TREEDC to focus on colleges at April meeting in Madisonville

TREEDC-teknoThe Tennessee Renewable Energy and Economic Development Council (TREEDC) will hold its 3rd annual forum with area community leaders and faculty, staff and students of Hiwassee College on April 4 in Madisonville.

The agenda (TREEDC-2014Hiwassee+College) for the event shows a clear focus on colleges – from best practices in sustainability to career opportunities and an update on TREEDC’s International Exchange Program. After the morning presentations that begin at 9 a.m., attendees will hear a luncheon address by Max Shilstone, Director of Business Development for Clean Line Energy Partners. His presentation will describe the Plains & Eastern Clean Line Project, which will connect Tennessee to superb wind resources in Oklahoma through a high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission line.

There is no charge for the forum, which includes a continental breakfast and lunch, but pre-registration is required by April 1. To do so, click here. TREEDC says seating is limited to 100 attendees.
