SPEER, in collaboration with the State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) and Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC), invites you to become part of the City Efficiency Leadership Council (CELC). The Council supports public sector energy efficiency initiatives through peer-to-peer resource sharing and ideas generation. Whether you are just getting started with efficiency or have recently completed a project, CELC's bi-annual regional roundtables are an opportunity to grow your professional network, gain technical expertise, and find inspiration for your next energy efficiency project!

CELC Webinar: Remote Energy Assessments and Savings with EnerWisely

Thursday, March 25, 2021, 9-1O AM CST

The expansion of access to energy data creates the potential for customers to better manage their energy use and spending than ever before. Yet, the average user does not have the time or expertise to analyze data and identify savings opportunities. In a world that tracks calories, steps, and miles; people should know what affects their Real Energy Cost. The reality is that electricity plans and rates are just the tip of the iceberg.

In this month's webinar Patricia Vega with Quantum New Energy will share how EnerWisely empowers customers to understand the hidden factors making your bills sky-rocket. Through a partnership with ENERGY STAR, EPA's program, the platform offers users easy access to energy analysis and identifies energy efficiency opportunities remotely.

Energy Efficiency, Grid Resilience and Reliability

Energy efficiency is an excellent resource for grid resilience:

  • reduces emissions
  • aids to normalize prices for customers
  • will help reduce both summer, and now winter, peak demands
