Are You Ready to Scale Up?

Unprecedented levels of investment in energy efficiency and adjacent sectors are poised to transform our industry both regionally and nationally. Growth and expansion are in the cards—but can we take what we’ve been dealt and do it the right way? “Time to Scale Up!” looks to the future with an eye toward the best policy, program, and practical strategies for making this growth stage in our industry both sustainable and impactful.

We invite you to join us in September for KEEA & EEA-NJ’s 12th Annual Policy Conference. Whether your work covers New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or beyond, you’ll leave with real insight on how the energy efficiency industry can meet the moment—and scale.
