The Kentucky Energy Services Coalition (KESC) and the Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC) are hosting an Energy Awareness Conference today, September 20, at the Clarion Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky.  Speakers will include Dr. James Ramsey, President of the University of Louisville, Danny Orlando of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Talina Mathews, Executive Director of the Kentucky Office of Energy Policy.  Continuing education credits will be available to attendees and registration costs $25 for public sector employees or $50 for private sector employees.

 

Improving the energy efficiency of our homes, businesses, schools, governments, and industries – which consume more than 70 percent of the energy used in the country—is one of the most constructive, cost-effective ways to secure affordable, reliable, secure, and clean energy to meet our nation’s growing energy demand.  This conference will highlight energy efficiency opportunities available today to Kentuckians that will improve the performance of our buildings while reducing energy expenditures.

 

The Energy Services Coalition (ESC) is a national nonprofit organization composed of a network of experts from a wide range of organizations working together at the state and local level to increase energy efficiency and building upgrades through energy savings performance contracting.

 

Energy savings performance contracting enables building owners to use future energy savings to pay for up-front costs of energy-saving projects, eliminating the need to dip into capital budgets.
