5 Key Takeaways from the 2019 Bright Business Conference

CIET was proud to be a sponsor at this year’s Bright Business Conference and Awards. The conference, hosted by Efficiency Nova Scotia, is one of the largest energy efficiency events in the region.

 

This year’s event featured engaging speakers and over 250 attendees. If you weren’t able to attend, here are 5 things we think you should know.

5 Key Takeaways from the 2019 Bright Business Conference

1.  

Models of successful energy efficiency projects can come from anywhere and even from places where you might least expect it – like Samsø, a small island community off the coast of Norway (as we learned from Søren Hermansen, the conference’s keynote speaker).

2.  

The importance of behaviour change and empowering staff are starting to become more widely seen as crucial to the success of energy reduction plans.

3.  

There is still a sense in the EE industry that are large gaps between the work and labour that EE companies need and the skills that workers and employees have. The right training in the right regions will be key.

4.  

First Nations communities can be an untapped resource for the EE industry, whether they be the Mi’maq communities in Nova Scotia or the many others across Canada.

5.  

Getting toward net-zero will require a holistic approach in the way we look at and manage building assets.
