The Renewable Energy Industries Association of New Mexico will host the first ever Business to Business Electrify New Mexico event on April 4th, 2024.

The U.S. and the world are transitioning to a clean energy economy, which means moving away from fossil fuels and toward a fully electrified future, powered by renewable energy sources. This event will discuss policies that will impact the transition including how the Inflation Reduction Act ($369 billion) as well as other federal and state funding can be used to expedite the transition.

This premier event will bring together thought leaders, policy makers, business executives and elected officials to discuss partnerships and collaborations to best unlock these resources. It will highlight how this transition can be accomplished through the adoption of newer technologies including building electrification, electric vehicles and distributed energy resources like solar and energy storage.
