The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is hosting the Energy Exchange and Better Buildings Summit, the largest DOE training, trade show, and peer-to-peer knowledge sharing event of the year, in Cleveland, Ohio, from August 21–23, 2018. Co-sponsored by DOE’s Federal Energy Management Program and Better Buildings Initiative, the event is an annual, collaborative forum between the federal government, industry, and state and local stakeholders within the building, energy, water, and transportation communities. Thought leaders will convene to work toward accelerating the adoption of energy and water efficiency, integrated resilience, emerging and secure technologies, and replicable renewable energy solutions.

This year’s event features more than 200 technical training sessions and serves as DOE’s most dynamic opportunity to share best practices, provide technical information and tools, and offer accredited training to federal facility and energy managers. DOE will recognize innovative private sector partners and federal leaders at the FEDS Spotlight and Better Buildings Challenge Partner Recognition sessions and will provide on-site technical expertise alongside experts from the national laboratories at the Ask-an-Expert Lounge.

The Energy Exchange and Better Buildings Summit supports the Administration’s workforce development objectives by convening experts across the broader energy management community to further empower federal facility and energy managers. It brings together hundreds of thought leaders to support the nation’s federal workforce to provide access to tools, guidance, and subject matter expertise.

Attendees will be able to receive training and technical assistance, review best practices, participate in planning exercises, and share validated, replicable solutions that can be used across the energy management community. As a whole, the event provides opportunities to demonstrate cutting-edge projects that are specific to resilient, efficient, and secure building operations.
