“I’m hearing about things that don’t generally make it into the mainstream.
So it’s a really great window into things that are maybe
just arriving or on the horizon.”

Ann V. Edminster, Zero Energy Consultant, Design AVEnues


It’s a point of contact for people to understand what’s really happening behind the scenes.
When it comes to standards, we would like to know, what are the trends that are driving some of these discussions.”

Carlos Restrepo, VP of Technology, Sonnen


“This is an opportunity to see what’s happening and also meet and network with people that have been doing this over time. Everybody asks me, ‘What is the latest thing that you’re working on?’
That’s what attracts people: the unknown.

Jerine Ahmed, Senior Engineer Technology Area Lead, Whole Buildings & HVAC, Southern California Edison
