OREP's monthly webinar focuses on feed-in tariffs in Germany

If you're interested in building the social and political supports for locally-produced renewable energy, check out the audio recording of Oregonians for Renewable Energy Policy's January Conference Call, now available on OREP's website at the Webinars page.

Guest speakers Rep. Jules Bailey, a state senator representing southeast Portland, (D-OR, district 42) and Jeff Bissonnette, organizing director for the Citizens's Utility Board of Oregon, shared their experiences from their recent Climate & Energy Study Tour to Germany.

OREP secured places for Bailey and Bissonnette to participate in the study tour this past December. The tour was sponsored by the American Council on Germany, and it enabled participants to learn directly from German government officials, business leaders and researchers about Germany's successful climate/energy policies. Jules and Jeff generously agreed to share their impressions, a portion of what they learned firsthand during their intensive study tour and answer audience questions.

If you have questions after listening to the audio, please feel free to contact either of our speakers directly:

Jeff Bissonnette

The OREP team thanks everyone who participated in this well-attended conference call.
