Welcome to the 2019 Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Industry


The theme for this historic Summer Study on industrial energy efficiency was “Inspiring Action for a Sustainable Future.”  We chose our theme to wrap around the cycle of empowering people, establishing policy, enhancing processes, enabling action all towards inspiring a sustainable industrial future.  While the cycle continues, it begins and ends with people, like you, who are committed to industrial efficiency.  And what better place to conduct the study than Portland, Oregon a community that is knit together around a sustainable energy future!

As co-chairs we were committed to making the gathering live up to the ideals of being truly inspirational, delivering actionable outcomes, all within the underlying goal of contributing to a sustainable future. In preparation for Portland we assembled an incredible team of panel leaders from both the USA and Canada, all well respected in the area of industrial energy efficiency.

Industrial Summer Study Overview

We believe industrial efficiency plays an integral role in building a sustainable future. The key: empowered people. By laying a solid foundation with smart policies and addressing challenges with new processes and designs, we can enable and inspire them to take action that will accelerate our journey.

  • People - Empowering people to envision the future
