Outreach Underway To Veterans, Women, Minority Businesses & Skill Seekers

 Green Energy Business Opportunities Conference Set for May 14, 2010


Baltimore, MD [CapitalWirePR] December 30, 2009 –   Maryland will host a national conference to better understand business and career opportunities in the rapidly emerging Green Economy.  Scheduled for May 13-14, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency in Baltimore’s historic crossroads of commerce, the Inner Harbor. The summit has been convened by the prestigious President’s Round Table.  Minority owned businesses, utility companies, venture capital firms and non-profit business advocacy organizations are being recruited for inclusion.   Highlighting business trends in energy efficiency and green energy is the program priority.  In addition, a dedicated track will showcase dynamic career paths in energy efficiency and renewables.

For veterans, women, minority and traditionally disadvantaged small business owners, this is an opportunity to learn more about cutting edge business opportunities in Energy Efficiency. Topics to be addressed include energy audits; residential and commercial building retrofits; and energy efficiency products and materials. Panels will discuss Renewable Energy business opportunities in the increasingly critical solar, wind, geothermal and alternative fuel areas. 

“The whole country is on the verge of major changes in energy supply and demand. Maryland and North Carolina have emerged as cutting edge pioneers on the East Coast. This conference will give small businesses an opportunity to understand the energy environment, plan business growth and find financing. It’s time to catch the green energy wave” said Stanley Tucker, Chairman of the Board of the Baltimore President’s Round Table.

A special Career Track and Expo will introduce career seekers to ‘in-demand’ skills needed by the green energy industry. Knowledgeable advisers will provide insight into current job openings, compensation and long term prospects.  State regulators and college advisors will share certification and training program availability as well as financing programs to secure that training.  

Speakers from national energy research organizations, major utilities, Federal and state energy agencies, educational institutions and investment capital firms will present current news on legal guidelines, stimulus funding, the power outlook (particularly demand and pricing dynamics) and impending procurement contracts.
