From May 20-21, 2014 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the Alliance to Save Energy will host the seventh EE Global gathering global energy leaders for exclusive discussions aimed at integrating effective policies and business practices to create actionable plans for the next generation of energy efficiency.

Agenda to Showcase Global Speakers Representing All Sectors

Thought leaders from around the world and across the energy sphere will strive to answer the pertinent issues facing our environment, economy and future during 20 Executive Dialogue Sessions and two Plenary Sessions.  Rather than listen to canned pitches or view lengthy PowerPoint presentations, delegates will tackle pressing issues alongside senior energy officials, business executives, efficiency advocates and academic experts who will serve as thought leaders and conversation starters.

From broad-vision plenary to intensive learning sessions, EE Global offers diverse platforms for addressing issues across four main areas: Government Leadership, Market Transformation, the Built Environment, and Investment & Financing.  These four tracks encompass all aspects of the energy efficiency sector, and will enable attendees to push EE forward by discussing barriers, seeking solutions and endorsing action plans.

Content Sessions Provide the Tools to Affect Change

Which policy barriers are the biggest obstacles to EE? How can international governments harmonize their EE efforts?  What will the post-stimulus future look like for the energy market? This year’s government leadership track will tackle these questions and more. Interested in learning which tools are most effective for achieving EE? The market transformation track will look at big data, the ever-changing utility sector, and international standards to determine what works best, what needs to change, and how action can be taken.

Discussions under the built environment track will cover issues ranging from global building best practices, to building management systems, to disclosure and labeling processes; while the investment and financing track will look at the ever important question of money, which capital markets can be unlocked, and which financing mechanisms are the best for EE.

This year’s attendees will have the opportunity to not just hear, but actively engage with business and government leaders about these topics and others making this an EE event like no other.
