There are already 300 people registered for the CERTs 2013 Conference, with many more joining each day. We hope you’ll choose to come, too—but we know you want to find out what you’ll get out of the program!
The CERTs Conference is two days—February 20-21, 2013. It’s taking place at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud, MN. You can see the full agenda here, but we wanted to take this moment to tell you more about the pre-conference Workshops on Wednesday the 20th.
|| Solar: Taking Your Project from Dream to Reality – Join solar professionals, Minnesotans with installed projects, and peers to talk about real, concrete steps toward moving your solar project forward. There will be opportunities to discuss your project with a variety of solar professionals. To prepare, feel free to come with your virtual solar site assessment and photos of your site.
| Local Governments: Moving Efficiency & Renewable Energy Projects Forward – Is your local government looking for rules of thumb for energy efficiency or wondering if renewable energy is the right fit for you? This workshop will emphasize the sorts of energy-saving projects that local units of government should do now, and focus on why certain technologies are a good fit for certain uses.
|| Utilities: Sharing Best Practices to Meet Conservation Goals – This workshop will highlight case studies from utilities and their partners across Minnesota to see what’s working, what isn’t working, and discuss how to evaluate programs. Programs include geographical targeting, behavior change opportunities, scalable technology-focused projects, and smart measures, among others.
