This virtual, two-day event will feature innovative leaders from across the energy sector who will share their visions and strategies for bringing alternative energy to Ohio, in front of an audience of both private and public stakeholders. 


Hosted by the Energy Coalition of Ohio, the Ohio Energy Conference will headline notable presenters, including Steve Melink, Founder and CEO of Melink Corporation; Matt White, Chief Legal Officer at IGS; and Geoff Greenfield, President of Third Sun Solar. Renowned panelists in the energy industry will tackle topics from carbon reporting to financing renewable energy projects.
