When you listen to a keynote speaker or watch a panel at the National Clean Energy Summit, you know you're getting a preview of the clean energy issues that will be playing out across the country over the coming years.
We recently asked former CEP executive director Lydia Ball to pick out a few of her favorite quotes from previous Summits. Ball, who is currently a fellow of the Truman National Security Project, highlighted three NCES speakers whose remarks on national security still resonate with her today.
We caught up with Bruce Spotleson at last year's National Clean Energy Summit and asked him why he supports clean energy in Nevada. Spottleson, then Chairman of the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce board of directors, talks about why being a young state gives Nevada an advantage in designing its clean energy future.

A team of students and faculty from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas just won a Design Excellence Award for the Desert Sunrise Home, their entry in this year’s Race To Zero Competition.
The Department of Energy’s annual Race to Zero Student Design Competition invites students and faculty to develop cost-effective zero energy homes for mainstream builders and real-world scenarios.
For their entry, the Desert Sunrise team took a unique approach, designing a house that would address the housing challenges of the Moapa Band of Southern Paiute Indians.
