“The quality of our EE Global speaker lineup is evidence that energy efficiency is an issue that resonates with a global audience,” observed Alliance President Kateri Callahan. “EE Global offers unique leaning and networking opportunities for energy and energy efficiency industry professionals in all end-use sectors. EE Global brings them together from around the world to discuss the critical energy issues of today, the next decade, and beyond.”

The EE Global program features 24 90-minute Executive Dialogue sessions, each designed to fit one of four end-user “tracks” – buildings, industry and utilities, transportation and urban planning, and consumer. Within these tracks, each session will focus on one of four key cross-cutting issues – finance, policy, technology, or market transformation.
