St. Paul, MN - E3 2009 is the Midwest's premier Energy, Economic and Environmental Conference, on Tuesday, November 17 at the St. Paul RiverCentre. Hosted annually by the University of Minnesota's Initiative for Renewable Energy and the Environment, a signature program of the Institute on the Environment, the E3 conference showcases current technologies, environmental benefits and market opportunities in renewable energy. Each November, scientists, movers and shakers, and policymakers from across the Midwest and beyond join together to share knowledge and discoveries.
How do we provide sustainable fuel, food, fiber and fresh water to a global population of 9 billion people in our lifetime? That's one of the critical issues we'll explore during E3 2009. New this year, the conference features a lunchtime panel discussion with national experts, track sessions focused on the big questions of the 21st century, and a series of "Green on the Ground" workshops.
