October 31-November 2: World Energy Engineering Congress
From the World Energy Engineering Congress website:
"AEE is very pleased to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the WORLD ENERGY ENGINEERING CONGRESS (WEEC) at Atlanta's Georgia World Congress Center, October 31 - November 2, 2012. The WEEC is well-recognized as the most important energy event of national and international scope for end users and energy professionals in all areas of the energy field. It is the one truly comprehensive forum where you can fully assess the "big picture" – and see exactly how the economic and market forces, new technologies, regulatory developments and industry trends all merge to shape your critical decisions on your organization's energy and economic future.
The WEEC features a large, multi-track conference agenda, a full line-up of seminars on a variety of current topics, and a comprehensive exposition of the market's most promising new technologies. CLICK HERE for info on exhibiting at the WEEC.
The WEEC conference and expo target the complete spectrum of technologies and services of greatest importance to our delegates in attendance, including, but not limited to:
Energy efficiency and energy management
Renewable, green and alternative energy
Combined heat & power / cogeneration / distributed generation
Smart grid and electric metering innovations
Integrated building automation & energy management
HVAC systems and controls
Thermal storage and load management
Boilers and combustion controls
Solar and fuel cell technologies
Applications specific to federal energy management programs
Energy services and project financing
Also, in order to address the interests and needs of the large number of U.S. government professionals who traditionally attend WEEC, AEE will again offer a section of the program known as FEMWorks 2012. First introduced as part of the 2006 WEEC agenda, this special multi-track portion of the WEEC conference will include a comprehensive series of workshops for federal energy managers.
WEEC's highly acclaimed GreenStreet expo showcase, introduced in 2007 and co-presented by the U.S. EPA's ENERGY STAR®, will again be a prominent part of the WEEC for 2012. Here you can examine firsthand the latest green / sustainable / environmentally friendly energy technologies now available for both new design and retrofit projects. Conference presentations will facilitate your understanding of these technologies, covering such topics as green building design and retrofit; LEED certification and building commissioning; high performance facilities; federal initiatives; state and local sustainable development programs; the latest developments in renewable energy; reducing carbon emissions; transportation solutions for the future; and green/sustainable project success stories.
Other features for 2012 include a free technology workshops held in the exhibit hall, and several free tours of local energy installations of interest.
The WEEC also serves as the annual convention of the Association of Energy Engineers, and is attended by more AEE members each year than any other single event.
There's no better way to find the immediate answers you need, and to assess the full scope of potential energy solutions available to you, than by attending the 2012 World Energy Engineering Congress."
