Join us for our 8th Annual Renewable Energy Summit on Thursday, January 17th!  

When it comes to renewable energy, Wisconsin needs to think big and think about tomorrow. Over the past few years, we’ve made game-changing investments in distributed and large-scale renewable energy. To continue this momentum we need an expanded workforce serving the clean energy marketplace as well as the infrastructure to support continued growth.

Join renewable energy industry experts, utility leaders, government officials, and advocates at Scaling Up for the Job Ahead. Learn, network, and prepare for a great 2019 as Wisconsin’s renewable energy landscape advances to make our state a better place for all of us to live, work, and play.
