Teachers, students, and local professionals gathered Friday to talk about ways to prepare for energy usage in the future.
The event called "Tomorrow's Energy Technology" was held at CVTC in Eau Claire Friday.
Business people from agriculture, construction, transportation, and energy industries talked about the trends, challenges, and opportunities coming in the future of energy.
CVTC President Bruce Barker says "As our economy recovers we have to look at what the new growth industry is, and in West Central WI, renewable fuel can certainly be a growth industry."
Leaders at CVTC say they're working towards improving their curriculum and facilities to give students a hands-on education.
