his Friday, July 20, 2012 is the final deadline for renewable energy and energy efficiency technology small businesses to apply to present at the Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL) Industry Growth Forum, which will be held October 23-24, 2012 in Denver, Colorado.

Every application received will be reviewed, scored, and given feedback by a selection committee of investors. Of these applications, 30 companies will be selected to present and compete for the Clean Energy Venture Award and commercialization services from NREL.
Even if a company is not selected to present, the application process includes:
- exposure to more than 120 North American investors
- valuable and direct feedback from investor reviewers
- reduced price registration to attend the Forum
- the opportunity to see and learn from the investment pitches of other clean energy companies
