(Arlington, VA)–Martin Lowery, senior vice president for external affairs and member relations at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), will join cooperative representatives in Paris to discuss the cooperatives’ contribution to developing renewables and increasing energy efficiency.
Sponsored by the International Cooperative Alliance, the event takes place on December 3 at 2:00 p.m. at the UNESCO building (125 avenue de Suffren, 75007 Paris).
Lowery will participate on a panel entitled “Cooperation to Accelerate the Energy Transition” with cooperative organizations from Germany and France.
“America’s electric cooperatives lead the electric utility sector in the development of community solar and innovative residential demand response programs. I look forward to sharing our experience and perspective with the global community,” said Lowery.
