Conference to bring 500 together from around the country to discuss energy efficiency programs
This will be the first time for Arkansas to host the biennial event first held in 2001. Previous national conferences have been held in Nashville, Denver, Chicago, and Berkeley, California.
“This is a great opportunity for Arkansas ,” said J.D. Lowery, director of the Arkansas Energy Office. “Energy efficiency is becoming increasingly important to individuals, businesses and to utilities across the country. Little Rock will host the nation’s leaders in the energy-efficiency field and we look forward to learning from them and we are also eager to showcase the accomplishments Arkansas has made in energy efficiency. ACEEE’s decision to host this event in Little Rock is no doubt due, in part, to the leadership of our Public Service Commission, our utilities and many other partners who have established Arkansas as an energy efficiency leader in the Southeast.”
More than 500 people attend the conference each year. It is designed to bring together leading experts and utility industry stakeholders including regulatory commissions, state governments, consultants, manufacturers, environmental organizations, consumer groups, and research institutes.
Among the issues discussed at the conference are advances in the design and delivery of customer energy efficiency programs and the regulatory mechanisms that help make them possible.
