Following 2024’s annual conference for the Association of Energy Services Professionals, Senior Vice President Cindy Gage, shares thoughts on the implications for communications professionals relative to the clean energy transition.
In pre-COVID times, September was the month that ENERGY STAR Partners would gather together with EPA to discuss new technologies, initiatives, insights and campaigns aimed at creating a more sustainable energy future. And while virtual meetings have been held in recent years, it wasn’t quite the same. The energy efficiency community was hankering for the chance to get together again, and it finally happened last week.
It seems everywhere I turn these days, I encounter news, conferences, discussions and opinions on the transition to clean energy and decarbonization of our energy supply. Across the country, energy offices are consumed with developing the infrastructure to distribute billions of dollars in federal incentives and tax credits to facilitate the transition to clean energy. Utility and energy efficiency programs are strategizing about how to leverage their program frameworks to help achieve aggressive goals for electrification.
