Minnesota Project Discussing Community Energy/Biomass at Central Minnesota Alternative Energy Series

April 30, 2009

Dr. Ryan Stockwell, Clean Energy Program Manager, will be participating in a series of forums discussing community energy and economic development opportunities.  See the following information for times and locations.


About the Events

Are you a business owner looking for ways to stretch your operations dollar? Are you interested in learning more about alternative energy technologies? Want to know the ROI of alternative energy technologies? Looking for alternative energy resource information?

 Join us and your peers to learn about these opportunities and to discuss how we can work together to move our  region’s alternative energy industry forward!

These sessions will provide information on:

  • conservation
  • solar
  • wind
  • methane digesters
  • biomass gasification

We will identify the preferred type of location for each technology. Additionally, the consultants will deliver regional assessments that detail the prep studies, installation, ongoing maintenance, and other related expenses as well as tax incentives and funding mechanisms to identify when the “pay back” begins. Not all technologies are fit for each site, consultants will explain barriers to implementation of each technology and how to proceed should business be interested in exploring installation.
Who should attend:

  • business owners/operators seeking conservation/alternative energy information and resources
  • manufacturers
  • health care facilities
  • educational institutions
  • agricultural producers
  • municipalities
  • hospitality industry (resorts, hotels, motels)
  • and other building owners/operators
  • businesses working within the conservation/alternative energy industry
