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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's Summit will take place virtually over 3 days, Nov. 17-19. Tickets may be purchased individually for each day, or attendees can buy a Full Summit Pass and save.

New for 2020, we are thrilled to announce that we are adding sessions 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 breakout education sessions, networking salons featuring the latest in sustainable products and services, a virtual happy hour on Tuesday, and a virtual Energy Roadshow on Thursday. Education sessions have been approved for GBCI continuing education credits, and attendees may earn up to 9.0 general GBCI CEs over the course of all 3 days (3.0 CEs per day).
