Forward In Energy Forum

The Wisconsin Energy Institute's (WEI) Forward in Energy Forum brings together experts from across UW–Madison to address the many dimensions of our global transition to clean energy systems. Join us on October 24 at 4:30 pm for our next forum to discuss the bioenergy landscape with a panel led by director of the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center and interim director of the Wisconsin Energy Institute Tim Donohue. Learn what the past ten years of bioenergy research has taught us about producing fuel and other bioproducts from plants - and what the next five have in store.

Registration will open soon for this event. Refreshments will be provided.
