CERTs Conference Testimonials The CERTs 2011 Clean Energy Convergence united Minnesotans who are blazing the paths to a clean energy future by working on energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in their communities. The event brought together over 600 engaged community members on February 2-3, 2011 in Saint Cloud, MN!

Converge: CERTs 2011 was a venue for both broad and in-depth learning opportunities, connecting and networking with engaged community members, and taking action on energy efficiency and clean energy projects. The event began with In-Depth Workshops and an Evening Reception on February 2nd, and continued with a Daylong Conference on the 3rd.

Learn: At CERTs 2011 attendees learned from experts and community members alike on what it takes to get projects done. They found out how individuals and communities are partnering, planning, funding, and implementing projects. They heard success stories and models that demonstrate how to become more energy efficient and harness clean energy while strengthening local economies and protecting the environment.

Connect: CERTs 2011 provided networking opportunities for attendees to connect with Minnesotans of all stripes—community leaders, energy experts, local government staff, teachers and students, utility representatives, business owners, homeowners, farmers—and more. All have the same goals: saving energy, saving money, creating jobs, and powering our future renewably.
