Southwest Regional Energy Efficiency Workshop - 2006

November 16-17, 2006 - Salt Lake City, UT

On November 16 and 17, 2006, regional and national energy efficiency professionals gathered at the Snowbird Resort near Salt Lake City 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 third annual Southwest Regional Energy Efficiency Workshop, sponsored by Questar Gas Company and Rocky Mountain Power, 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.

In addition, the 2006 workshop included the presentation of SWEEP's Second 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 Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, Jr., who earlier this year announced an ambitious plan to increase energy efficiency in Utah, save consumers and businesses money, and achieve a goal of 20% energy efficiency improvement statewide by 2015.
