Energy Efficiency Program Design and Implementation in the Southwest - 2005

November 3-4, 2005 - Phoenix, AZ

On November 3 and 4, 2005, regional and national energy efficiency professionals gathered in Phoenix to discuss the options and opportunities for program collaboration across the Southwest. SWEEP's second annual Energy Efficiency Program Design and Implementation in the Southwest workshop, sponsored by Salt River Project and held at SRP's PERA Club, worked from the premise that, with regional utility demand-side management program spending increasing from $21 million in 2001 to a projected $113 million in 2006, the time is ripe for utility representatives and others to share information and look for areas where collaboration will enhance the effectiveness of individual utility and/or state energy efficiency programs.

Below you will find links to workshop materials as well as the presentations made at the workshop.

In addition, the 2005 workshop included the presentation of SWEEP's First Annual Leadership in Energy Efficiency Awards, at an awards luncheon hosted by Salt River Project. Arizona State Representative Lucy Mason and Nevada State Senator Randolph Townsend were honored for their successful efforts in sponsoring and seeing signed into law important energy efficiency legislation in their respective states.
