About the webinar:
The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) conducts, every two years, the ACEEE National Conference on Energy Efficiency as a Resource (EER Conference). This is widely regarded as the premier conference in the U.S. on the subject of energy efficiency as a utility system resource. This presentation will describe the history and purpose of this conference, and provide a summary of highlights from the most recent event (held in September 2015), which featured presentations by over 75 experts in the utility energy efficiency program field. It will also provide information on how to access the presentations from this event as well as prior EER conferences.
