Topics: "Minnesota's Energy Future" & "Alternative Energy Sources" & "Wisconsin Educators form NorthWERD"
Description: What role will "green" energy sources play in our region's future electric needs? We talked with an environmental group, and a representative from Minnesota Power. Also this week, recent studies show Minnesota may have more potential for geothermal electrical generation than previously believed.
And nine Northwestern institutions of higher education are collaborating on NorthWERD, an effort to connect students with jobs in the 21st Century economy.
Guests: Margaret Hodnik, Minnesota Power, J. Drake Hamilton, Fresh Energy; Don Fosnacht, NRRI Center for Applied Research & Technology Development; Dr. Robert Meyer, Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College; Rick Smith, Northland College; Chancellor Renee Wachter, University of Wisconsin-Superior
