The 9th Annual Green Energy Summit and exposition that was held March 7 - 9 at the Frontier Airlines Center in Milwaukee, WI was an event filled with the latest ideas in sustainable living. Educators and students from all across the Midwest were representing green energy themed booths to help save the planet.
Many of the area’s colleges were represented at the summit by elite education Associates, Deans, Board Members, Chairs
and even Presidents, such as
MATC’s very own, Dr. Michael L. Burke to welcome, introduce others of importance and entertain the growth and expansion of Green Energy now.
March 7 had topics such as, Drip: Sustainability and the Next Great Comodity and “The water- Energy Nexus : Adding Water to the Energy Agenda” : The Water Energy Food Nexus, which drawed some interest in the importance of our great Lake Michigan as a massive fresh water resource to use more energy wisely.
There were also forums with titles like, “Green Business Perspectives,” a Bio Energy Gas Forum, a Solar Energy Forum, and a session on Sustainable Manufacturing.
Day one ended with a food reception and a cash bar. Day two consisted of possibilities in funding green energy and economic development, concerns of climate changes, and energy efficiency innovation. The final day was a wrap up basically on career opportunities, education and strategies for greener living. Students registered for free as a hallmark of this conference.
