A qualified building workforce is essential to ensure the higher levels of quality required for moving towards Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings and to accelerate the rate of building renovation in Europe. It is particularly important to train construction workers, as well as middle and senior level professionals throughout the entire building value chain, in order to address the upcoming challenges.
ACEEE is pleased to announce that Phoenix, Arizona, will be the host city for ACEEE’s 2017 National Conference on Energy Efficiency as a Resource, to be held October 30 – November 1, 2017. Arizona has rapidly emerged as a leading state for energy efficiency programs serving electric and natural gas utility customers. The conference will showcase such efforts and those of other leading states.
This event aims to share best practice from Italy, Croatia and Slovenia and further afield in Europe on how energy efficiency can be financed. This includes the use of private funds and innovative financing instruments, notably in the building and industry sectors. Speakers will focus on practical experience in developing, structuring and financing energy efficiency investment programmes. The event will allow time for debate.
