Connecting Clean Energy & Broadband
Across North Carolina there are 80 counties that have limited or no access to broadband and other various industry services. What does investment in broadband infrastructure require to enable new business model and service innovation in energy, healthcare and other industries? How can current providers lead or leverage broadband investments to improve services? Join us on August 28th to explore how the connection of clean energy and broadband can create economic opportunities across rural North Carolina.

NCSEA's Making Energy NetWork Roundtables are a new series of informal, statewide gatherings hosted every other month by NCSEA & our business partners/members. Unique in nature but united in purpose, the event series is designed to provide NCSEA members, energy consumers, and industry thought leaders an opportunity to regularly convene and engage in two-way dialogue on specific clean energy issues happening in our state. The roundtables are also another opportunity to reach out to our individual communities, engaging potential members and other stakeholders around NCSEA’s mission and membership value. While the subject matter will vary per event, the agendas for all events will include time for networking and discussion, which is open to all attendees.
The roundtables can be conducted as breakfast, lunch, or evening events. Event sponsorship offers many benefits and is encouraged. Have a suggestion for a future Making Energy NetWork event? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with topic suggestions and hosting or sponsorship inquiries.
