Now in its 12th year, Harvesting Clean Energy consistently draws over 500 participants from a diverse range of fields – from motivated farmers, ranchers and other rural landowners to professionals from agriculture and forestry associations, rural utilities, tribes, economic development agencies, and research institutions, to lenders, energy developers and consultants, and representatives of federal, state and local government.
The conference rotates between Oregon, Washington, Montana and Idaho each year. Drawing on several dozen top-notch speakers, Harvesting Clean Energy focuses on the practical steps to successful project development, from economic and feasibility assessments, to accessing technical support and securing financing amidst tough finance markets. The energy opportunities addressed include wind power, a range of bio-energy technologies, solar and geothermal resources, microhydro, energy innovation in the food processing sector, and efficiency technologies to reduce energy costs and enhance profitability. The conference also looks at strategies to maximize local job creation and economic benefits from developing our clean energy resources.
