Leaders Needed for National Executive Energy Academy

The NREL is currently accepting applications for the 2013 Executive Energy Leadership Academy (Energy Execs), which is a leadership program for non-technical decision-makers in the U.S. to learn about energy efficiency and renewable energy technology. Application deadline is Mar. 8, 2013.

The Energy Execs have two open learning opportunities, the Leadership Program and the Leadership Institute, both of which are designed to provide decision-makers with the right tools and information to guide their communities and organizations in energy-related planning. Candidates can apply for one or both of the programs.

“Private industry, higher education, and government rely on leaders with vision and drive to make the transition to sustainable, secure, clean electricity and fuel,” NREL Director Dan Arvizu said. “NREL’s Energy Execs programs play an important role in bringing those leaders together to learn about what is possible and to strategize about market-viable solutions.”

NREL’s Leadership Program is for executives with an interest in the exploration of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies, applications, and issues. It requires travel to Golden, Colo., and attendance once a month for five months. It includes five three-day sessions completed May through September.
