Tribal Energy Development in the Great Lakes Conference
20 February 2014
New opportunities for Tribal projects, new policies, regulations and markets
Renewable energy development has become a top priority for many Midwest Tribes seeking to (1) strengthen sovereignty through energy independence, (2) promote environmental stewardship by transitioning from reliance on energy from coal-fired plants that contribute to climate change and contaminate reservation air and waterways and (3) reduce long term energy costs.
This conference focused on opportunities for projects in the Great Lakes area. Discussions include: federal, state and private grant, loan and other incentive programs, long term energy market trends, the practicalities of funding projects, structuring deals, tools for overcoming regulatory hurdles, and the transmission of reservation-generated energy to market and more.
