Green Michigan conference spotlights sustainable options

New and emerging sustainable technologies will be the focus of Automation Alley’s latest conference – Green Michigan: Now and Tomorrow.

“It’s an overview of where we are in regards to green technology and where we can go,” says Katie Mullin, communications administrator for Automation Alley.

One of the main focuses will be on how to best take advantage of the federal block grants aimed at incorporating sustainable-oriented know-how into the local place. The speakers will also discuss the various ways that green tech is being used throughout the region, and where the future of energy is headed in Michigan.

The conference will be held on Nov. 10 at Automation Alley’s Troy headquarters. Michele Soderstrom, market analyst at NextEnergy, and Conan Smith, executive director of the Michigan Suburbs Alliance, will be the marquee speakers at the event.

The seminar will be held between 8-10 a.m. Registration cost ranges from $20 to $50. For information, call (800) 427-5100 or
