Here's a link to a podcast featuring some of our Retool'22 speakers, talking about NY's Climate Action goals and how manufacturers have opportunities in the climate tech/clean tech sector. Energy Evolution Podcast Retool'22

We had a great time hosting Retool'22 in Jamestown (NY) October 17-19.
We accomplished our goals -- to Listen, Learn, Meet, Discover.

Great keynotes, featured speakers, and panelists, and lots of networking as well as an EV showcase that included an all-electric bus owned by the Niagara Frontier Transit Authority and built by New Flyer.

All of these pics were taken by our photographer from 3 5 8 Productions.
