We exist to provide, promote, and advocate energy conservation.

AECP held its 7th annual Green Living and Energy Expo at the Roanoke Civic Center on December 1 and 2, 2006. Almost 1500 people attended and as always admission is free.

There were 50 exhibits and several workshops covering a wide variety of topics including energy conservation, energy efficiency, renewable energy, green building, and sustainability.

Workshops included Green Building, Green Sanctuaries, Peak Oil, Green and Living Roofs, The House of Pressure, Sustainable Forestry and Products, and Green Products and the Environment.

AECP is a non-profit energy education and advocacy organization that believes a better-educated general population is the solution to a more secure, independent, clean, and energy future. People have the power to make better decisions and smarter choices in their home, business, and lifestyle that will save money, save energy, save on our natural resources, and help preserve the environment. Fuel prices are rising steadily, the environment continues to be at risk from unnecessary energy production and use, and the threat of global warming is increasing daily. The Green Living and Energy Expo is an opportunity for professionals, homeowners, consumers, and students to be inspired, informed, and enabled about important issues that can change their lives and the lives of others.
