Buildings Summer Study Overview

The 2018 ACEEE Summer Study is the 20th biennial ACEEE conference on Energy Efficiency in Buildings. This preeminent meeting will attract a diverse group of professionals to discuss cutting-edge technologies, strategies, and programs for reducing energy use and addressing climate impacts. We want to scale innovation that works with our 2018 theme: “Making Efficiency Easy and Enticing.”

Consider how technologies alone can boost energy efficiency. Advances in material sciences are increasing the efficiency of buildings systems and components. Information technology is giving stakeholders vastly more data and insight for making decisions. New sensors and controls are creating dynamic, grid-integrated buildings. Hundreds of buildings are now operating at or near net-zero energy.

The building industry needs to significantly increase the pace of adoption across all market sectors and regions. To overcome stubborn behavioral, economic, and market barriers, it will need innovation in technology development, program design and implementation, codes and standards, financing, workforce development, and community development. Come to the 2018 Summer Study with your ideas, experiences, and vision to make energy efficiency easy and enticing.

Likely Participants Include: Policymakers; utility staff; architects; builders; financial and insurance professionals involved with buildings; clean-tech investors; building products, equipment, and appliance manufacturers; building owners and operators; engineers; local, state, and federal agency personnel; energy researchers; NGOs; consultants; behavioral scientists; and energy efficiency professionals.
