ABOUT THE SUMMIT

 

Over the past eight years, the annual Montgomery County Energy Summit has offered cutting-edge education focused on the latest trends in green building, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and related commercial, multifamily, and residential topics in Montgomery County. Our target audience includes building owners, property managers, developers, energy contractors, and other sustainability professionals working in Montgomery County and the larger DMV area. This event tends to attract 300+ attendees, speakers, and exhibitors.

This year’s Summit will focus on Innovation in three education track areas: Technology, Policy & Practices, and Finance. We will explore strategies, technologies, and case studies focused on spurring cutting-edge sustainable solutions for the commercial, multifamily, and residential built environment. The three education tracks will feature innovative approaches to technology implementation, policy and program design, and creativity in financing projects.

The Summit will include breakout education sessions and keynote speakers. All education sessions will be approved for GBCI and AIA continuing education credits.

Disclaimer: We hope to hold this hybrid event with in-person education sessions streamed for online audiences. Due to the uncertainty of the pandemic, the event organizers may shift to an all-virtual event for the safety of our attendees.
