The Global New Energy and Manufacturing Summit has been suspended for 2013.
Despite our success over the last four years -- even in a consistently weak economy -- concerns over the national debt, federal budget and the impact of sequestration have taken their toll on sponsorship commitments for 2013. As such, we are regrouping and looking ahead to 2014. There has already been feedback from a majority of the sponsors and speakers suggesting they would continue to support a 2014 Summit in a more stable economy.
The Summit has received consistent praise for its ability to bring together the highest level thought leaders across disciplines and industries to engage in conceptualizing practical solutions towards energy independence, balanced with environmental stewardship.
The Summit will continue to catalyze discussion and build community engagement through its unique custom collaborative platform -- the Global New Energy Network ( http://www.globalnewenergynetwork.org/ ). The Network has been redesigned and is ready to support and advance issues for engagement ahead of the 2014 Summit in a virtual environment. Please consider joining now and engage in the discussions already occurring – or start one.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and appreciate your support and interest in this year’s Summit.
New in 2013:
The Global New Energy Summit has added the word "Manufacturing" to its name this year to highlight an additional emphasis on job creation and the need to restore American competitiveness -- particularly related to manufacturing -- as the best path for long term sustainable job growth in the U.S.
Among this year's topics:
- Emerging innovation across the new energy spectrum — natural gas, oil and coal, nuclear, solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, transmission, storage, smart grid
- Establishing a long-term energy policy pathway
- Managing the role of water in natural gas production
- Updates on smart grid deployments and transmission policy
- Manufacturing jobs impacts and strategies
- Innovation and policy updates in transportation
- Entrepreneurship and commercialization
The Summit will be held once again in Colorado Springs. Around 500 of the most influential names in energy from across industry, finance, government and science are expected to participate, creating a highly interactive agenda.
