We'd like sessions to feature new data or ideas, consideration of important issues, and most importantly, fresh and informed thinking about where renewable energy markets are headed. We're looking for dynamic, engaging speakers with a compelling story to tell.

We're looking for abstracts in the following program areas, though feel free to submit new ideas you think would be relevant and compelling:
