Take it from an Expert: 2018 Energy Exchange and Better Buildings Summit

One of the most popular features of the Better Buildings Summit is coming to Cleveland, Ohio August 21-23, and our friends at Energy Exchange are getting in on the action! We're bringing our team of technical experts from the national laboratories and DOE to the Ask-an-Expert Lounge, where they will be available to answer YOUR questions about technologies, data, process, and tools that impact energy performance. We'll have additional experts this year from the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP). Stop by and learn more about DOE and the national labs, and discuss emerging technologies, strategies, and ideas to approach projects within your own organization. If you can, catch a product demonstration by FEMP staff!

The Ask-an-Expert Lounge will be located right outside the Energy Exchange trade show floor, with hours every morning and afternoon Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of the event. The current schedule is below; for the most updated schedule throughout the conference, click here. And of course, don't forget to register today if you haven't already! See you in Cleveland.
