Energy 2030 @ EE Global: Escalating Energy Productivity Worldwide
Thought Leaders from across the energy and economic spectrums will discuss barriers, solutions and action plans during the 20 Executive Dialogue Sessions and two Plenary Sessions which seek to answer the pertinent issues facing our environment, economy and future.
One prominent issue addressed at EE Global 2013 is increasing energy productivity through investment, modernization, and education. These three pillars are central to the Alliance’s recently unveiled Energy 2030 policy recommendations, which call for a doubling of U.S. energy productivity by 2030. The policy recommendations included in Energy2030 were developed by the Alliance Commission on National Energy Efficiency Policy, an influential group of leaders in energy and environmental policy from the business, government, academic, and nonprofit sectors.
EE Global attendees will have the opportunity to hear from business and government leaders, including Jeff Fettig, Chairman & CEO of Whirlpool Corporation, during the opening plenary session, which addresses the “Next Generation of EE: Driving Productivity through Investment, Modernization, and Education”. Additionally, EE Global will offer an in-depth look at the Alliance’s Energy 2030 report, during an intensive learning session on Tuesday afternoon.
Visionaries Advance EE
EE Global will also honor incredible leaders within the global energy efficiency community who are already advancing energy efficiency through investment, modernization and education at the 2013 EE Visionary Awards Luncheon. Selected by the EE Global International Steering Committee, the EE Visionary awards are bestowed on entities from various regions of the world (the Americas, Africa-Middle East, Asia-Pacific and Europe).
Director General of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization Dr. Kandeh Yumkella is a 2013 EE Visionary Award recipient, representing the pillar of education. He is being honored for his unfaltering efforts and work on the Sustainable Energy for All initiative, educating a global force to advance energy efficiency.
The City of Suzhou will receive the modernization EE Visionary Award in recognition of their steadfast commitment to upgrading the city through the promotion and implementation of energy efficiency and demand side management programs, including their voluntary “Energy Efficiency Star” rating system, which is China’s first energy efficiency labeling scheme for companies.
