Project Description

Participants from around the world gathered for three days to discuss technical, policy, and program issues related to increasing energy efficiency in industry. Presentations and discussions related to the theme “Energy Productivity in Industry: Partners and Opportunities.” The Summer Study was held July 26 - 29, 2011 at the Niagara Falls Conference Center. NYSERDA staff members Miriam Pye and Chris Stump were Panel Leaders, and organized tours of local NYSERDA projects. Seven papers on NYSERDA projects/programs were presented.


The $75,000 funding level entitles NYSERDA to 30 “waived” registrations, which were used by approximately ten NYSERDA staff members plus NYSERDA contractors presenting papers, representing NYSERDA programs, or hosting tours. The conference is an opportunity to market NYSERDA programs and projects through peer-reviewed papers/presentations, informal sessions, pre-conference sessions and networking, as well as providing professional development.

Project Results

The 2011 ACEEE Summer Study in Industry hosted 291 attendees, an 11% increase from 2009. Miriam Pye suggested and organized the successful opening plenary on Biomimicry. Presentations on NYSERDA projects/programs were well received and networking opportunities were optimized.
