Washington D.C. [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The world needs to focus on making our energy consumption more efficient. That was the message put out at the recently concluded Energy Efficiency Global Forum & Exposition (EE Global) in the nation’s capitol put on by The Alliance to Save Energy.
EE Global was designed to bring industry professionals, policymakers, and academics together to forge partnerships and to develop policies and strategies to respond to the climate, national security, and economic implications of the increasing global demand for energy.
The event included an “Energy-Efficiency World’s Fair”-style Public Day, four plenary sessions with high-level international speakers as well as 36 “Executive Dialogue Sessions” with nearly 200 executive-level speakers addressing policy, power generation, market drivers, buildings, transportation, industry, and finance.
Alliance President Kateri Callahan said, “EE Global was established to fill a void by creating a central gathering for all of the world’s industries, government officials, academicians, and others working on energy-efficiency products, policies, studies, and other initiatives.”
Speakers at EE Global included Deputy Secretary of Energy Clay Sell, U.S. Rep. Jim Inslee (D-WA), James R. Leape, director general, World Wildlife Fund International and many others.More information about EE Global as well as updates and recaps from the event can be found at www.eeglobalforum.com
