Sue Coakley and other efficiency advocates will meet in Denver for The Energy Foundation's Energy Efficiency Advocates annual meeting to discuss strategies to advance energy efficiency at the local, state, and federal levels. This invitation-only meeting will offer a forum for new and seasoned advocates to share strategies and best practices. There will also be ample time for networking with friends and colleagues.
Sue will speak on a panel discussing strategic electrification and comprehensive energy efficiency The session will take place on April 19 and offer a high-level view of the many elements at play as we transition to a cleaner utility of the future. With more stakeholders looking toward a goal of strategic electrification, how do we unify around a definition? Are there regional differences we should consider? How do we ensure that energy efficiency continues to play an important role in the utility of the future? This session will also address non-utility pathways that facilitate electrification like building energy codes and appliance standards, and consider how advocates should approach natural gas efficiency programs throughout this transition.
