Southwest Regional Energy Efficiency Workshop - 2007

November 15-16, 2007 - Albuquerque, NM

On November 15 and 16, 2007, regional and national energy efficiency professionals gathered in Albuquerque to hear the state of energy efficiency in the Southwest, and to learn about new and emerging policy opportunities and technologies that will reduce barriers to and result in greater energy efficiency adoption across the region.

SWEEP's fourth annual Southwest Regional Energy Efficiency Workshop, sponsored by Nevada Power and Public Service of New Mexico, provided a forum for utility representatives and others to hear the latest on demand-side management program development from the region's utilities, get updated on state policy efforts, and learn about emerging energy efficiency policies and technologies. Attendees included regional utility, regulatory, state, and nonprofit representatives, all of whom were provided ample opportunities for networking and informal information sharing.

Below you will find links to workshop materials and presentations.

In addition, the 2007 workshop included the presentation of SWEEP's Third Annual Leadership in Energy Efficiency Award. Given annually to policy makers and others who demonstrate a strong commitment to advancing energy efficiency in the Southwest, this year's award honored New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, who released an Executive Order committing the state to achieving a 20% energy efficiency improvement statewide by 2020; the City of Albuquerque for its High-Performance Building Ordinance, and Nevada State Assembly members Michael Schneider and David Bobzien for their legislation that establishes light bulb efficiency standards for the state of Nevada.
