Industrial energy efficiency has always been about people. The latest technologies often get the most attention but it’s the people who manage the plant, find the opportunities, develop the solutions, and make the decisions – large and small – that determine the efficiency of today’s facilities. It’s more challenging than ever to go it alone and that is why in 2017 we’re focused on developing the community of people involved in industrial energy efficiency.
As in past years, the 2017 ACEEE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Industry has brought you the latest thinking on managing plant energy use, national energy policy and industrial energy efficiency program administration. However this year we’re including events that will help you take what you learn and turn it into action. There will be more networking time and sessions designed to introduce you to people who can help you accomplish mutual goals.
Find out which organizations participated in the 2015 Summer Study Industry here.
Likely Participants Include: Energy efficiency program administrators, evaluators, and contractors; public utility commission and consumer counselor staff members, corporate energy managers and government relations professionals; professionals in the utility sector with responsibilities for efficiency programs, resource planning, regulatory compliance and government relations; energy efficiency solution providers; state energy office officials; energy management firms; and energy efficiency advocacy organizations.
The Call for Papers is now closed. Notifications about abstract status will be sent out in early February 2017.
Panel Leaders: Martin Lott, Cascade Energy and Peter Therkelsen, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Panel Leaders: Anna Chittum, American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy and Jon Feldman, Independent Electricity System Operator
Panel Leaders: Jess Burgess, Consortium for Energy Efficiency and Nick Dalziel, CLEAResult
The Action Sessions will combine the best of the informal sessions (i.e. smart attendees getting together on what’s important to them) along with facilitators who will structure the process so that each session leads toward a solution and/or clear next steps.
