Why you should attend!

Please bring your thoughts about the new energy trends, disruptions, training, and news to the SEI Working Group 2022 Planning Meeting (such as RGGI and Energy Efficiency, Battery Storage, Utility Scale Community Solar technology and finance, Hydrogen CHP, Geothermal as a community utility, Electric Vehicles, AI and Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)).

By participating in the working group meeting, you get to help choose the topics that will be covered in our annual energy briefing (as well as future programs). Please bring a unique perspective to the table, and consider being a speaker for one of our future programs. Let’s learn from one another and provide content as we plan the 2023 Energy Briefing.

The Working Group topics will become the themes for the 2023 SEI Energy Briefing in February and subsequent activities throughout the year. We need to hear from you, SEI Members. Our goal is to inform, educate, and communicate the smart energy issues that affect businesses in our region.
