November 8-9, 2010 - Las Vegas, NV
On November 8 and 9, 2010, regional and national energy efficiency professionals gathered in Las Vegas, Nevada 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.
SSWEEP's Seventh Annual Southwest Regional Energy Efficiency Workshop provided a forum for regional utility, regulatory, state, and nonprofit representatives to hear the latest on demand-side management program development from the region's utilities, get updated on state and national policy efforts, and learn about emerging energy efficiency policies and technologies. The workshop featured a keynote address delivered by Jon Wellinghoff, Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, as well as several other presentations by prominent regional and national energy efficiency leaders. The 2010 workshop was sponsored by NV Energy.
In addition, the 2010 workshop included the presentation of SWEEP's 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:
