Now BL is proud to present this summer's premier solar energy development event organized by the New Jersey Innovation Institute taking place on the campus of the New Jersey Institute of Technology in downtown Newark, New Jersey on June 19, 2018: BRIGHTFIELDS 2018 - NEWARK - POWERING UP LANDFILLS, GREYFIELDS AND BROWNFIELDS WITH SOLAR ENERGY. This power-packed one day informational and interactive event will bring together SOLAR DEVELOPERS, PROPERTY OWNERS, COMMUNITIES and other SOLAR PROFESSIONALS to hear fresh industry insights from public and private sector experts, to pose technical questions to trained brownfield/land use professionals on site and to make direct connections via an opt-in SOLAR MARKET MIXER.
This is a must-attend event for (1) landowners, property managers and anyone seriously interested in the development of solar energy on marginal land in rural or urban areas, (2) solar developers seeking land for purchase or lease, (3) public and private sector professionals working in the solar space, (4) anyone motivated towards utilizing greyfields, brownfields, landfills, Superfund sites and any other unproductive parcel potentially useful in generating solar power (even greenfields), or (5) anyone wanting to learn more about the application of solar energy on the land.
Attendees to this limited-seat solar development event at NJIT on June 19 can connect to property owners/managers, professionals, public officials, solar developers and deal-makers and sit in high caliber educational sessions scheduled along two separate tracks. The landowners track will focus on how to convert contaminated, blighted and marginal real estate into solar energy assets, while the solar developers track will focus on navigating the developmental and transactional ins & outs of the brownfield, landfill and Superfund landscape.
