I was truly humbled and honored to accept Renewable Energy Leadership Award from Winnebago County Board Chair, Scott Christiansen, during the 2nd Annual Northern Illinois Renewable Energy Expo and Summit earlier this month!

Winnebago County & Freedom Field hosted the Second Annual Northern Illinois Renewable Energy Expo and Summit here in Rockford. It was a great success. Over 140 attendees from around the Midwest. Lidköping and Skaraborg had the great privilege to be part of the welcome presentations. Lidköping´s Mayor, Kjell Hedvall and Lidköping´s Environment Strategist, Yvonne Träff had recorded a vide greeting that was played.

Winnebago County has been an outstanding partner from day one in the Industrial Partnership Agreement. Next year, I hope you will have a Swedish delegation attend. Please remember that we have an International Energy Collaboration Agreement with Freedom Field here in Rockford (in the County of Winnebago), which allows Swedish companies to show case their products at Freedom Field!!
