It is truly an “all hands on deck” moment. The Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region, along with the rest of the United States, is faced with an unprecedented opportunity to transform the building sector.
Thanks to funding from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), new opportunities to advance building energy efficiency and decarbonization, foster equitable outcomes, build a new local workforce, and develop lasting programs and approaches are abundant. Extraordinary collaboration between state and local governments, program administrators, community-based organizations, contractors, utilities, and more is required to drive success and impact.
The NEEP Summit will bring energy practitioners, state and local policy makers, utility experts, industry leaders, and problem solvers together in a wide range of collaborative, interactive sessions, small topical breakout working groups, and informal engagement opportunities. Case studies, models, pathways, and tangible solutions that work today and can be scaled with federal funding will be workshopped. Cutting through the noise, the Summit will deliver the solutions and relationships you need to understand, access, and utilize resources to achieve long-term success.
