Utility energy efficiency and demand-side management (DSM) leaders from around the country will gather Sept.10–11, 2013 in Seattle for EnergySavvy’s Summit on data transparency in energy efficiency. The two-day event will include major new EnergySavvy product announcements and will feature insight from thought leaders including Rob Bernard, Chief Environmental Strategist at Microsoft, and Steve Reynolds, former President and CEO of Puget Sound Energy.
Why Energy Efficiency Data Transparency
Energy efficiency has become a critical component of utility resource planning. But the predictability and reliability of energy savings requires sophisticated software and analytics to provide the necessary data transparency and operational control. EnergySavvy’s Summit puts utility DSM goals front and center in a collaborative environment designed to share and solve real challenges from program planning to implementation and ongoing evaluation.
EnergySavvy to Launch New Products
Product and innovation sessions throughout the summit will allow utility program leaders and technology partners to share concrete best practices, lessons learned, and ideas for action. As part of this collaboration, EnergySavvy will announce and demo groundbreaking new software offerings within Optix, its flagship DSM software. EnergySavvy’s solutions bring measurability and scalability to energy efficiency through data transparency and control.
Features Former CEO of Puget Sound Energy and Microsoft Strategist
Steve Reynolds, former President and CEO of Puget Sound Energy (PSE), kicks off the Summit with a perspective of energy efficiency and demand-side management from the corner office. Serving PSE from 2002 until his retirement in 2011, Reynolds led a transition toward meeting the energy needs of its Pacific Northwest customer base through incremental, cost-effective energy efficiency, low-cost procurement of sustainable energy resources, and early development and investment in the energy-delivery infrastructure.
Rob Bernard, Chief Environmental Strategist at Microsoft Corporation provides a look at the road ahead for energy efficiency in the commercial and industrial sector. Bernard will share lessons on big data and energy efficiency from the world’s largest software company. Under Bernard’s leadership, Microsoft has set its first carbon reduction goal and rolled out a global campaign to engage with customers, partners and governments on ways to use information technology to reduce environmental impacts.
Seattle: Hub of Clean Technology
With a rich history of industry, innovation and sustainability, the Pacific Northwest is an ideal setting for clean technology. EnergySavvy is a Seattle-based software company that counts twenty utility and government energy efficiency programs as clients, in the Northwest and around the country. Its solutions are bringing measurability and scalability to energy efficiency through data transparency and control.
Utility DSM and energy efficiency program executives looking to collaborate and innovate can register at the EnergySavvy Summit website now through September 6th.
