In advance of the Renewable Energy Policy Forum, ACORE hosts the American Renewable Energy Gala, an annual networking dinner and award ceremony. The gala convenes hundreds of attendees to honor select organizations and individuals for their leadership and contributions to innovation and growth in the renewable energy industry. In 2018, GE and BlackRock accepted our Renewable Energy Leadership Award, and Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Ed Markey (D-MA) received the Renewable Energy Champion Award. Past awardees include Amazon, Google and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
The 2018 American Renewable Energy Gala was held on the evening of Tuesday, March 13 in the Atrium of the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.
