It's Not Green, Unless It's Affordable- Terry McAuliffe

Posted by Thao Nelson - On February 22, 2011 (EST)

"It's Not Green, Unless It's Affordable"- that's  Mr. McAuliffe's motto who's the chairman of GreenTech Automotive Corporation.  He recently spoke at the 2011 Virginia Greenforce Community College Summit where green jobs and energy-efficient technology were the topics of discussion. 

The event was sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation and Jobs for the Future, the conference featured expert panelists who provided information about green job trends in Virginia, opportunities to “green” existing jobs and breakout work sessions where industry experts focused on the three key Greenforce areas:

  • increase access and success rates of lower-skilled adult learners in community college workforce training programs
  • create green career paths that lead to advancement opportunities
  • develop innovative links between on-campus sustainability initiatives and workforce training

Rhonda Simmons recently wrote an article "Going Green" where she highlighted the event and the featured speakers.
