(WOUB) - The plan is to try to find ways to make Southeast Ohio "the Silicon Valley" of green energy.

That's the agenda of an energy summit today at Ohio University.

O.U. is teaming with Senator Sherrod Brown's office for what is being called the "first major green energy business conference in southeastern Ohio".

A series of meetings are scheduled this afternoon to discuss the impact of sustainable businesses on economic development, how to promote Southeast Ohio as a green energy center, among other things.

The summit is part of a two day event in Athens co-sponsored by the university and Senator Brown's office.

Brown is scheduled to hold a green energy round table tomorrow at the Voinovich School at O-U.
