Federal departments work together to advance renewable energy

By | September 01, 2006
An opportunity to focus on accelerating President George W. Bush's Advanced Energy Initiative-via biomass, wind, and solar energy developments-will be available in the heartland next month. "Advancing Renewable Energy: An American Rural Renaissance," cohosted by the USDA and the U.S. DOE, will be held Oct. 10-12 in St. Louis, Mo.
Featured speakers include Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman; Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns; and Red Cavaney, president and CEO of the American Petroleum Institute. Conference cohosts say the event will identify major impediments, review challenges and make recommendations to help accelerate renewable energy technology development. It will also examine key incentives that would help reduce risk for investors and developers in the marketplace, and review development challenges with new distribution systems.

A broad array of interested parties and stakeholders in government, as well as the private sector, are welcome to register. For more information about the conference, visit www.AdvancingRenewableEnergy.com.
