Strategic Energy Management (SEM) offers an exciting pathway to realize significant energy savings in the commercial and industrial sectors throughout the Northeast region. The Northeast SEM Collaborative Workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about new strategies to drive adoption of SEM as part of energy efficiency programs. Key stakeholders will include energy efficiency program administrators, implementation experts, and federal program representatives.
This workshop will be followed by a reception - co-hosted with VEIC - at the Courtyard Burlington Harbor Hotel. Please note that the following day (November 7) NEEP will host an M&V2.0 Workshop at the same location. You may purchase tickets to both days below.
Please note that this workshop is being held on Election Day. If you are traveling to this workshop (or the one on November 7), be sure to make alternative arrangements for voting and consult your state's absentee ballot procedures.
