How do current legislation and regulations define the opportunity and the path forward for renewables in Virginia? How do these establish the parameters of business opportunities for renewables? What points of demand are created, stimulated, or suppressed?
On April 26th, VA-REA will host its first Leadership in Energy Advancement and Development (LEAD) series forum of 2018 at McGuireWoods Consulting in Richmond, Virginia.

Expert speakers will include Virginia business and government leaders discussing how these issues define the opportunity and the path forward for renewables in Virginia.
