Representatives from CADmeleon attended Midwestern Governors Association in Detroit Michigan this month (October). The MGA came together to look at the emergence of a new energy platform and how to drive this in the Mid-West of America, in a proposal that would see a host of new jobs created in a sustainable workforce. The MGA also used this platform to announce their new platform for a new Energy Infrastructure Accord (Infrastructure Accord) and Energy Road Map document.


MGA Chair Jennifer Granholm used the forum to discuss the jobs platform where she outlined the strategy which proposes strategies for creating and maintaining a sustainable workforce. This was backed up with the information on technologies that would boost the Midwest’s stance as leaders in advancements in sustainable energy.


The MGA’s Infrastructure Accord includes agreements by Midwestern governors to expand transmission capacity, adopt smart grid technologies, build new pipelines for biofuels and for the capture and storage of carbon dioxide, and deploy a refuelling system for biofuels and other low-carbon transportation fuels.


As well as discussing the new proposals, the governors and other participants interacted with a select panel of experts discussing the opportunities to develop the sustainable energy infrastructure in the region. Guests included the UK’s own Energy Minister, Joan Ruddock and other representatives from international companies who are involved in the implementation of new energy strategy.
