Over the past several years, awareness and activism for a more sustainable planet has transcended picket lines and small protests and risen to the level of corporate and political change.While world leaders continue to bicker about money and energy, the Energy Efficiency Global Forum is providing a platform for the leading minds in the field to network, to build partnerships, and to inspire change. This traveling event is returning to Washington D.C. this May, and the invitation-only function will bring hundreds of high-powered policy makers and executives together for conversation and collaboration.
The two-day forum will be divided into a series of meetings, networking events, tours, and workshops. EE Global will begin on Tuesday, May 12th with an Opening Plenary Session, where industry leaders will discuss ways to alter the world’s current utility model and to accommodate a rapidly-changing landscape of energy usage. This year’s thought leaders include members of the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
The following morning, there will be another Plenary Session led by a panel of government officials and CEO’s discussing plans to double energy productivity by 2030.
Education is at the forefront of this industry event, but networking holds equal importance. During the forum, there will be several networking events where attendees can meet one another and mingle over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. One of the networking events will also feature a tour of the Canadian Embassy, which has recently undergone an energy efficiency renovation.
This high-powered gathering is a major opportunity for industry members. But to those not in attendance, the Energy Efficiency Global Forum and Exhibition is proof that relevant and meaningful conversations are taking place to improve the world’s energy crisis.
