Release Date: Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Washington, D.C., February 2010 – World-class business, technology, government and policy leaders will convene May 10-12 at the Alliance to Save Energy’s EE Global 2010 Energy Efficiency Forum and Exposition – the only such international event focused exclusively on energy efficiency. Registration for the conference at the Washington, D.C., Convention Center is now available.

Already more than 50 energy experts from around the world are lined up to address four plenary sessions and four concurrent tracks of Executive Dialogue sessions. Each track concentrates on one of four key energy end-use sectors: buildings, consumers, industry and utilities or transportation and urban planning.

Executive-level speakers from the public sector include Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Cathy Zoi; Federal Energy Regulatory Commissioner Jon Wellinghoff; International Energy Agency Senior Policy Analyst for Efficiency in Buildings Jens Laustsen; and European Parliament Member Lena Ek of Sweden.

Private-sector experts include executives of Danfoss, Électricité de France, Intel, Pulte, Schneider Electric, Siemens, United Technologies Corporation and Whirlpool, as well as many notable representatives of academia, foundations, local governments, NGOs and labor.

Building on the success of EE Global 2009 in Paris, this year’s conference returns to the U.S. capital – the epicenter of U.S. energy and climate policy – and offers even more interactive sessions, more networking opportunities and a fresh approach to the traditional exhibition hall: The Solutions Showcase.

“The sessions and exhibits at EE Global 2009 were said to constitute a graduate-level curriculum in energy efficiency for government officials, energy professionals, researchers, academics and other world-class energy leaders; and EE Global 2010 will further this education process,” noted Alliance President Kateri Callahan.

“EE Global 2010 also will offer unparalleled opportunities to forge the essential international partnerships and alliances needed to confront today’s urgent energy challenges and to make the transition to a low-carbon economy,” she added.

A number of fortunate registrants will win free All-Access Passes to attend not only the many informative conference sessions over three days but also the engaging networking and social events. To enter the biweekly drawings, registrants are simply asked to submit, with their registration forms, three to four sentences stating why they are looking forward to attending EE Global 2010.
