Want to learn what our industry’s energy efficiency policy work is all about? Join us on August 15th in Raleigh from 10am – Noon for the Q3 public meeting of the North Carolina Energy Policy Council (EPC). Resulting from NCBPA’s recent advocacy work and lobby days, our proposal to the NC Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to feature energy efficiency at the Q3 meeting was accepted just last week. Energy efficiency will be the focal point for the meeting, which will include four presentations from (exclusively) NCBPA staff, members and partners.
The EPC “advises the governor and General Assembly on legislation and rulemaking that addresses domestic energy exploration, protects the environment and encourages economic development.” The EPC recently released their 2018 biannual report that includes 26 energy efficiency recommendations, far more than any other category and nearly all matching NCBPA’s Energy Efficiency Policy Roadmap released in the fall of 2017.
Attend this free public meeting to get a crash course in NC’s most important energy efficiency policy matters, learn how they will benefit your company and show support for your association staff and fellow member companies! Presentations include:
- Ryan Miller of NCBPA: “Quantifying North Carolina’s Benefits from Increased Investment in Energy Efficiency”
- Jen Weiss of Duke Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and NCBPA Partner: “Prioritizing Energy Efficiency in North Carolina’s Next State Energy Plan”
- Joe Cullen of Home Performance Coalition and NCBPA Partner: “Modernizing the State’s Regulated Utility Energy Efficiency Cost Effectiveness Testing Protocols”
- Michael Stowe of Advanced Energy and Dr. Steve Terry of NCSU, NCBPA Members: “Opportunities for Industrial Energy Efficiency in North Carolina”
