Please join us for a ninety minute executive roundtable discussion that will explore public policy measures for accelerating the adoption of LED lighting. This discussion will be moderated by Noah Horowitz, Principal Scientist of the National Resource Defense Council. Participants include executives from Industry, non-profits, government, and academia.
The discussion will review possibilities to fact-track widespread adoption of LED lighting, identify current policy inhibitors of adoption, and propose new solutions for accelerating adoption of this energy saving technology. Participants will be called upon to provide insight into these issues in a roundtable setting that promotes dialog between and among participants.
