Anyone interested in Energy! Non-residential building owners; tenants; local government officials; energy efficiency service providers; nonprofits and associations that support the energy and/or building community; anyone interested in learning about the Montgomery County energy initiatives.
There will be interactive discussions, trainings, and one-on-one consultations with the DEP, US EPA, utilities and vendors about the benchmarking process, how to get started, and how to improve your score. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage directly with:
* ENERGY STAR on how to benchmark in portfolio manager.
* Pepco to discuss incentives for improvements and educational programs for building staff.
* Washington Gas to understand your gas bill and find opportunities for savings.
* Vendors that can help advance energy efficiency in your buildings.
* Montgomery County DEP about benchmarking and other new programs in the county.
“As we are engaging with the building community around the benchmarking law, we’re finding that a lot of folks are already benchmarking and reaping positive financial and other benefits,” says Michelle Vigen of the Montgomery County DEP. “The Energy Summit is the perfect opportunity to start your benchmarking process, learn from others that have already done it, and begin to reap those same energy-saving benefits.”
This event is hosted by the USGBC National Capital Region Chapter’s Montgomery County Branch, and is sponsored by Pepco, Siemens, Boland, EnergyCAP, Therrien Waddell Construction, and Washington Gas. Visit the webpage to learn more and register!
