Gov. Jim Doyle, D-Wis., and Manitoban Premier Greg Selinger have announced the first two clean energy bilateral workshops between Wisconsin and Manitoba. The first workshop, focusing on regional climate modeling, will be held in Winnipeg this summer. The second workshop, focusing on the clean energy economy and growing clean energy jobs, will be held in Wisconsin this summer. Further details will be announced in the near future.
The workshops are the first in a series originally announced by Doyle and Selinger at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, last December. Manitoba and Wisconsin work together as partners in the Midwestern Greenhouse Gas Accord.
The workshops are a first step towards implementing the Wisconsin-Manitoba memorandum of understanding signed in October 2009, which promotes the growth of innovation through collaboration, commercialization and bilateral trade.
