ENVISIONING OUR FUTURE
CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
The International District Energy Association (IDEA) is pleased to offer
the Call for Presentations for our 2020 Campus Energy Conference
“Envisioning Our Future” to take place in Denver, Colo., Feb. 10-14, 2020.
College and university campuses around the globe are leaders in education,
research and innovation, often serving as vital economic engines supporting
thousands of valuable jobs and services across a local region. An evolution is
underway to renew, decarbonize and strengthen these important community
District energy/CHP systems form the backbone of efficient, resilient and
sustainable energy infrastructure for campuses, healthcare, research centers,
airports and military bases. Aggregating the thermal and electricity needs of
dozens or even hundreds of buildings creates economies of scale that enable
investment in highly efficient, sustainable and resilient energy infrastructure.
College and university campuses have emerged as global leaders in the operation and optimization of world-class district energy systems.
Underpinning the historical operational success of district energy systems is
continuous improvement in systems design and optimization, innovations in
control technologies, and robust peer exchange sharing proven solutions.
Renewal of energy assets will involve new financing strategies and innovative
public-private partnerships. For over 30 years, the annual IDEA Campus Energy
Conference has earned a reputation for excellent technical content, valuable
peer exchange and open, constructive dialogue with business partners in a
relaxed, collegial atmosphere.
Please make plans to join us at the at CampusEnergy2020 in Denver as
we envision a new energy future. Submit an abstract for consideration today!
