Energy Management is more than just turning off the TV and lights like your mother told you as a child. Increasing energy demand, global climate change,
and constrained energy supplies are likely to impact how energy affects your business in the future. Often, there is an interest in reducing energy bills. But
how do you really go about permanently impacting energy?
This lunchtime workshop reviews the basics of implementing and/or improving energy management for industry, universities, laboratories, or for offices.

ENERGY STAR, created in 1992, is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. The ENERGY STAR
Program has been guiding industries to manage energy for over a decade to reduce energy costs, reduce use of limited natural resources, and reduce
greenhouse gases. Manufacturers, universities, laboratories, and offices can join with current ENERGY STAR Partners to learn to save energy through
energy efficient products and practices. While the ENERGY STAR program will be highlighted in this workshop, the energy management tools may be
applied by anyone.
