ACEEE is excited to be bringing the eleventh National Conference on Energy Efficiency as a Resource (EER) to Philadelphia in October 2021. This marks the first time that EER will be taking place in the Northeast—a region with a long record of leadership for policies and programs to advance energy efficiency. EER is the premier US convening conference on efficiency as a utility system resource.
Held every other year since 2001, the conference highlights the latest developments in the design and delivery of customer energy efficiency programs, and in the regulatory mechanisms that help make them possible.
Utilities and system planners now face increasing expectations from policymakers, regulators and customers. There are challenges to integrate technological advancements, modernize the grid, and meet increasing energy and environmental goals… all while constraining costs. These challenges bring opportunities to better integrate energy efficiency to meet those needs. EER21 will feature robust discussions and presentations of the many issues facing utilities as they acquire and integrate this resource into their planning and operation.
