2nd Annual  SE Industrial Energy Efficiency Summit

Our follow up event to last July's inaugural Summit will take place this November 13 and 14 in Nashville, TN at the Em
bassy Suites Hotel at Nashville Airport.

Agenda is coming soon!  It will feature similar elements as last year's event including: the Energy Manager roundtable, Presentations from peers in energy management, Breakout sessions on technologies.  There will be a reception between the two days (and we'll break shortly after lunch on the 14th so you can get on the road). 

More to follow but if you
are interested in presenting, please email the program director, Rick Marsh ASAP.

Energy Efficiency Webcasts Announced

The Industrial EE Network has partnered with EPRI's Industrial Center of Excellence to deliver two energy efficiency focused webcasts.  One will discuss Power Quality and the other will showcase Electric Boiler Technology.

Power Quality Webcast

August 28th

12:00pm ET / 11:00am CT

Poor power quality can lead to unexpected failures and reduced equipment lifespan.  What's more, it has implications on a facility's overall energy intensity metric.

4kV Electric Boiler Webcast

September 25th

12:00pm ET / 11:00am CT

Wait... Really?  The concept of an electric boiler likely elicits some skeptical comments.  But this presentation caught our attention, it might catch yours as well.

Industrial EE Network Director, Rick Marsh, received "Champion of Energy Efficiency in Industry" Award

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) presented four "Champion of Energy Efficiency Awards" at its biennial Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Industry. The awards recognize leadership and accomplishment in the energy efficiency field. Winners are selected based on demonstrated excellence in program implementation, research and development, energy policy, or private sector initiatives.  The four winners were nominated by their peers and selected by a committee of ACEEE’s Board of Directors from an impressive group of over 75 nominations. Selection criteria were based on each nominee’s impact, innovation, and leadership in the energy efficiency field.

"It is an honor to receive this award," said Rick Marsh during the award ceremony. "This recognition speaks to the uniqueness of our program and the void it has filled by uniting manufacturers to drive implementation of energy efficiency measures through peer-to-peer connections.  A sincere thank you to my many colleagues from manufacturing and beyond who have actively participated, shared content with others and hosted events at their facilities.  Thank you also to the Department of Energy and the Energy Foundation for financial support over the years to execute this work as a resource to manufacturing."

Presentations & Video from the Inaugural Industrial EE Summit

Thank you to the attendees of the Industrial Energy Efficiency Summit event held in Nashville during July 2013. Your participation made this event a great success. Presentations are now online so you can review what you learned.  Also, through our partnership with the TN Energy Education Initiative, many of the sessions were video recorded and you can watch the speaker alongside the slide deck.  For those unable to make it, we certainly missed you.  But you don't have to miss out on the Summit's content.
