2017 ACEEE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Industry Advancing

Energy Efficiency Through Collaboration

Aug. 15-18, 2017

Denver Marriott City Center

Denver, CO

Industrial Summer Study Overview

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 years past, we’ll explore the latest thinking on managing plant energy use, national energy policy, and program administration. This year, we’ll also include events that will help you take what you learn and turn it into action. We’ll offer more networking sessions to introduce you to people who can help you accomplish mutual goals.
