Energy and Manufacturing Associations

It may seem odd that a marketing blog such as this would have manufacturing and energy information on it, but I have a good reason. Trade and professional associations and societies provides tremendous value to both industry and individuals. And because most of my clients are manufacturers or engineers of different fields, I provide this list as a resource for them. Plus, due to my personal passion for renewable energy, efficiency and sustainability, I lead the list with associations dedicated to that field. Frankly, it is my hope you will be encouraged to check these energy-related organizations out, to learn what they are doing to further the energy generation technology they are dedication to. Those of you interested in manufacturing and electronics, I hope this is a useful resource of information for you. We are happy to provide these, along with standards and safety organizations for your benefit. I am probably missing some, so please feel free to add in a comment any you are aware of that might provide value to other visitors.
