Ozarks New Energy Conference to focus on solutions for energy independence


It may be your first opportunity to hear how Missouri stimulus dollars for renewable energy will be spent. And it could be your only opportunity to hear, in a single session, the opposing viewpoints on the nuclear option in the state --Ameren UE's Tom Voss and Missourians for Safe Energy's Mark Haim.

These are just two sessions among 24 at the Ozarks New Energy (ONE) Conference April 30 and May 1 in Springfield, Mo. In its second year, ONE 2's "Solutions for Energy Independence" will be held at Missouri State University's Plaster Student Union. Registration, sponsorship and exhibit information are available at www.ozarksnewenergy.org. Registration fees are the same as last year's: non-students pay only $50 for the full conference, including meals, and students may register for free sessions or pay $35 for the full conference.

In addition to stimulus dollars and the nuclear option, nearly 40 speakers will explore power production alternatives, alternative transportation fuels and vehicles, energy-efficient techniques and options, sustainable farming, growing and buying food locally, alternative crops and fuels for farmers, solar and wind applications, taking green products to market, greening your company, energy-efficient building and retrofitting techniques and energy assessment tools and procedures. Economic development sessions are planned for solar, wind, biomass, small hydro and landfill gas.

Sessions on green policy development and implementation, the energy consequences of urban sprawl and training a green workforce will target municipalities and county governments.

Keynote speakers are Kathryn Trudell of the Electric Power Research Institute on "The Power to Reduce CO2 Emissions: The Full Portfolio"; Dr. Debra Rowe of the U.S. Partnership for Education for Sustainable Development on "Education and Action for a Sustainable Future: Healthy Energy Systems, Social Systems and Economies"; Mark Templeton of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and Congressman Roy Blunt, Missouri 7th District, on "The Energy Vision from Jefferson City and Washington, D.C."; and Frank de Jong of the Ontario Green Party on "The Invisible Green Hand."
