Second, here's some background on two of our guests tomorrow and the organization they will be talking about:
"The RENEW Energy Initiative is a non-profit business association driven to promote the expansion of alternative energy and energy-efficiency in organizations throughout New England. As a nexus to information, people, capital and other resources REI seeks to fill the energy needs of businesses that boosts efficiencies, reduces carbon emissions and increases corporate competitiveness. Primary service delivery is through a series of member networking events and formal training programs.
