IDEA Hosts Campus Energy Conference On Feb. 10-13

The International District Energy Association (IDEA) will present “Today’s Solution for Tomorrow’s Climate Challenges” as part of its 22nd Annual Campus Energy Conference on Feb. 10-13 in Durham, North Carolina.

While many campuses are currently facing budget cuts, declining endowments, and energy price volatility, the conference brings together hundreds of energy professionals to share real-world, practical insights on the most efficient and reliable campus energy systems in the world. By implementing some of these solutions, many campus utility directors, facility professionals, energy managers, and sustainability coordinators have an opportunity to capture energy savings through efficiency gains.

22nd Annual Campus Energy Conference Topics:

• Developing utility master plan processes from budget to completion
• Evaluating fuel flexible solutions while managing operating risk
• Assessing the utility master plan impact on Campus Carbon Footprint
• Evaluating technologies to reduce operating costs, cut emissions, and enhance reliability
• Finding federal and state funding resources to support project evaluation, design, and deployment

The conference will be held in conjunction with the Annual IDEA Distribution Workshop on Feb. 9-10. The workshop will feature panel discussions and training on safety, engineering, and maintenance of thermal distribution systems.

IDEA is a leading association dedicated to advancing global environmental quality through efficient district energy with more than 900 members worldwide. Benz Air Engineering is supporting the conference as an exhibitor. Benz Air has delivered patented engineering solutions that optimize efficiency and minimize emissions at several campuses, including the University of Texas at Austin.
