ENERGY EFFICIENCY 101
This session will introduce you to the basics of energy efficiency. Three experienced energy experts will take you on a virtual walk through several facilities, one of which is likely to resemble yours. The tour will review each piece of equipment that utilizes energy and let you know how to reduce your peak demand and your consumption. Also, it will highlight where to start an equipment replacement program and how to use this year’s savings to apply to next year’s project.

Can’t do it this year? We can help you decide on the best equipment when the inevitable happens and you must replace one or more components. Our programs also let you know what to look for when you are buying new equipment. Our online tables show energy efficiency ratings so you will be able to make an informed decision. How about your home? We will also have information for you on how to lower your energy consumption in residential environments. ADD: How about your home? We will also have information for you to lower your energy consumption in residential environments.

This session is for business and home owners who are looking for energy savings and want to learn how to get started, what to consider in their action plan and what outcomes to expect.



ENERGY EFFICIENCY BENEFITS OF COMBINED HEAT AND POWER/COGENERATION
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) or Cogeneration is the simultaneous generation of electricity and useful thermal energy in a single, integrated system. CHP’s ability to recover otherwise wasted thermal energy and putting it to use for heating, cooling, process thermal energy, or electricity can make it a very cost-effective and energy efficient solution for your facility. 

Cogeneration technology with nearly 4,000 installations nationwide is already supplying close to 10% of our nation’s electricity and has been successfully implemented across diverse industry segments including colleges, manufacturing plants, hospitals, municipal facilities, office buildings, multi-family complexes and retail stores. This workshop will encompass the technical and economic aspects of these systems and their impacts from the customer and utility perspective. The session will also include a brief talk about PSEG Long Island’s recently introduced CHP rebates and program participation process.

This session is for facility owners, operators, consultants, engineering, procurement & construction companies, government policy and regulatory staff, and project developers involved with (or interested in) Cogeneration and CHP systems.



DEVELOPING AN ENERGY MASTER PLAN
When thinking about a facility’s energy usage and goals, it is helpful to develop an Energy Master Plan. Energy Master Plans can be useful tools to help facility operators to identify energy hogs, prioritize projects, obtain financial approvals and financing, estimate return on investments and reinvest energy savings and rebates in additional projects. Whether it’s a simple spreadsheet used to track projects or a comprehensive multi-year business plan that clearly defines step-by-step initiatives to be implemented over the course of several years, an Energy Master Plan will help demonstrate the benefits of and prioritize energy efficiency initiatives.

This session is intended for facility owners and operators.



ENERGY EFFICIENCY ECONOMICS, TAX INCENTIVES, FINANCING AND MORE

All in one room and all in one hour, learn the specific energy tax incentive and rebate programs that can support your energy efficiency plan for your business or building. Accounting and tax specialists will show you how to maximize your savings and tax position through energy efficiency projects. The session will also explore new insurances available to owners, developers and business owners to protect cash flow and projected savings. This insurance is applicable to a single installation or a building-wide program.

This session is designed for all attendees who want to better understand options for financing energy efficiency installations, how to apply incentives, how to maximize savings and which insurance products may be available to protect performance and cash flow projections.



GEOTHERMAL HEATING AND COOLING FOR BUSINESSES, CAMPUSES AND HOMES

Utilizing the natural heat storage capacity of the earth, geothermal heat pumps (GHPs) offer an alternative to traditional heating and cooling sources to help keep up with a more environmentally conscious market. There are numerous benefits to GHPs, including reduced greenhouse gas emissions, lower heating and cooling costs, increased system efficiencies, and lower life cycle costs. This session is designed to help you better understand GHPs and shed light on the economic and environmental benefits of these systems for your home or business.

This session is intended for anyone who wants to develop an understanding of how geothermal technology can fit into their business plan.

   
10:00 AM – 10:30 AM COFFEE BREAK & EXHIBITION
   
10:30 AM – 11:30 AM MORNING WORKSHOPS II:
 
ENERGY PERFORMANCE CONTRACTING: CREATING HIGHER PERFORMING BUILDINGS
The session focuses on Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) and how this approach can help you design and optimize the performance of your building. EPC is an excellent potential funding source for energy related building upgrades. The session will overview how EPC projects can generate substantial utility rebates for your organization. The discussion will also review best practices as well as cautions to consider in EPC projects.

If you operate public use buildings such as libraries, firehouses, town buildings, schools, colleges, universities or hospitals, then plan on attending this session as it will help you identify the best energy efficiency technologies and the right approach for implementation, integration and evaluation of short and long term performance technologies and measures.



ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FOR COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS

New measurement and operations technology are transforming the ability to monitor, control, manage, report and analyze your facility’s energy consumption.  This session will examine Energy Management Systems (EMS) and Building Automation Systems (BAS) and explore new software, services and hardware designed to enhance your energy management protocols and processes in your building.  The session will also consider the Internet of Things (IoT) and its relationship to energy efficiency programs. A key takeaway -  how a properly designed EMS can be a long term energy efficiency solution for your facility.

This session is designed for commercial facility managers and those large business owners who want to optimize their building operations and increase worker productivity through Energy Management Systems.



REV AND THE FUTURE OF ENERGY IN NEW YORK STATE
Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) is a statewide initiative to build a clean, resilient and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers. REV is transforming New York State’s energy policy to ensure energy efficiency and clean, locally-produced power is at the core of the State’s energy system. REV’s goals are focused on three metrics that the State wants to achieve by 2030: 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, 50% generation of electricity from renewable energy sources and 23% decrease in energy consumption in buildings from 2012 levels.

This session is for residential, commercial, portfolio operators and managers who want to learn more about REV and its implications for their building operations today and into the future.



CAREERS IN GREEN ENERGY
Green Careers are revolutionizing the construction industry. Learn more about certifications, curricula and the right degrees to fuel or enhance your career in the energy efficiency marketplace.  The session will review the right credentials for different occupations and jobs in the energy sector.

This session is designed for students and those interested in building and growing careers in the sustainability market. It is also an excellent session for contractors who want to build a new, trained talent pool for their company.



LEED V4: IMPLICATION FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY
This session will bring you up-to-date on the revolutionary changes in LEED requirements. The change is groundbreaking and will ripple through the energy efficiency market as well require new products and approaches to increase transparency and performance requirements.
