The theme for the 2020 American Council for and Energy-Efficiency Economy (ACEEE) Summer Study is “Efficiency: The Core of a Clean Energy Future.” The theme was chosen in recognition of the rapidly evolving ecosystem of the energy industry. From resilience to health, from distributed energy resources to renewables to grid integration and virtual batteries, energy efficiency remains critical to our success. Whatever the surrounding goals for expansion of clean energy systems and services, the ability to design and operate efficient buildings is an essential foundational requirement.
Participants of the Summer Study include policymakers; utility staff; architects; builders; financial and insurance professionals involved with buildings; clean-tech investors; building products, equipment, and appliance manufacturers; building owners and operators; engineers; local, state, and federal agency personnel; energy researchers; NGOs; consultants; behavioral scientists; and energy efficiency professionals.
Guidehouse professionals will participate in this virtual conference.
