U.S. Solar Power Leaders to Discuss Need to Extend Renewable Energy Program

The Newsmaker forum will take place in the club’s Murrow Room at 10 a.m. Dec. 14 in the National Press Building, 529 14th St. NW, Washington, D.C.

GTM Research will also unveil results from the quarterly "U.S. Solar Market Insight" report, which provides detailed analysis of the U.S. solar market’s historic growth. The third quarter was the best quarter ever for the U.S. solar industry, which is doing well despite the Solyndra bankruptcy and subsequent speculation about the health of the sector.

The panel will include Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industry Association; Tony Clifford, chief executive officer of Standard Solar; and Shayle Kann of GTM Research. Bracewell Giuliani energy expert Frank Maisano, a member of the club’s Newsmakers Committee, will host and moderate the event.
