Allentown nonprofit Sustainable Energy Fund (SEF) landed over $100,000 in grants from the West Penn Power Sustainable Energy Fund to host an energy conference called Energypath featuring energy design conference Energy Sprout and preceded by classroom-based education series Energy Camps.
SEF, which works to educate the public on the barriers surrounding sustainable energy, was able to stretch $100,500 into a full event series and still have some pocket change leftover to offer via scholarships for students interested in traveling to the conference.
SEF CEO and President John Costlow said the event will bring “students, educators and thought leaders together” to discuss sustainable energy solutions.
Energy Sprout will feature businesses, individuals and communities competing to win grants up to $100,000 for innovative sustainable energy products and business models.
The conference will be held July 28 and 29 in State College, but attendees interested in learning more about the technologies that drive sustainable energy solutions should take note of SEF’s Energy Camps series, July 25 to 27.-30-
