HEALTH UPDATE: Due to concerns about COVID-19, the Montgomery County Energy Summit has been postponed from April to November 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation keeping public health as our priority. Please check back for further updates.

ABOUT THE SUMMIT

 

For the past six years and counting, the Montgomery County Energy Summit has annually offered cutting-edge education focused on the latest trends in commercial energy efficiency, renewable energy, and related issues in Montgomery County. Our core audience includes building owners, property managers, energy contractors, and other green building professionals working in the County and the larger DMV area.

 

For 2020, we are thrilled to announce that we are adding a second-day exploring energy in the residential sector, including relevant topics for developers, building operators, and residents. The theme for this year’s Summit is “A Path to Zero.” We will explore strategies, technologies, and case studies focused on the commercial, multifamily, and residential built environment that are moving the needle towards achieving the County’s ambitious climate goal of carbon neutrality by 2035.

The Summit will include a keynote presentation, breakout education sessions, an Expo Area featuring the latest in sustainable products and services, breakfast and lunch on both days, and a reception on Wednesday.
