Decision makers from business, industry and government must now seek integrated energy solutions — solutions which assure both a secure and affordable power supply, and effective management of both energy and overall operational costs. Globalcon 2011, presented by the Association of Energy Engineers, is designed specifically to facilitate those who need to get up to speed on the latest developments in the energy field, explore promising new technologies, compare energy supply options, and learn about innovative and cost-conscious project implementation strategies. The multi-track conference covers a variety of topics, and gives you the opportunity to hear first-hand from some of the major players in the energy field. The Globalcon Expo will emphasize four critical areas of leading edge technology and related services: HVAC and Smart Building Systems Renewable & Alternative Energy / Onsite Generation Lighting Efficiency Plant and Facilities Management The 2011 agenda includes: The cutting-edge Globalcon conference, featuring presentations by leading industry experts A line-up of AEE-sponsored pre-conference seminars The extensive Globalcon expo, where you can explore the latest technologies and services the energy marketplace has to offer.
