Energy Symposium: Energy - The Jobs Machine?




7:30 AM - 10:00 AM


Triangle Business Journal
Wake Technical Community College


Energy efficiency seems to be on the tip of everyone's tongues these days. From installing compact fluorescent lamps to maximizing passive solar heating, companies are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprints. However, government regulations and rapid energy-efficient technological advances can make it hard to keep up. And is this green energy craze just a phase, or is this a truly sustainable industry that will prove to be a jobs machine?

Triangle Business Journal's Energy Symposium can help take the headache out of being a responsible steward of the earth and deliver answers that can benefit your business. The event will feature a panel of experts discussing a variety of hot-button environmental issues that affect a number of local industries.

Are you interested in hearing the experts' predictions on where the Triangle fits into future growth plans for energy opportunities? It's a can't-miss event for anyone who does business in the Triangle!
