Energy Efficiency as a Resource

October 16 - 18, 2023

    The 2023 Energy Efficiency as Resource (EER) conference in Philadelphia was a big success! Attendees explored how efficiency efforts have expanded and evolved amid a transforming utility industry. After the 2021 online event, EER was back in person in October 2023 for the first time and brought together a diverse group of nearly 450 attendees—an EER record!—including the nation's leading players in the utility energy efficiency arena, including attendees from utilities and program administrators, regulatory commissions, state government, consultants, manufacturers, environmental organizations, consumer groups, and research institutions.

    EER was again the premier U.S. conference on policies and programs focused on reducing utility customers' energy waste and helping utilities meet climate goals and infrastructure challenges. Together, we strategized using innovative technologies and policies to enable efficiency programs that delivered more significant greenhouse gas reductions, improved bill affordability and health for low-income customers and embraced more electrified and grid-interactive equipment in our homes and buildings.
