I recently saw a crowd gathered around a booth at a large energy conference—people craning their necks for a better view, smiling, nodding, and in the end, breaking into vigorous applause. “What for?” I wondered.

I would like to thank everyone who participated in or sponsored the REAP Workshop in Grand Island, Nebraska last week. It was a very informative and educational workshop with over thirty people in attendance. We look forward to bringing this content to more folks in the near future via additional workshops. If you are interested in hosting a similar workshop, please contact email@example.com.
While those of us down there were in the workshop, Jill Cliburn presented a webinar on Community Owned Renewable Generation. This webinar is now available in the Videos section and the webinar slides are available under the Utilities section.

Another source of inspiration is the website of the Behavior, Energy, and Climate Change Conference. This is now an annual conference, which is largely focused on local planning in action. That is, what kinds of local programs and activities might you aim for, considering which have proven exciting and successful already? See www.beccconferenece.org and don't miss the YouTube videos of conference "lightening presentations". Also, look for a trend among presentations that use social networking, competitions, and other new marketing techniques. CEA has tapped these resources from time to time for our own work.
