By | November 01, 2002
The 3rd Annual Harvesting Clean Energy conference, will be held this year in conjunction with the Idaho Ag Summit February 10-11, 2003 in Boise, Idaho. Its organizers say Harvesting Clean Energy is the Northwest's premiere conference bringing together the agriculture and energy industries to explore rural economic opportunities in clean energy production. The Idaho Ag Summit is the Idaho agriculture industry's "most important annual event." The conference is designed to provide a forum for farmers and agriculture leaders, tribes, rural utilities and economic development officials, lenders, and elected officials in the Northwest, as well as public agencies and renewable energy developers. The event serves as an opportunity to learn from those with direct experience in successful built projects, to network, and to make progress toward new clean energy production in the Northwest. The conference will focus on large and small-scale wind power, biogas digesters, biofuels, and solar- and wind-powered irrigation and stock watering systems.
