Our follow up event to last July's inaugural Summit will take place this
November 13 and 14 in Nashville, TN at the Embassy 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
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
12:00pm ET / 11:00am CT
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.
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.
