Facilities & Campus Energy North America Summit 2024

May 8-9, 2024 - National Harbor, MD, United States

"Improving Energy Efficiencies, Decarbonization, and Resiliency in the Large Built Environment"

The 4th Annual multi-sector Facilities & Campus Energy Summit is designed to provide an interchange of in depth knowledge and serve as a catalyst for collaboration across large built environments that do not necessarily engage one another on a daily basis but all share the common goals of:

Improving strategic planning and technical operations to support decarbonization and electrification, increase overall energy efficiencies and cost savings, reliability, and resiliency., in a financially sustainable manner,. These sectors include:

Higher Education, Hospitals and Healthcare Systems, Corporate Campuses, Federal Facilities and Life Sciences.

The highly curated two-day agenda offers over 5 senior level panels, 8 plenary sessions (no tracks!), 5 hours of dedicated networking and live technology and solution demonstrations onsite.

2024 Topics to Include:

Financing, Design and Operational Strategies:
  • How do we build the business and operational models of new energy efficiency and environmental sustainability projects for our existing buildings, from funding to design, and how do we choose what energy generation and storage systems make sense while meeting key requirements of resilience, power quality and economy?
  • How do we evolve our strategic Master Planning to support not only energy upgrades to our current buildings but future build that meets our organization's evolving ESG goals? What partnership models and economic strategies are we looking at?
  • Current private and public financing mechanisms to support energy efficiency and sustainability projects in your built environment: who's funding what and how?
  • Utilizing our data effectively: How are we evolving our overall lifecycle facilities management framework and enterprise resource planning tools? What should a framework include and what tools do we utilize or are exploring to support our tracking and reporting of emissions?
Technologies and Solutions:
  • Carbon measuring and monitoring tools and techniques including tools to guide decision making towards building reuse and retrofit vs new build
  • Design and engineering best practices and tools to support economic and functional decision making for facility retrofits, reuse and new build design to meet organization's energy and environmental goals
  • Advancements in: heat recovery / cooling technologies
  • Innovations in onsite generation and storage: including integrating EVs, battery storage, building-integrated photovoltaics (PV), microgrids, and more
  • Digital Solutions / EMS capabilities to support make existing buildings “smarter” to improve energy efficiencies, IAQ, reduce carbon and improve resilience
  • HVAC, Lighting and IAQ innovations
  • Best practices in commissioning, envelope upgrades, and much more!

This is my second year in attendance. Not only have the speakers and subjects been incredible but these are the most forward thinkers in the goals of ESG, Sustainability and Resiliency I have met to date. Our firm met some state-of-the-art technology suppliers and are moving forward with them to better our campus building management. This type of discussion is the way we will be successful as leaders in our industries to attain ESG and sustainability / Resiliency goals.

Senior Director Design and Construction, Howard Hughes Corporation.

Exceptional professionalism. I very much enjoyed the level of engagement by your attendees...Thank you for the opportunity to conduct what we call “Knowledge Transfer”
