ACEEE 2019 National Conference on Energy Efficiency as a Resource
October 15 - October 17
In October 2019 in Minneapolis, ACEEE will host its tenth National Conference on Energy Efficiency as a Resource (EER), the premier US convening conference on efficiency as a utility system resource. Held every other year since 2001, the conference highlights the latest developments in the design and delivery of customer energy efficiency programs, and in the regulatory mechanisms that help make them possible. Look for a robust discussion of the many issues facing utilities as they acquire and integrate this resource into their planning and operation.
Utilities and system planners now face increasing expectations from policymakers, regulators and customers. There are challenges to integrate technological advancements, modernize the grid, and meet increasing energy and environmental goals… all while constraining costs. These challenges bring opportunities to better integrate energy efficiency to meet those needs. EER19 will have a robust discussion of the many issues facing utilities as they acquire and integrate this resource into their planning and operation.
Utilities and program administrators, regulatory commissions, state government, consultants, manufacturers, environmental organizations, consumer groups, and research institutes.
