Showcasing Regional Opportunities in Energy Efficiency Technologies

“Making Energy Work as Hard as You Do”

Event details are our web address:


Energy is typically the second largest operating expense for a business (after labor costs), yet it is generally undervalued as an opportunity to increase profits thru managing it properly. Energy Efficiency has a larger impact on your bottom line than any of the popular “New Energy” generation technologies.

Recent data (2015) shows as much as a 30 % reduction in energy based operating costs are possible and currently 1.8 million US jobs exist in this field., Jobs growth is projected at 10 %, and World Markets are $ 595 Billion (USD).

Network and learn with your peers: We have expanded our break times and have added an after hour reception to allow ample time to meet with our exhibitors, and to do networking with attendees with similar problems and often solutions to things you may have not thought of. Make those critical connections that may impact your future success.


Luncheon Speaker: Mr. Harry Moser


We are very pleased to announce that Mr. Harry Moser, Founder of the Reshoring Initiative, has agreed to be our luncheon speaker. Mr. Moser will speak about the economics of Reshoring, of which energy reliability and costs are key elements of the TOC equation. His very thoughtful and well documented presentation should be especially interesting and relevant as Manufacturing is the core activity of our local economy.
