The conference will review energy management concepts, company energy evaluation exercises and examples of how companies can adapt or establish their own smart energy programs. NIPSCO representatives will be on hand to explain the Energy Incentive Program available to many business operations throughout the region.
With the guidance of the ENERGY STAR program, the participating companies in the session have integrated energy management systems into their core business strategies, assigned a corporate function responsible for energy, and identified the missing pieces for increasing energy efficiency. Northwest Indiana companies can now learn or refresh their knowledge of the process by attending this conference.
