Energy Efficiency In a Different Light
Energy efficiency can play an important role in increasing national security and fueling local economic recovery. At the 23rd Annual Energy Efficiency Forum, we will examine how advanced efficiency technologies, smart energy policies and consumer education can be integrated today to enhance energy security, improve global competitiveness and accelerate economic growth.
To be the premier forum that promotes an energy efficiency ethic through the presentation of national and worldwide views on energy efficiency and the resulting impact on the environment, national security and economic growth.
In 1990, Johnson Controls convened a national forum of participants from the public and private sectors as part of a broader campaign to raise energy conservation awareness in Washington, D.C. and to encourage the development of a nationwide energy conservation ethic. In 1992, the United States Energy Association (USEA) joined Johnson Controls as a co-sponsor of the Forum. Over the course of two decades, the discussions and debates at the annual event have involved questions about the role of government in the marketplace, public/private partnerships, promoting research and development of energy efficient technologies, market opportunities for U.S. businesses, the global context and the critical impact of energy use on the natural environment. Changes in the political landscape have influenced the character and tone of the Forum from year to year, occasionally in dramatic ways. The high-level, invitation-only gathering has been successful in advancing energy efficiency issues with the help of many eminent speakers, including President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Sen. Hillary Clinton, every U.S. Secretary of Energy since 1990 and other notables including journalists, members of Congress and international business and industry leaders.
