Intelligent Efficiency Conference Overview

Intelligent efficiency holds the promise of substantially reducing energy use while transforming many energy-using markets. Achieving this outcome requires collaboration among the efficiency, technology, and user communities. These communities are largely distinct, and few opportunities have existed to date for the energy efficiency and technology communities to interact. Past interactions have been limited to speakers from one community addressing assemblies of the other.

ACEEE’s third Intelligent Efficiency Conference will convene these diverse communities to facilitate the sharing of ideas and forming of partnerships that will advance the adoption of intelligent efficiency in the marketplace. The Intelligent Efficiency Conference will provide an opportunity to hear from thought leaders and innovators, to learn what is happening in this rapidly evolving world, and to serve as a crucible for the formation of new policies, program strategies and commercial ventures.

Likely Participants Include: Energy efficiency program developers and administrators, state and local government policymakers, staff, and associations, chief technology officers and chief information officers, service providers, investors, entrepreneurs, hardware and software developers, ICT solution providers, building automation providers, and smart manufacturing, smart transportation, smart buildings, and smart cities leaders.

For more information on sponsoring this event, please contact Ethan Rogers at industry@aceee.org.


Plenaries and breakout sessions will cover how intelligent efficiency is changing:

  • Energy efficiency program design and execution

  • Utility regulation and state and local policies

  • Grid integration of distributed energy resources

  • Local government services to community residents

  • Evaluation, measurement, and verification (EM&V)

  • Data analytics to identify opportunities and track savings

Speaking roles at the conference are by invitation only. If you would like to share topic ideas, speaker suggestions, or learn about sponsorship opportunities, please email the Intelligent Efficiency program team.
