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.
