Energy Efficiency – The First Fuel in a Green Economy

Putting your business operations on the path to sustainability can seem challenging. Business owners may be committed to doing the right thing, but uncertain on what to do as the first thing. Energy efficiency – including both changes in technology and in operational practices – can be a practical place to start. This keynote will focus on the positive Return On Investment for energy efficiency and the availability of local technical and financial resources that help businesses become more energy efficient.
