CIET’s Mathieu Côte participated in this year’s AEE World Conference in Washington, D.C. The event serves as an important gathering of U.S. energy efficiency professionals, but also to a growing contingent of international delegates. The keynote speaker, Peggy Liu from JUCCCE, highlighted this trend in her presentation about energy in China. Once again this year, a sizeable group of Canadians proudly represented our country at the conference and even came back home with distinctions. CIET would thus like to congratulate and commend them all for their various achievements (see below for a full list of 2019 AEE International Award Winners).
With more than 200 presentations and speakers, AEE World is a dazzling showcase of energy efficiency best practices. Mathieu chaired a well-attended presentation session during which feats such as certification of more than thirty industrial sites on ISO 50001, Ontario’s deep lake water cooling district energy system were presented. We also learned a lot from less-technical presentations from Valerie Bennett and Prad Challa who presented respectively on (1) how an achievable potential study was developed for Ontario and how useful it can be in shaping up CDM programs, and (2) on impressive program participation generated by customer accounts strategic segmentation and approach.
Overall, participants from all over the world gathered at AEE World and it was also a great opportunity to highlight the work that CIET’s sister-company, the International Institute for Energy Training (IIET), does in providing energy efficiency training and consulting services. The next edition of AEE World will be held in Denver, CO in September 2020.
