    We've all heard that Charlotte is transitioning from a bank town, but where are we headed?  This panel will evaluate how renewable energy will be a part of the future of Charlotte.  Our panelists represent distinctly different areas of development, and each will offer their insight on how renewable energy technology is reshaping our city. 

    Our panel will be moderated by Scott Mickle from LandDesign.  The panelists will include: 

    • Keith Pehl from Optima Engineering
    • Tom Kepper from Greenfield Power
    • A Member of the North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association

    Our luncheon will be held at the Charlotte City Club from 11:30 to 1:30.  Please allow yourself plenty of time to get from the parking deck to the 31st floor of the building.  Lunch will be a buffet and will begin promptly at 12:00 PM.  Parking and venue information is listed below.
