'Oh Wow' Tech and Trends from Energy Efficiency Insiders at Washington, D.C. Gathering

Posted on May 27, 2014 at 6:39pm 0 Comments

Brainy light bulbs. Refrigerators that heat dishwasher water. Elevators that use no more energy than toasters. These are just a few of the “Oh Wow’ topics last week at the annual EE Global conference.

Posted on May 10, 2014 at 4:19am 3 Comments

Momentum builds for energy efficiency...but is the wolf at the door?

Posted on May 30, 2013 at 12:04pm 25 Comments

It says something that Ernest Moniz chose to deliver his first public talk as US energy secretary to an energy efficiency crowd.

His appearance last week at EE Global in Washington, D.C. was a surprise of sorts. And the timing was significant. Moniz had only been confirmed as energy secretary three hours before taking the podium at the Alliance to Save Energy’s annual conference.

Why did he make the stop?

Probably not because of the size of the crowd. About 550 people…
