UPDATE, APRIL 20, 2017

The deadline has passed for submitting ideas for breakfast roundtables, and it looks like we have a great list of topics. 2017 Rountables are:

  1. Manufactured Homes
  2. Real-time BPA Oversight and You
  3. BPA Commercial Program
  4. Agriculture
  5. Transmission & Distribution Deferral / Non-Wires
  6. Storage / Batteries
  7. Load Control / Demand Response Tables
  8. Outdoor LED Lighting Opportunities
  9. Connected LEDs


Do you plan to attend Efficiency Exchange 2017 in Portland, but don’t see a session on an important topic on the agenda? No worries, suggest it as a breakfast roundtable topic. Beginning at 7:30 a.m. on May 10, we’ll host informal roundtables where attendees can gather over breakfast in small groups for informal discussions.

As a host, you'll moderate an energy-efficiency conversation that's important to you. As an attendee, you’ll have the opportunity to select an energy-efficiency topic that interests you, then explore solutions with your Efficiency Exchange colleagues. Topics must be of interest to the utility community attending Efficiency Exchange, and not be focused on business development. By suggesting a topic, you are agreeing to moderate that breakfast roundtable discussion. You must be a registered conference attendee to moderate a roundtable.

Please submit your idea as a comment below or email Carol Lindstrom and I’ll reach out to you to confirm your topic. Deadline for submissions is April 14, 2017. We look forward to hearing your ideas.

About Efficiency Exchange: Efficiency Exchange is the premier networking and learning conference for energy efficiency professionals from across the Northwest.

Oversight: In 2016, BPA concluded a 3-year oversight plan.  Since then, BPA has been working to design a new plan that address several of the unintended consequences stemming from the prior design.  BPA plans to refine the plan with customer input in the coming weeks and would appreciate this opportunity to talk with you about what to expect and what your utility can do to prepare for oversight.

I would be interested in talking with others, and/or leading a discussion on LED outdoor lighting opportunities (LED luminaires, improved controls, night sky, etc.)

David Christie on 04/13/17 on 12:40 PM (Pacific Time)

I would be interested in hosting a table discussing connected LED's
