June 28 2023, 13:00 PM
On May 24 and 25, 2023, we hosted our fourth annual Energizing Efficiency Conference. The Conference surpassed our goals from last year, making it a resounding success.
The event was sold out and brought together over 324 delegates, sponsors and showcase participants. It provided a thought-provoking opportunity for entertaining discussions and an inspiring atmosphere to envision a sustainable future energy landscape.
The conference served to unite like-minded individuals and organizations dedicated to driving positive change in the energy sector. Through networking, collaboration and knowledge sharing, the event created a sense of collective responsibility and urgency in addressing the impacts of climate change. Attendees were inspired by the diverse range of perspectives and expertise offered by our lineup of speakers.
"Customers’ increased interest in clean energy and the electricity sector’s focus on decarbonization to reduce the impact of climate change will energize our future,” said Lori Clark, President and CEO of NB Power. “The Energizing Efficiency Conference provided a tremendous opportunity to ensure we aren’t taking a siloed approach to the global issue of climate change here in New Brunswick, but rather taking every opportunity to come together and to share ideas and set a path forward together toward realistic change.”
Under the theme of "Building Momentum" the conference emphasized the importance of taking continued action to reduce energy consumption and transition to cleaner sources. The speaker sessions provided valuable insights into the potential of energy efficiency initiatives and emphasized the need to adopt these practices on a larger scale. Participants left the conference with a renewed sense of purpose and determination, ready to champion energy efficiency measures within their industries and communities.
Lori Clark, President and CEO kicked off the conference and spoke passionately about the transformative impact that NB Power’s efficiency programs are having for many New Brunswickers by making their homes more comfortable and energy efficient.
Our keynote speaker Jamie Dinsmore from Microsoft Canada left us with an inspiring message of how Microsoft is moving from “pledges to progress” and striving to be carbon negative by 2030 and by 2050 to remove all historical emissions made by the company since its inception in 1975.
