The 19th Annual Energy Efficiency Forum, sponsored by the United States Energy Association and Johnson Controls, Inc., which is scheduled for June 10-11, 2008, in Washington, DC. The program theme, "What’s Happening Now and What’s Next," should provoke an interesting discussion on how the public and private sectors can initiative large-scale energy-efficiency programs that will have immediate economic and environmental impact.
The activities begin on Tuesday, June 10, at 11:30 a.m. with a luncheon and World Caf session at the Marriott Hotel. This event will kick-off with a keynote from Charlie Cook, a nationally known, non-partisan political commentator and publisher of The Cook Political Report.
The World Caf Session that follows features an innovative, collaborative approach to help you explore challenges, define solutions and move your organization along the path to sustainability. To better match the interests and experiences of participants, the session will be divided into two tracks: operational/technical and executive/non-technical.
Following this special event will be a Congressional Reception scheduled for 5:00 p.m. at the Rayburn House Office Building. The Energy Efficiency Forum begins at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday at the National Press Club.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Thomas Friedman, New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize winning author
- Robert Watson, founder of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Green Building Rating System
- David B. Goldstein, co-director of the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Energy Program
