“More than 80 attendees from 29 cities, 16 counties and 7 states met to discuss current programs and future statewide developments in renewable energy. Participants took advantage of educational and networking opportunities that focused on growing the renewable energy industry in Tennessee. …”


“The 3 panel type presentations consisted of local government best practices, alternative transportation fuels and renewable electric generation. Topics ranged from cellulosic ethanol, biodiesel, propane, compressed natural gas, electric cars, municipal and county best practices to gasification, wood torrefaction and solar energy.”

The next forum will be in the Tri-Cities in March.
