2015 Pagosa Verde Symposium

 Community Benefits of Renewable Energy and Sustainable Agriculture

Join us this August in Pagosa Springs for the 4th Annual Pagosa Verde Symposium and participate in our ongoing dialogue regarding advancing economic development in rural Colorado with renewable energy and sustainable agriculture. The Pagosa Verde Symposium has brought together experts in renewable resources, alternative energy, and sustainable agriculture to advance rural economic development since 2012. This year will be no exception with an exceptional Line-up of Speakers and Schedule of Events.

As in previous years, community leaders, property owners, and investors will join notable names from academia, private business, and governmental agencies to manifest 21st Century economic development in rural Colorado. To be held in the Aragon Community Center, the format has evolved into a 2-day event with speaker panels and choices of breakout sessions. We have a packed agenda with abundant opportunities for learning, sharing, networking, and socializing. Panels and speakers will cover:

  • Renewable energy policy updates
  • Water conservation and the Colorado Water Plan
  • The changing landscape between rural utilities and renewable energy
  • The AgTech revolution; the intersection of technology and agriculture in the 21st century
  • Advances in combined heat & power, biomass, geothermal and solar technologies
  • Grassroots shifts toward distributed community food production
  • Advantages and benefits of geothermal direct use applications
  • Greenhouse growing with alternative energy and sustainable design
  • Carbon taxes and Rocky Mountain communities
  • Geothermal exploration developments

More details regarding the conference agenda, presenters, and social events will be posted here as the Symposium approaches. Please check back frequently or get updates delivered to your email inbox by signing up for our newsletter.
