The REM™ 2020 Call for Abstracts has been extended two weeks—don't miss this unique opportunity to present at the most important event of the year for leaders in clean energy markets. We're seeking abstracts for presentations, panels, and table topics that are timely, engaging, and informative. Presentations and session proposals should focus on being as discussion-oriented as possible. We'd like sessions to feature new data or ideas, consideration of important issues, and most importantly, fresh and informed thinking about where renewable energy markets are headed. We're looking for dynamic, engaging speakers with a compelling story to tell.

This year we're also looking for Table Topics—brief, informal conversations with a single moderator per topic per table. Table Topics are a great way to share your experience and expertise with other attendees.

Application period open through Wednesday, April 15th, 2020 at 5PM PT. Learn more at
