SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Hundreds of people working in Vermont's renewable energy industry are meeting in South Burlington to help chart a path to the states long-term energy goal.

The goal is to have 90 percent of Vermont's energy come from renewable sources by 2050.

Reaching the goal will create thousands of jobs and help create a cleaner environment.

There are dozens of exhibits from alternative energy companies and a series of workshops focusing on the challenges of reaching the state's 2050 goal.

The conference is being hosted by Renewable Energy Vermont.
