NEEDHAM, Mass. - The Virtual Energy Forum, an online conference focusing on renewable energy and energy-efficient practices in business, will be held for free on June 24 and 25 and will feature such speakers as Amory Lovins of the Rocky Mountain Institute, Richard H. Jones of the International Energy Agency, and Mark Ginsberg of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

The forum replicates a typical conference experience online, including keynote speeches, industry-specific presentations in five parallel tracks, “Meet the Expert” live video chats, and an emerging technology showcase. Tracks include Global Green Cities, Smart Building, Energy Management, Renewables, and Utility Profile. The virtual exhibit floor allows you to chat with the exhibitors, exchange contact information, and collect materials in a virtual briefcase. All the presentations will also be available on demand after the conference.
