3rd Annual Summit Breakout Session
Introduced by David Low, Architecture 2030
Organizations and individuals in the SPEER region are demonstrating leadership in the energy sector by committing to reduce energy consumption through participation in a variety of volunteer programs. Participation in voluntary energy efficiency initiatives provides public recognition, brings prestige, and provides real value in terms of energy and cost savings. These programs give participant’s in the Architecture 2030 Districts, Better Building Challenge initiatives, and other local voluntary challenges the opportunity to compare notes and learn from each other’s experiences. Local districts demonstrate the value these initiatives are bringing to their communities, join or initiate similar efforts, and what resources are needed to make these programs successful.
