  • Bob Valair

    If you are not attending this conference, you are missing an opportunity to help yourself and your organization about laying out a great renewable energy strategy.

  • Amy Bond

    SED was the starting gun for Sprint. I attended a SED event and those educational opportunities and relationships that were initiated are really what launched Sprint on our successful execution of our first VPPA. I have a lot to thank for SED.

  • Wolfgang Bauer

    What makes SED events unique is the way that I can get the word out about my particular needs on renewable energy procurement to the widest possible audience.

  • Chris Cantone

    The one-on-one personal meetings is where the true value is.

  • Rob Federighi

    There is a high quality of customer executives that are at SED events. These are people that are working within the c-suites of their own organization. You get the opportunity to meet these people at SED.

  • Shay Ohrel

    The format of SED events is really successful. Attendees have the ability to have one-to-one meetings where they are not chasing name tags the whole time and trying to run people down. It takes a lot of pressure off both buyers and sellers.
