EE Global Venues Confirmed
EE Global has a history of awarding Denmark for its achievements and leadership in energy efficiency, so it is only fitting that our return abroad in 2018 after 7 years in Washington, D.C. will be to Copenhagen. Copenhagen itself is a beacon of success for energy efficiency, having implemented demand-side management programs using an approach that is based on energy advisory services. This approach underscores the City’s commitment to provide its energy customers with appropriate price signals and then to inform its customers that energy efficiency upgrades are in their best interest.
For EE Global 2018, we’ve selected two venues within the city, and each will add a unique element to the forum fostering the dialogue for which EE Global is known. Our first venue on May 21, UN City, is one of the most sustainable buildings of its kind in Scandinavia. It has received a Platinum LEED certificate and the European Commission’s Green Building Award for New Buildings and was awarded the EE Visionary Award at EE Global in 2016. UN City was awarded and highlighted at EE Global as having cut its predicted energy consumption by 55%, and has hence earned the most energy efficient rating according to the Danish building code. On Tuesday, May 22nd, EE Global will convene at historic Odd Fellow Palae – a designated Green Key award winner in recognition of their commitment to sustainable operation in the tourism industry.
