UPDATES AS OF NOVEMBER 22, 2016
The Industrial Energy Efficiency (IEE) Working Group has been very active recently, meeting monthly during this period.
New representatives from Xcel Energy and WMEP joined the group. Significant progress was made on group action items, including:
- Planning an Industrial Energy Efficiency Conference targeting small to medium sized business owners. The conference, “Building the Business Case for Energy and Resource Efficiency”, will be held in mid 2017.
- Planning an Industrial Energy Efficiency Sales Training Seminar targeting both potential customers and vendors. The training program, called “Selling Energy Efficiency” has been developed by Franklin Energy in conjunction with the IEE-WG and M-WERC and will be offered in 2017.
- Developing a collaborative business model partnership between select members of the IEE WG. The partnership between Franklin Energy, WE Energies, and WMEP is currently in the final stage of development and running a pilot test.
- The IEE WG will be expanding during 2017, particularly by adding additional Utility and IEE Contractor members.
