2016 was a banner year for both wind and solar markets. Increasing performance and decreasing costs of renewable generators, coupled with low-cost natural gas are reshaping the way we generate our electricity and the way we operate our electricity system. The transformation that is underway has many implications for Colorado, including possibilities for economic opportunity.

Please join us as Dr. David Mooney, Director of the Strategic Energy Analysis Center at NREL reviews the latest in wind and solar technologies and markets along with current economic impacts of increased renewables deployments. There will also be a brief overview of NREL’s research into power grid operations under scenarios of high penetrations of wind and solar.

Prior to his current role, Dave was the Laboratory Program Manager for Solar Technologies, where he was responsible for managing and coordinating NREL’s $70M solar R&D portfolio. While at NREL, Dave also led efforts to identify and address technical issues associated with the large-scale deployment and integration of renewable and efficiency technologies into the existing energy infrastructure.
