BOISE, Idaho, March 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:AEHI) () announced today that AEHI CEO Don Gillispie will be a featured panelist at the Global New Energy Summit, which is scheduled for April 17-19, 2011 at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Some of the key speakers at the Summit include Ken Salazar, U.S. Secretary of the Interior and former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, who was named the "Greenest Governor in America".

Gillispie will join a panel of energy experts to discuss the integration of renewable energy sources. The other two panelists include Sunil Cherian, CEO Spirae, Inc. and Bryan J. Hannegan, VP of Environment and Renewables at the Electric Power Research Institute.

"This is a great honor for me to speak on this subject. In my career I have been involved with power sources ranging from nuclear to wind and solar, so it is a subject I know very well. It is also an issue I deal with at AEHI. We promote nuclear power as a clean base load power source and as a method of desalinating water, but we also work with renewables in building homes, so integration is a very important issue," said Gillispie. 

The Global New Energy Summit () is an annual global event with leaders from science, industry, policy and finance to discuss a broad range of topics that address critical energy issues. GNES continues to attract some of the most influential names in energy.
