Clean Energy and Sustainability Events March 2013

Calendar 2

With sequestration upon us, it will be interesting to see where renewable energy’s future lies. Many of the cuts have been to military expenditures, but renewable energy offers a way forward for reduced utility costs for the Department of Defense. This month, the 8th annual military energy alternatives conference in Washington DC may lay the groundwork for a smaller energy footprint moving forward. Aside from this, there are numerous other domestic options. In fact, there were too many to list here, including one in Westlake Village, CA where I used to live.

Take a look at some of the choice events and peruse our calendar for conferences near you. Please let us know of any conferences, events, or festivals in your area. If they are appropriate, we will gladly add them to our green events calendar. Send us an email with the event’s name, date, location, description, and website. In fact, one of the events listed below was submitted by a reader of the site.

Here are a few of the events happening around the world:

2013 National Bike Summit – Bicycling Means Business
When: Mar 4 – 6, 2013
Description: The National Bike Summit is the premiere advocacy event of the year. More than 800 advocates, government staff, and cycling enthusiasts of all types come together to tell Congress about the benefits of bicycling. And this year we mean business… In pure economic terms, bicycling pours billions of dollars into the U.S. economy, creating jobs and boosting community development from coast to coast. In political terms, bicyclists mean business, too. The united voice of the bike industry, event directors, local riding clubs and advocacy groups is a powerful constituency.
