Join fellow energy educators to share, learn and network in order to become a more effective energy educator. This biennual summit is an effort of the ANREP National Extension Energy Initiative, USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, University of Tennessee Extension and Tennessee State University Extension. Keynote speakers, panel discussions, presentations and workshops by local, state and national experts from public and private sectors will help us understand policies, regulations and perceptions that affect energy research and education opportunities. Oral and poster presentations will highlight energy research and education programs. Optional post-conference tours will visit innovative bioenergy facilities and tour sustainability efforts in the urban and university campus settings.
