Alternative Energy Could be a Part of Local Economic Development Matrix

The 125-delegates of the Energy Technology Summit will warm-up to the talk from Ken Jurman of the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy. He is the manager of the Division of Energy’s renewable energy programs designed to enhance the regional and local economic development efforts and to promote the growth of alternative and renewable energy manufacturing.

Jurman also works with numerous public, private and non-profit organizations to increase the demand for, and use of, renewable and innovative energy technologies.

Jurman, the summit's tenth speaker, currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation, and the Small Wind Certification Council. He is a member of the American Solar Energy Society, and helped in the formation of the Virginia Wind Energy Collaborative.

Norton businessman George E. Hunnicutt, Jr. will introduce the leader of alternative energy development in Virginia.
