TAEBC’s annual meeting in Nashville on March 26 served as a forum for members to provide feedback on 2015 projects and priorities that foster the growth of Tennessee’s advanced energy jobs, companies and technologies. As well as determine the best role for TAEBC to serve as a champion, facilitator and convener of advanced energy projects and initiatives. Topics covered during the meeting included TAEBC membership, 2015-2016 event calendar, Tennessee Advanced Energy Economic Impact Report release strategy and 2014 successes.
Members agreed the greatest value of their TAEBC membership is networking opportunities and increased visibility of the industry. To build on this, TAEBC will launch a 12-month event calendar this summer. It will include another member delegation visit to Washington D.C. to meet with the U.S. Department of Energy to get our members questions answered and problems solved.
At the request of our members, TAEBC will submit comments on TVA’s draft Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). Comments will align with our mission and we’ll use the Tennessee Advanced Energy Economic Roadmap as the foundation for our remarks. Members who would like to be involved in commenting on the IRP should contact Allie.
