COLUMBIA — The links between economic development and green energy are the focus of a regional conference Wednesday at MU.
This is the fourth annual "Advancing Renewables in the Midwest" conference.
Speakers are expected to include Robert Clayton, chairman of the Missouri Public Service Commission. Experts on solar energy, green jobs and power will also give presentations.
Organizers say the conference will emphasize the connection between energy efficiency and economic development, including how to tap the federal stimulus plan for tax incentives or grants.
