Thought leaders from around the world gather at EE Global to discuss energy efficiency action and policy.
Huntersville, NC – May 13th, 2015 – Lime Energy Co. (NASDAQ: LIME), announced today that it was proud to sponsor the 2015 Energy Efficiency Global Forum, held in Washington, D.C. on May 12th-13th. During the event, the company also spearheaded an executive dialogue session on how to improve the overall message of energy efficiency to the mass-market. This discussion highlighted Lime Energy’s successful engagement strategy targeting small and mid-sized commercial businesses across the US, resulting in over 100,000 energy efficiency projects and reducing 1,000 gigawatt-hours of energy usage – enough to power 100,000 homes.
The Alliance to Save Energy‘s Energy Efficiency Global Forum (EE Global), the world’s premiere, invitation-only forum dedicated to energy efficiency, drew to a close following an inspiring two day event. High-level organizational representatives from every continent joined Lime Energy at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. to discuss the policy and actions that will shape the future of energy productivity. Nearly 500 energy leaders participated in discussion-based sessions covering issues across multiple sectors.
President of the Alliance to Save Energy, Kateri Callahan, said “Each year EE Global brings together critical stakeholders to engage with one another on important energy efficiency issues. Conversations during this two-day event will undoubtedly inspire transformative action and policy for years to come; all of which would not have been possible without the support of our sponsor organizations.”
“Lime Energy was thrilled to participate in the EE Global Forum again this year,” said Adam Procell, President & CEO of Lime Energy. “The Alliance to Save Energy brought together a wide cross section of industry thought leaders, providing a great opportunity for Lime Energy to share the lessons learned from our innovative, industry-leading small business energy efficiency programs. These forums are an integral part of our commitment to bring energy services to small and mid-sized businesses on behalf of our utility clients across the country”
Thought leaders at the Plenary Sessions discussed the changing utility model and the achievability of the goal to double U.S. energy productivity by the year 2030. Four Executive Dialogue Sessions took place throughout the day, engaging participants in conversations on a variety of topics. Panelists discussed government leadership, investment and financing issues, market transformation, the built environment and more. Finally, EE Visionary Awards were presented to global product manufacturers that have set substantial energy efficiency goals.
The two-day event came to a close with a reception at the Embassy of Canada, where attendees learned about efficiency upgrades in the building. Following the inspiring conversations at EE Global, Lime Energy is eager to engage further with thought leaders from around the world to help promote the advancement of energy efficiency policies and practices.
