About 4:50pm local time, pool entered the Mandalay Bay ballroom, which is packed (note on crowd count below).
Banners and screens reading "National Clean Energy Summit 8.0 — Powering Progress" are all over the room.

At 5pm sharp, Brandon Flowers (best known as vocalist/keyboardist/frontman of The Killers) took the stage, saying he was invited by Sen. Harry Reid. He and two accompanying guitarists then played a little tune for the crowd.

Jim Murren, chairman and CEO MGM Resorts International, took the stage next. "Mandalay and this summit I believe are a perfect fit," he says, pointing out this is the third year the summit has been held here. He also announces MGM will reduce energy consumption 20% by 2020.

Murren then introduces Sen. Harry Reid.

Reid's remarks, along with those from POTUS, are open press and streaming live.

Crowd count, from Jennifer Taylor, exec director of Clean Energy Project: "We have sold out at 700 tickets and had an additional 300 attendees between volunteers, staff and speakers"
