Learn and see first-hand the sustainable technology being created in Michigan at the first annual Made in Michigan Renewable Energy Technology Show at Grand Valley State University’s Michigan Alternative and Renewable Energy Center.
Made in Michigan is open to the public March 21-23, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at MAREC, 200 Viridian Drive in Muskegon.
At noon on March 23, Mark H. Clevey from the State of Michigan Bureau of Energy Systems will discuss how the BES supports renewable energy technologies and products in Michigan. Vendors, such as Flint-based solar thermal manufacturer Sunsiaray and Saginaw-based Global Watt, will be on display to highlight technologies and products produced by Michigan-based companies.
Targeted for installers, dealers, distributors, contractors and other businesses as well as the general public, Made in Michigan seeks to bridge the gap between vendors and customers. It also seeks to raise awareness about Michigan’s growing role in building and supplying the “green” economy.
Donations will be accepted and will go toward supporting the 2011 Renewable Energy Technology Science Fair for high school and community college students in the spring.
