The second annual Ohio Manufacturers’ Energy Conference was held Sept. 13 at Westerville’s Quest Conference Center. The event drew more than 220 attendees and covered numerous energy-related topics critical to manufacturers.
The conference featured dozens of presenters, including Lt. Gov. Jon Husted, who spoke about the need for a national energy policy; Cleveland-Cliffs President and CEO Lourenco Goncalves, who discussed his company’s efforts to expand America’s steel manufacturing capacity using clean energy; and Rick Riggle, COO of L-H Battery Co. (LG Energy Solution and Honda), who provided details about the EV battery facility being built by Honda and LG Energy Solution in Fayette County.
