Deep Energy Savings Summits

During this past year, NBI hosted "Advancing Deep Energy Retrofits for Commercial Buildings", a summit and working meeting. In attendance were 50 energy efficiency and commercial building professionals. This gathering, held in New Orleans, October 29-31, 2012, explored solutions that would spark action and create scale for deep energy efficiency improvements in commercial buildings and examined next-practice opportunities to realize the significant energy savings potential of integrated efficiency upgrades to existing buildings.

This was a follow-up to the summit hosted by NBI and National Trust for Historic Preservation, "Deep Energy Savings in Existing Buildings" that was held in Boulder, Colorado on September 14-16, 2011. The event convened 80 national experts in critical aspects of energy efficiency including implementation, design, ownership, management, research, policy, and utility programs.
