North Country Clean Energy Conference

North Country Energy Conference

North Country Energy Conference

Our friends serving the Adirondack Mountain region of New York and beyond are planning the third North Country Clean Energy Conference at the Lake Placid Conference Center in Lake Placid, New York, June 4-6, 2014.

The Appalachian Trail does not grace the otherwise graceful Adirondacks, but support those who protect and preserve our land.

This conference is the North Country's "signature clean energy event." Members of the energy industry, educators, practitioners, community leaders, and users of energy services meet to discuss such topics as:

  • Savings through energy efficiency and conservation
  • The largest wind farm concentration in NYS
  • The production of 2,200 megawatts of clean hydropower and
  • The potential to develop a thermal energy economy based on local biomass.

Training sessions and field trips will be added to the 2014 conference.

There's still time for your input. The North Country Conference Planning Team is requesting "abstracts for presentations." My guess is that means they're looking for speakers and session leaders.

If your presentation might help inform and motivate people in Northern New York to achieve a more sustainable energy future, please contact the conference team. The deadline for submission is February 28, 2014.

Sessions will be moderated. Presentations should be about 30 minutes long, with 20 minutes for content and 10 minutes or so for questions and answers.

Presenters accepted by the conference team will receive a reduced conference registration rate.

Help keep Lake Placid, the Adirondacks and our land everywhere pristine by attending this conference ... and then working for clean energy.
