Calling all federal energy specialists disappointed by the General Services Administration’s recent decision to pull out of a prestigious energy trade event scheduled in St. Louis for August: You now have an alternative.
“A band of industry partners,” as they call themselves, have arranged a Federal Energy Management Workshop for roughly the same dates. It will be hosted by the same sponsors and include participants originally set to attend the 15-year-old GovEnergy conference.
The event designed to explore management solutions for agencies to become more energy-efficient “is a convenient option for those who already had their travel plans booked,” according to a promoter from Schneider Electric, one of the organizers. “It also is an attempt to help ease the hardships faced by hotels who have tons of cancellations.”
