Join world leaders at AREDAY2020

AREDAY2020 to be held Virtually
The AREDAY Summit will be held virtually in the Fall 2020. In light of rapidly developing news of COVID-19 guidelines, CDC guidelines, and Pitkin County requirements, AREI will host the AREDAY Summit and IMPACTFILM virtually.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given both people and planet a break to pause and breathe. It has shown how interconnected we are and how generous the human spirit can be. This opportunity has given us a new course to take to shrink our carbon footprint and still share knowledge and foster collaborations that will usher in a rapid transition to a new, clean energy economy.

COVID-19 Response
AREI cares deeply about the health and well-being of our community. We have great sympathy for those directly touched by the impact of COVID-19.

We continue to closely follow all guidance from global, federal and local health authorities.
