The BCSE is proud to host an affiliate event at the inaugural Global Climate Action Summit. This event will showcase the 2018 Sustainable Energy in America Factbook findings and feature a round-table discussion with experts in the energy efficiency, natural gas, and renewable energy industries.
A transformation is well underway in the United States towards an energy portfolio that embraces cleaner sources and more efficient uses of energy and is boosting the energy productivity of the country and delivering economic, environmental and emissions benefits. The findings of the 2018 Sustainable Energy in America Factbook will frame the progress of this energy transformation.
A round-table discussion will be held with leaders in the private sector – in building efficiency, corporate sustainability, internet of things, lighting, renewable energy, sustainable transportation, utilities and more – that are delivering solutions to create health energy systems and low-carbon, resilient infrastructure, and are generating jobs and economic growth in our communities. Attendees are encouraged to share their achievements and commitments to climate action.
This event aims to showcase how the technology solutions and effective policy approaches already exist to help reduce emissions in the energy sector, and that greater ambition can be pursued when policy actions embrace a broad portfolio of clean energy solutions and include partnership and consultation with the private sector.

The BCSE event will kick off a half day of round-table discussions that will also explore the potential for more energy efficient transportation in the U.S. and what is needed to galvanize a global movement that promotes building energy efficiency. Attendees are encouraged to join these subsequent events.
