AESP's 2020 Annual Conference: Three Takeaways


I had the pleasure of attending the Association of Energy Service Professionals’ (AESP’s) Annual Conference in February. The mission of AESP is to “[advance] the [energy] industry through professional development, networking, and supporting for a resilient, sustainable energy future.

At this year’s conference, the definition of a “resilient, sustainable energy future” went well beyond energy efficiency and demand response to include integrated demand-side management (iDSM), electrification, decarbonization and dynamic pricing. Plus, beyond technical sessions, colleagues tackled topics on supplier diversity, channel marketing, program designs, professional development and mentorship. It was a very well-rounded conference with content where anyone could find a topic of interest.
