On Thursday, May 15, Ecotech Institute is hosting a one-day "Renewable Energy and Sustainability Forum" from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Ecotech Institute's campus in Aurora.

Key speakers for this event will include members from Ecotech Institute's Board of Directors and the CEO of RES Americas, Ms. Susan Reilly.

"It's an honor to have Ms. Reilly for this event. She's a very influential leader in the renewable energy sphere and we're excited to hear what she has to say about energy efficiency and sustainability," said Chris Gorrie, academic dean at Ecotech Institute. "RES (Renewal Energy Systems) holds a reputation as a leading independent renewable energy project developer, and there is so much our students and guests can learn from her."

In Reilly's current role at RES, one of the fastest growing renewable energy companies in the world and a leading resource for renewable energy jobs, she leads the continued growth and development of the company's highly successful regional business and contributes to the strategic management of the RES group. During this event she will share her insights and knowledge, gained from over a decade of experience in the industry.

In addition to Reilly's comments, the event will include a panel discussion from Ecotech Institute's National Board of Directors. The discussion will be followed by a question and answer session with the Board that will be focused on sustainability, energy efficiency and renewable energy.
