Rural Renaissance Registration

Cindy Zimmerman

USDA-DOE conference Registration is now open for Advancing Renewable Energy: An American Rural Renaissance, a national renewable energy conference that will be hosted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of Energy October 10-12 at America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

The conference will focus on achieving goals outlined in President Bush’s Advanced Energy Initiative, which seeks to change the way we power our cars, homes and businesses through the use of alternative energy sources.

Attendance is open to the public. Anyone involved with, or interested in, renewable energy is encouraged to attend, including transportation, large- and small-scale farming, finance and investment officials, as well as academia, and federal, state, government and elected officials. Registration is required and the cost is $495 before October 1. After that it goes up to $595, or $695 at the door. So, if you think you want to go, better register soon.
