Energy Conservation Conversation to promote energy and cost savings
On November 9, the Louisville Energy Alliance (LEA) and the Kentucky Chapter of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) will co-host the 2016 Energy Conservation Conversation. This year’s theme is Save Energy, Drive Profits. The event takes place at the Kentucky Science Center from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. with a U.S. Green Building Council networking event to follow until 7 p.m.
“Energy saving products and technologies should appeal to businesses because not only is it good for the environment but it also saves those businesses money,” Mayor Greg Fischer said. “As business leaders and entrepreneurs understand, every dollar is important and the data shows that saving energy saves money.”
The Conservation Conversation takes place at the Kentucky Science Center from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. with a U.S. Green Building Council networking event to follow until 7 p.m. The event will feature a vendor expo and educational sessions on EPAD, energy driven profits and building automation. All sessions will focus on increasing profits through innovative energy saving methods.
“We are looking for community participation and use of these methods and techniques,” Office of Sustainability Director and Louisville Energy Alliance Vice Chair Maria Koetter said. “Businesses and energy advocates can work together to achieve an end result that will be beneficial to both groups.”
CEOs, CFOs, operations managers and building owners are encouraged to attend. Registration cost is $11.50 in advance and $17 at the door. Lunch will be provided as well as one drink ticket if attendees wish to stay for the networking event.
