Energy conference

LAKE PLACID — The North Country Clean Energy Conference will be held at the Conference Center in Lake Placid, 2608 Main St., from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 21, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, June 22.

The idea for the conference came out of the winning North Country Economic Development Council Plan's vision that called for creating the greenest energy economy in the state.

Following a presentation at the North Country Symposium in late 2011, a team started working on developing a conference to identify the projects and investments that will help the region achieve its vision.

The conference will begin Thursday with networking, a student poster session and other activities. Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m.

Friday's session is a full day featuring workshops in six areas: solar, wind, hydro, biomass, biodigesters and conservation. There will be a chance to give input into the NYSERDA-funded Cleaner Greener Communities Sustainability Plan for the North Country.

All meals are included in the admission fee, which is $50 until May 15. After that, $65. Conference sponsors so far include NYSERDA, the North Country Symposium, National Grid and Iberdrola Renewables. The conference is being produced by the Adirondack North Country Association in partnership with the Alliance for Clean Energy New York Inc.
