Market Transformation Symposium Overview

Attendees explored cutting-edge ideas, strategies, and collaboration at the premier spring event dedicated to energy efficiency. Participants learned about effective energy-saving programs as well as market opportunities such as big data, connected devices, zero net energy, and distributed resources.

Also, attendees networked with efficiency aficionados from the United States and abroad who are drawn to the annual symposium, now in its 21st year. This three-day event, developed with guidance from an independent advisory committee, featured leading thinkers, experts, and professionals who cover diverse and emerging topics within the scope of market transformation.

MT101

 

Sunday, April 2, 1:00 - 5:00 pm

MT101 training gave newcomers to our industry a strong foundation for their work and a better understanding of how ratepayer funded efficiency programs can be designed to transform the market. Presenters shared market transformation case studies (both local and national), explained the importance of developing a logic model, and described how market transformation programs are evaluated.

Attendees walked away with a clear picture of how market transformation is defined, how efficiency programs can help diffuse innovation, and the elements that constitute a market transformation program. Participants designed a hypothetical market transformation program and gain experience in identifying market barriers and opportunities, the specific market problem(s) we want to solve, and key measureable outcomes.
