Sustainability Forum Discusses Commercial Energy Use
Featuring Panelists from Cummings Properties & Cleantech Start-up SES
What: North Shore Technology Council’s Sustainability Forum on Wed., Oct. 5, takes a close look at commercial energy issues. Featuring Sustainability Manager Gary Gresh from the Cummings Properties and President Paul Laskow of Save Energy Systems.
(Note: November 7 the Forum looks at Residential energy use)
Focus: Combined annual energy costs for U.S. commercial buildings and industrial facilities are $202.3 billion. That accounts for 45% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Consider the fact that 30 percent of that energy is used inefficiently or unnecessarily. (Source: EnergyStar.gov)
In light of these facts, we’ll take a close look at the commercial industry and energy use. Our guests include:
Gary Gresh, Sustainability Manager, Cummings Properties. Headquartered in Woburn, Cummings leases nearly 10 million square feet of commercial space, representing 82 buildings in 10 greater Boston communities.
Paul Laskow, Founder and President, cleantech start-up Save Energy Systems (SES). SES is focused on reducing the costs associated with HVAC (heating, ventilation and A/C) -- the number one source of commercial energy use.
When: Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012. Coffee begins at 8 a.m.; presentation at 8:30.
Where: Cummings Center
Suite 221-E, Bldg. 100
