Renewable Energy Fair

Last week the Center for Rural Affairs hosted our first (first annual, perhaps) Renewable Energy Fair in Hartington, Nebraska. People from at least three states gathered to talk about farm-scale biofuels, wind production of all scales, energy conservation and more.

You can read three media accounts here, here and here. Read our own account here. And here are some pictures from the event: 

I've taken up an internal lobbying campaign to have next year's event in the home town of our main office, Lyons, Nebraska. Check back with me in a year to see if I am successful.

During the 1970s the Center was home to the well-known Small Farm Energy Project, and hosted similar events at the time.
