The 2011 ACEEE Hot Water Forum was held on May 10-12, 2011 at the DoubleTree Berkeley Marina Hotel in Berkeley, California. The Hot Water Forum is the premier technical conference dedicated to evaluating the three fundamentals of the efficient hot water system: heating water, distributing it with low losses, and using it with efficient fixtures and practices.
The 2011 Hot Water Forum brought together manufacturers; water, gas, and electric utilities; government and other program and policy specialists; and other industry representatives to learn from each other and explore the potential of increasing efficiency of hot water generation, distribution, and use (fixtures and appliances). The program featured short, results-oriented talks, supplemented by table-top displays and presentations in the principal networking area.
