CES Spring Seminar Series

by Andrew Price, President & COO

While Spring makes most people think of flowers, Easter, a new baseball season and March Madness basketball, at CES, we think about getting together to talk energy. To welcome Spring each year, CES offers a series of energy seminars to existing and prospective clients. The purpose of the seminars is to provide a convenient forum for our diverse client base to come together and discuss timely energy issues. In addition to listening to presentations from CES, we find that our clients also find it useful to network with CES staff as well as each other on common energy issues.  

We always have interesting guest speakers at our seminars and this year was no exception. So far this year we have heard from: Patrick Woodcock, the Director of Maine’s Energy Office, Ray Jackson, the Interim Director of Physical Plant at UMass Amherst, Mary House, a Senior Vice President at Woodard & Curran and Ian Burns of Efficiency Maine.  Everyone offered thought provoking talks on timely energy topics or provided overviews of recent energy related initiatives at their facilities.

This year we will host five seminars. Three have already taken place-- at UMaine Orono on March 12, at Dartmouth College on March 21 and at the University of Southern Maine on April 1, 2013. We will be hosting two more on May 13, at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and on May 14, at Juniper Networks in Westford Massachusetts.

Participation has been great this year, nearing 80 people at the USM seminar. Feedback from attendees allows us to improve the presentations and informational content each year. Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to one of the first three seminars. Don’t hesitate to offer ideas about what you would like to see more (or less of) at these annual events.

If you have not had a chance to make one of the CES seminars yet, you only have two more chances before next spring! We will be sending out details about these final two seminars in the coming days and weeks. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Amherst and Westford.
