The Tennessee Renewable Energy & Economic Development Council (TREEDC), a statewide grassroots renewable energy organization formed by the University of Tennessee Institute for Public Service in 2008, conducted another successful trade visit with its Philippine stakeholders across the Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao this summer.
TREEDC started its International Exchange program with the Renewable Energy Association of the Philippines in 2012. During this recent visit, TREEDC entered into memorandums of agreements of technical assistance and educational capacity building with Catanduanes State University, San Beda College and Central Mindanao during the Philippine Association of Program Implementers Association (PAEPI) Annual Conference in Manila. TREEDC and the UT Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS) also shared best practices in municipal governance with a host of cities across the Philippines.
