NEEP to Host EM&V Meeting, Heating and Cooling Workshop, and 2018 Summit

The Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP) will be hosting a number of events over the coming months. The first, in May, will be an EM&V Meeting. The second, in June, will be a Heating and Cooling Workshop. And the third, in October, will be the 2018 NEEP Summit.

NEEP EM&V Annual Public Meeting May 8, 2018
Join the NEEP EM&V Forum for our Annual Public Meeting to discuss the latest and most popular issues in EM&V.  How can EM&V be most helpful to an industry navigating change in technology, business models, the integration of multiple resources, and environmental policies? This meeting will be working through the most critical evaluation considerations for new program models (such as pay for performance), new measures (such as evaluating controls for lighting and HVAC), and new data sources that inform the future of EM&V.

The agenda will feature deep dive conversations on a variety of topics, including TRMs and their role in the future, cost-effectiveness and non-energy value of efficiency resources, and how stakeholders - from researchers and utilities to policymakers - can embrace innovation in the EM&V space while also leveraging what already works. This one-day workshop will tackle the important issues facing EM&V today and into the future.

NEEP also invites you to kick off this Annual Public Meeting with a reception co-hosted by AESP Northeast Chapter on Monday, May 7 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Radisson Hotel. Come network with your peers during this informal gathering. If you are only able to join the reception, select the ticket "Reception Only" on EventBrite (free for AESP members).

NEEP-RTA Renewable Heating and Cooling Workshop June 18-19, 2018
Renewable heating and cooling technologies - including air source and ground source heat pumps, solar thermal, and biomass heating - are increasingly seen as important solutions to a low-carbon future in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region. The Renewable Thermal Alliance (RTA) and Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership (NEEP) are inviting you to a workshop to explore how the region can work collaboratively to accelerate the adoption of renewable heating and cooling technologies that will ultimately transform the way we heat and cool our homes and businesses.

The two-day workshop will offer a plenary session covering topics relevant across clean heating and cooling technologies (day one), while day two will include several technology and project-specific breakout sessions.

2018 NEEP Summit October 2-3, 2018
The NEEP Summit returns after a year hiatus, highlighting leading examples of advanced efficiency as a key pathway to building a low-carbon future. The NEEP Summit attracts more than 250 energy efficiency stakeholders, including high-profile policy leaders like public utility commissioners, environmental regulators, state legislators, state officials, and community leaders as well as energy efficiency service and product providers, program administrators, and advocates who are instrumental in keeping the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region a nationally-recognized energy efficiency leader.

The 2018 NEEP Summit will take place at the brand new, upscale, and energy efficient Cambria Hotel & Suites in Middletown, Rhode Island. Just a stone’s throw from the classic coastal town of Newport, this new resort will be home to NEEP’s two-day Summit featuring an exciting agenda highlighting leaders and leading examples of advanced energy efficiency solutions and approaches. Join the dialogue. Connect with peers. Learn from leaders. Be inspired.

The Summit will feature collaborative dialogues and discussions, inspiring keynotes, deep-dive breakout sessions, and other opportunities to connect and partner with regional leaders to accelerate advanced energy efficiency solutions. Topics to be explored include: advanced integrated efficiency solutions, advanced EM&V, efficient resilient communities and strategic electrification.
