Energy Efficiency Forum 2016
Energy systems are evolving, with traditional users acting as both energy consumers and producers. Both “prosumers” and traditional energy suppliers are paving the way. They’re employing distributed generation, energy storage, demand response and information technologies – along with energy efficiency – to transform these systems.

At the 27th Energy Efficiency Forum, co-sponsored by the U.S. Energy Association and Johnson Controls, we highlighted the pioneering policies, technologies and practices at the center of a future that values energy efficiency as a key driver of energy system innovation.
