Denis Hayes: How NREL Won The Long Game for Clean Power

Hear from remarkable scientists and engineers on what motivated their research in solar power and other fossil fuel alternatives when oil was king and how they weathered hostility from earlier governments. Our headline speaker is Denis Hayes, who was SERI’s second director and famously co-founded Earth Days. This event marks the 40th Anniversary of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and its predecessor, the Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI).


Stay for a networking reception with food and drinks after the presentation. 

Co-sponsored by the Colorado Renewable Energy Society, the JUC Green Task Force and New Energy Colorado/Golden Earth Days.
