For the last few months, the CED team has had energy on our minds. Between the excellent Rural Energy Conference last week, the release of the Renewable Energy Emerging Sector report, and the VOLT49 Showcase this week, it's a subject we can't avoid.
Nine months ago we were drinking coffee while discussing about how our state economy is changing and lamenting that no one had spent time exploring emerging industries with growth potential. And then we realized - why not us? We teamed up with the Division of Economic Development to conduct a series of reports, each profiling an emerging sector.
