Southwest Regional Energy Efficiency Workshop - 2013

November 21-22, 2013 - Boulder, CO

On November 21 and 22, 2013, regional and national energy efficiency professionals gathered in Boulder, Colorado to discuss the state of utility energy efficiency programs in the Southwest at SWEEP's 10th Annual Southwest Regional Energy Efficiency Workshop. Participants learned about new and emerging program opportunities that can help utilities achieve even greater energy savings in the future.

The workshop provides an annual forum for regional utility, regulatory, state, and nonprofit representatives to hear about the status of utility demand-side management programs in the Southwest, get updated on energy efficiency potential, and learn about innovative energy efficiency programs and technologies. The 2013 workshop featured presentations by 15 electric and gas utilities that operate in the Southwest. In addition, national experts discussed special topics such as upstream incentive programs, uniform measurement and verification methods, and data analytics. The workshop was sponsored by Xcel Energy.

The 2013 workshop included the presentation of SWEEP's Annual "Leadership in Energy Efficiency" Awards, given to individuals and organizations who demonstrate a strong commitment to advancing energy efficiency in the Southwest. Xcel Energy and the City of Fort Collins Utilities received leadership awards for highly effective energy efficiency programs that are exceeding energy savings goals. Patti Lynn Case, a principal in the firm ETC Group based in Salt Lake City, was honored for her contributions to greater energy efficiency in the industrial sector.
