Plans are underway for the third national conference on New Ideas in Educating a Workforce in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency. This event will be held in the fall of 2009 in Albany, New York.
“Green” jobs are the foundation for the new clean energy sector emerging across the country. The conference will offer the most current information on instructional strategies, curricula development, and best practices for training in the renewable energy and energy efficiency fields. Pre-conference, technical workshops will be held followed by 2 days of conference sessions.
The date and venue will be confirmed soon. A “Call for Presentations” will be released later this year. Please watch www.irecusa.org for more information or email Jane Weissman at firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on the mailing list.
