Agenda

This year highlights disruptive innovations that are contributing to the transformational changes in the clean energy sector and track-focused workshops will allow practitioners from across the industry (municipal leaders, private partners, non-profits, etc.) ample opportunity to share and learn how we do good work that brings benefit to our communities while meeting goals and forming valuable partnerships. 

 


Highlights include:

  • Plenary Panels: experts in their fields will host moderated discussions focused on disruptive elements that are currently shaping the transformation of the clean energy sector in the North Country region. 
  • Workshop Breakouts: sector-specific tracks and smaller groups will allow practitioners the opportunity to explore plenary topics and others in more depth.
  • (MORE) Dedicated Networking Time: You talked and we listened!! More time to talk and network with presenters, exhibitors and other attendees has been added ot this year's programming schedule. 
  • Evening Receptions: relax and meet some of our fabulous partners at one or both of our socials.

 

Summaries and speaker bios for the elements listed in the Agenda will be added as they are finalized in August and September.
