This year’s awards are open to individuals, organizations, businesses and villages and municipalities in four categories:  Chairman’s Energy Conservation Award, Renewable Energy Business Innovation Award, Renewable Energy Rural Initiative Award, and Renewable Energy Urban Initiative Award.

This year’s event will feature an expert panel and three keynote speakers. Attendees will learn about energy options available now, network with industry experts and local businesses already utilizing efficient energy practices, and gain a better understanding as to how renewable energy practices can be applied in the future.
