Weekend event to demystify energy resource issues for non-experts

DALLAS, TX – The Dallas Sierra Club is pleased to announce the Earth, Wind & Fire Energy Summit to be held at the Addison Conference Center the weekend of October 4-5, 2014.

This affordable event is designed for non-experts and experts alike to learn and examine the benefits and risks of traditional and renewable energy resources, as well as emerging energy technologies. High-profile speakers will provide insight on a national and regional scale, as well as the environmental and human impacts of multiple sources of energy.

“This conference is the first event of its kind that the Sierra Club has held in Texas,” said Rita Beving, conservation co-chair of the Dallas Sierra Club. “It is unique in that it not only covers many traditional sources of energy including natural gas, coal, oil, and nuclear, but also discusses renewables and emerging forms of energy such as waste-to-energy generation.”

The conference will feature high-profile speakers from research universities, industry associations, institutions, and policymakers from Texas and around the country.

“We are particularly excited about our speakers who are coming in from across the country,” said host committee member John Lingenfelder. “It’s not often that local citizens, business owners and policymakers will have the opportunity to dive deep on such critical energy issues with such highly-credentialed speakers, such as the president of the third largest wind producer in the world and one of the most prominent researchers of the link between wastewater injection well and earthquakes.”

Registration for this event is only $55 through September 2 and $75 thereafter. The conference is open to the public as well as non-profit organizations, environmental professionals, small business owners, and students who want to:

  • Gain a global perspective of the dynamic and changing nature of energy in America
  • Explore how America’s demand for energy today translates into its production and expansion in the U.S. and Texas
  • Learn about the potential human and environmental impacts caused by energy production
  • Meet and network with an array of experts, respected organizations, and other individuals working on energy issues

Registration is now open for the Earth, Wind & Fire Energy Summit at Space is limited for this event.
