U.P. Clean Energy Conference Series

This conference series will build awareness and interest among opinion leaders in the Upper Peninsula about opportunities for clean energy solutions that will work in the U.P., and mobilize that enthusiasm to call on the U.P. Energy Task Force for policies and programs that will support a faster and more beneficial transition in the U.P. And while it will be a virtual on-line conference, it will also promote more networking among U.P. leaders to encourage collaborative efforts and learning about clean energy.
