Energy forum kicks off at YSU

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) —  Reusable energy is once again a focus of discussion at Youngstown State University.

Dozens gathered inside Kilcawley Center on Monday for the first of a two-day Sustainable Energy Forum. This is the sixth year for this event on campus, with an emphasis this time on the needs of newer, high-tech innovative manufacturing businesses and how newer energy sources could play a role in the future.

“Some of the technology, some of the new technologies for manufacturing require less energy. There’s a clear benefit associated with it. Some of the new energy resource opportunities we have here in this community,” said Dr. Martin Abraham, dean of the YSU STEM College.

Some of the presenters this year include a Deputy Director with NASA. The event wraps up on Tuesday.
