Consumer Energy Alliance Set to Host First Annual Energy Day Festival

New CEA Video Highlights Event

HOUSTON, TX – Consumer Energy Alliance unveiled an exciting new video today to showcase the upcoming first annual Energy Day Festival. 

“In just about 90 days Downtown Houston will be buzzing with people participating in the first annual Energy Day Festival hosted by Consumer Energy Alliance,” said David Holt, CEA’s President.  “The official City of Houston event will take place in Downtown Houston, Texas on October 15, 2011 in front of City Hall.  We are so excited to announce that with more than 80 exhibitors already confirmed, the Festival is assured to be a unique, interactive and exciting educational experience for children of all ages.”

Energy Day is a way for the city of Houston and our partners such as Shell, Caterpillar, ConocoPhillips, Statoil, TransCanada, Ignite Solar, El Paso, Reliant, Greater Houston Partnership, Houston Renewable Energy Group, Anadarko, and many, many more, to further embrace its legacy and leadership in the energy sector (a current list is on the accompanying page).  Energy Day will truly showcase Houston’s role as “The Energy Capital” and its leadership in all aspects of energy – from oil and natural gas to algae to solar to energy efficiency. Exhibitors will display exciting, interactive demonstrations showcasing energy and what it means to us in our daily lives – with fun games and prizes for kids of all ages.

CEA has partnered with other Houston-area educational institutions to help encourage broad participation in ongoing science & energy academic competitions.  In early 2011, HISD, CSTEM, Houston Museum of Natural Science, SEFH, Northwest Houston Chamber of Commerce—Energize! Houston, CASE, The University of Houston, HCDE, KIPP, YES Prep Public Schools and Lone Star College partnered to form the Energy Capital Academic Program (ECAP) that encourages students to participate in multiple academic challenges and compete for valuable cash prizes throughout the year.  CEA will present to all ECAP award recipients during Energy Day.

“We really want to showcase how important energy is to every aspect of our lives and educate students about all the exciting ways energy can enhance their future,” added Holt.  “Energy has a vast reach and offers all of us exciting futures.  Energy Day will showcase all this wonderful technology and innovation occurring all over the city of Houston and the entire state and nation.”
