Large energy consumers, from manufacturers to municipalities, are tasked with meeting aggressive carbon reduction targets but find this challenging with dated energy and facility infrastructure. How are these institutions pairing the use of advanced technologies and high efficiency systems with innovative financing mechanisms to achieve their goals? How did they invest in upgrades when there wasn't a generous budget line item in place? In this session, hear directly from large energy consumers on how they have implemented energy efficiency programs. What were the critical first steps? How did they get the required executive support? What was the timeline for the projects and how did they secure funding? What were the lessons learned and notable best practices? What were the results of these energy efficiency projects, and how have they impacted their planning for tomorrow?
