The first in our EE Global webinar series focuses on the results of Johnson Controls’ 2019 Global Energy Efficiency Indicator survey, which tracks current and planned investments, key drivers, and organizational barriers to improving energy efficiency in facilities. With reference to historical EE Indicator Survey data, Clay Nesler explores what the surveys revealed about companies’ priorities during the economic recovery from the 2009 recession; in the context of the 2019 data, he then discusses what these historical lessons can teach us about what may come next. EEGA panelists Jeff Eckel of Hannon Armstrong, Joyce Henry of Natural Resources Canada, He Ping of Energy Foundation China, and Monica Frassoni of the European Alliance to Save Energy provide regional perspectives on the survey and discuss how the results can inform the EE community’s actions to accelerate national and global economic recovery.
Description: While digital transformation of corporations had been a growing trend in 2019, the coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the trend into the here and now. The rapid market integration of the internet of things (IOT), artificial intelligence, and advances in network communications present an enormous energy and climate policy opportunity. This “digitalization” could unleash transformative changes needed to develop a system more resilient to future climate-related risks to our public health, economy, environment, and national security. This panel will discuss the role these digital tools have played in helping flatten the curve with the pandemic response and how it could help flatten the climate crisis curve, as well.

Description: The Three Percent Club, launched at the 2019 Climate Action Summit, is a coalition of countries and supporting companies and organizations that have committed to work together to put the world on a path to three percent annual energy efficiency improvement. This virtual roundtable will focus on the importance of maintaining climate and energy efficiency goals during the current public health and economic crisis. Presenters will discuss the Three Percent Club’s goals within the context of the COVID-19 crisis and how its collaborative platform can provide support to countries as they navigate the current economic and geopolitical situation and look ahead at plans for the coming recovery.

Description: Energy management has been a key component of 3M’s sustainable manufacturing efforts for over 40 years. In the early 2010s, alongside the Department of Energy, 3M piloted two manufacturing plants to help develop the ISO 50001 standard. As of 2018, 3M has 31 global sites certified to ISO 50001; 14 of which have taken the additional step to achieve Superior Energy Performance certification. On average, 3M sites through the ISO 50001 program perform 6% better (normalized energy savings) than otherwise. The success of these sites supports 3M’s Climate and Energy Goals and establishes commitment from senior management to pursue ISO 50001 for all sites, integrating energy into business and every day operations companywide. We have a rigorous Enterprise system that has a dedicated team for US and Canada capable of leading 16 new sites to certification in 2020. This poses a significant reduction in internal and external resources, costs and timeline. In this session, we will be exploring the challenges, the successes and the path forward for companies pursuing ISO 50001.
Speakers: Andrew Hejnar, Energy Manager, 3M Canada Company; Pete Langlois, Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Program Manager, U.S. Department of Energy; Jon Vieth, Sales Manager, CWB Group
Description: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the European Economic Recovery Plan were two massive stimulus packages passed in 2009 to counter the effects of the economic slowdown. In this webinar, experts from both continents will reflect on the role of energy efficiency in these packages, the legacy of the stimuli on efficiency and our energy systems today, and lessons learned for governments and the private sector around the world as we plan for stimulus and recovery investments.
