Our second webinar of the season, meant to introduce new companies to the idea of saving energy and money through the EDF Climate Corps program, took place last Friday and was a great success, with twice as many participants as the first webinar we held last month.
It was again moderated by EDF Managing Director Victoria Mills. The panelists this time were Brian Weldy, VP of Engineering and Facility Management at HCA Healthcare and Scott Tew, Executive Director of the Center for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability at Ingersoll Rand. Weldy and Tew discussed their experiences with the program, answered questions about how decisions are made regarding energy investments within their respective companies and how energy efficiency projects get implemented.
Both companies have participated in the program since 2010 and have once again signed up for fellows this summer. If you are interested in what the program can do for your company, the deadline to submit your application and to sign up for 2012 is February 23rd and is coming up faster than you think!
“Our fellow had the ability to introduce us to some of the tools available to us that we weren’t aware of – tools that help us think about how we go about our work, how we think about energy and reducing energy usage for our restaurants.”
-- Jerry Sus, Senior Director of Development & Strategic Technology, McDonald's
