2010 Energy Efficiency Global Forum gets Underway
THE 2010 Energy Efficiency Global Forum and Exposition (EE Global 2010) kicked off on Monday in Washington D.C.
The gathering of world-class business, technology, government and policy leaders are convening for the only such international event focused exclusively on energy efficiency. The participants will be calling for improved energy efficiency and combat climate change, with over 120 energy professionals and policy makers from nearly 20 countries addressing the three-day conference.
The event is hosted by the Alliance to Save Energy and their President Kateri Callahan said:
"At EE Global 2010, participants will discover the ideas, intersections and insights for growing energy-efficient economies. EE Global brings together the most knowledgeable energy and environmental professionals working worldwide in all energy end-use sectors; elected officials and high-level government appointees; and noteworthy representatives of academia, foundations, industry associations, utilities, NGOs and labor.
“They will engage in extensive discussions on critical energy issues and forge partnerships and international alliances to jumpstart low-carbon economies. They also will contribute to the catalogue of best practices in energy efficiency."
Peter Fannon, Vice President of one of the participant companies, Panasonic Corporation of North America, added:
"Consumers generally are becoming much more aware day and day out the importance of energy efficiency and energy conservation. As they watch the cost of energy rise around them, that sensibility creates real opportunities for new energy systems...both managing current energy better through conservation and careful installation of energy saving features or new devices which are more energy efficient as well as automatically shifting to new energy sources directly, such as solar panels, possibly fuel cells or even other sources."
The Alliance to Save Energy were founded in 1977 by a coalition of prominent business, government, environmental and consumer leaders in the U. S. who promote the efficient and clean use of energy worldwide for the benefit of consumers, the environment, the economy and national security.
