A guest post by Scott Dawson, Environmental Director at ENGIE North America.
It is an exciting time to be in the clean energy industry—especially in the environmental field.
The passage of the Inflation Reduction Act has allowed a massive amount of investment in the clean energy space, resulting in the unprecedented growth of projects being developed, built, and operated. As development continues in existing geographies and expands into new areas, the extent of issues and potential stakeholder conflicts continues to grow and evolve.
The ACP Siting & Permitting Conference 2024 is the place to hear about the issues currently facing the industry and discover and discuss innovative solutions to address them.
I’m honored to co-chair the conference this year with Andrea Giampoli of Invenergy. Last year’s conference sold out and attendees had to be turned away! This year’s conference is already on track to blow away last year’s record attendance.
Our two-day program of simultaneous conference sessions will cover topics including:
- Policy & Regulatory Updates and Reforms
- Transmission Permitting
- Community Engagement and Local Affairs (including Tribal Engagement)
- Energy Storage Safety
- Eagle and Bat Regulations and Monitoring
- Smart Curtailment
- Alternative Siting (including Reclaimed Coal Mines and Brownfields)
- Stormwater, Erosion Control, and Vegetation Management
- Emerging Technologies
- And more!
There will also be networking sessions, exhibitor space, and poster sessions to allow attendees to meet one-on-one with speakers, colleagues, and other professionals.
Please join me, ACP, and hundreds of leading clean energy professionals at the Siting & Permitting Conference in Colorado Springs this March 11 – 13.
I will see you there!
