insight into today's energy market through access to leading executives and policymakers. Participation is limited to no more than 50 companies, with sessions structured to facilitate open dialogue among attendees.
As a participant, you will gain a basic understanding of the regulatory and market environments, learn about your energy efficiency options, and hear how green power can provide any number of ancillary benefits, including strengthened relationships with customers, shareholders, and employees; product and brand differentiation; and a hedge against fluctuating fossil fuel prices.
The basis of this workshop is a highly productive meeting held in Houston in November 2006. The Houston event convened more than 30 select companies, including Pfizer, Dell, Google, Wal-Mart, DTE Energy, SC Johnson, BP, Dayton Power and Light, FirstEnergy, Nike, Lockheed Martin, Best Buy, Austin Energy, and LP. All groups shared their experiences with renewable energy purchases, including who is in charge of this task, what stretch goals or programs are planned, what the motivating/driving factors are behind purchasing or not, how renewables fit into a well-balanced energy portfolio, and how they relate to a corporate climate change strategy.
Dr. Bruce Piasecki of the AHC Group will serve as workshop facilitator, leading a spirited and stimulating discussion of the issues.Through his company's Corporate Affiliates program, Bruce has provided a fresh and unique atmosphere for transformational learning, uniting over 38 multinational firms and 192 global leaders twice annually for the past 17 years.
