In a discussion of how utilities could face efficiency challenges, SmartGrid News mentioned AEE Institute's convening of a meeting in Pittsburgh to bring together utilities and advanced energy leaders to discuss just that. From the article:
Last week, Advanced Energy Economy Institute (AEE Institute) and the Scott Institute for Energy Innovation at (CMU) convened a discussion with utility, advanced energy, and thought leaders to discuss the status of the industrial energy-efficiency sector in Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania at large.
AEE Institute and its affiliated state partner, the Keystone Energy Efficiency Alliance (KEEA), partnered with CMU to bring together 20 leading thinkers in the energy industry to discuss the opportunities and challenges for industrial efficiency in Southwest Pennsylvania.
"As cities, regions, and states plan for the transformation to a 21st Century electricity system, it is important for all stakeholders to discuss the opportunities and challenges of integrating advanced energy technology into the energy system, such as industrial efficiency," said Matt Stanberry, AEE Institute's vice president of Market Development. "Collaborative efforts like today's discussion allow for Pittsburgh and other cities to lead in the next era of innovation in the electricity and energy sector."
