Please join the BlueGreen Alliance as we host the Heinrich Böll Foundation for a Legislative Briefing as part of their Midwestern Renewable Energy Tour 2010.
There are insightful comparisons to be drawn between the member states of the European Union and the relationship between the United States Federal and State Governments in regards to enacting public policy that spurs economic growth in the clean energy sector. Former Head of the Renewable Energy Division of the German Energy Agency Christine Wörlen will give an overview of her experience supporting Germany’s effort to incorporate large amounts of renewable energy into the existing energy system and highlight key findings in her report 300,000 Clean Energy Jobs: Lessons learned from the German success story of economic transformation. 

Key policies to be discussed will be ‘Feed-in-Tariffs’ and Property Accessed Clean Energy (PACE).

In addition to Christine, speakers will include:

  • Aaron Peterson: juwi Wind USA, a part of the juwi Group based in Worrstadt, Germany.
  • Laura Arnold: Indiana Distributed Energy Advocates
  • Bowden Quinn: Hoosier Chapter of the Sierra Club
  • Jesse Kharbanda: Hoosier Environmental Council
