Dear EEA Members and Supporters,
EEA staff and board have decided to postpone our upcoming policy conference. Forging the Future for Energy Efficiency, which was scheduled to take place September 22-23rd, will now take place in spring 2022. We did not make the decision to postpone lightly, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Our goal is to hold a high-value, well-attended, and safe event featuring quality speakers and plenty of networking opportunities. Rising COVID cases made it clear that we can't hold that event this September. Rather than moving the conference online, we've decided to plan a robust in-person event next year.
While we are disappointed to be missing you in September, we are absolutely looking forward to an exciting and substantial in-person conference in 2022! We hope you'll join us next spring for two days of networking and content, featuring many of the same speakers slated to join us in 2021.
If you purchased a 2021 ticket, instructions for opting to apply your ticket towards 2022 are already in your inbox. You can find that email by looking for a subject line that reads "Please Read: 'Forging the Future' Conference Postponed". If you purchased a 2021 ticket but didn't receive an email, please contact Communications and Events Manager Katie Thompson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We'll be sharing new conference dates and registration options with our newsletter subscribers closer to spring.
Thank you for your understanding and support during these uncertain times. We are all looking forward to seeing you at a safe, educational, and fun policy conference in 2022.
What does the future of energy efficiency look like? A difficult year has given us new appreciation for “business-as-usual” conditions. But as the industry recovers, we’re facing a unique opportunity to look beyond the old “normal” and shape the future. KEEA and EEA-NJ's first in-person event of 2021, Forging the Future for Energy Efficiency, presents two days of forward-looking programming examining the policies, technologies, and companies pushing our industry into a new period of growth and innovation.
"The Coolest Shipyard in America" according to Politico, the Philadelphia Navy Yard is a unique 1,200 acre reimagining of one of America's most historically important ports. This cutting-edge space features many public green spaces, over 170 employers, and a nationally recognized microgrid. Conference attendees can take advantage of a walking tour highlighting the Navy Yard's many unique features. To reserve a walking tour space, please email email@example.com (tour capacity is limited).
Not able to attend the conference in-person? You can still experience our programming virtually. Simply purchase a virtual ticket and enjoy remote access to all of Thursday's workshops and speakers.
