Southwest Regional Energy Efficiency Workshop - 2009

November 9-10, 2009 - Phoenix, AZ

On November 9 and 10, 2009, regional and national energy efficiency professionals gathered in Phoenix 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 sixth annual Southwest Regional Energy Efficiency Workshop 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. The workshop was sponsored by Arizona Public Service Company, Salt River Project, Southwest Gas Corporation, and Tucson Electric Power.

Below you will find links to workshop materials and presentations.

In addition, the 2009 workshop included the presentation of SWEEP's Fifth Annual "Leadership in Energy Efficiency" Awards, given to policy makers and others who demonstrate a strong commitment to advancing energy efficiency in the Southwest. This year's awards honored:

  • Dan Dent, for leading the region's top natural gas utility energy efficiency program portfolio as of 2008 and helping citizens and business in Utah save over one hundred million dollars; and
  • Larry Holmes, for leading the region's top electric utility energy efficiency program portfolio as of 2008 and helping citizens and businesses in Nevada save hundreds of millions of dollars
