Dale Desmarais, Director of Sales and Marketing for Aegis Energy, EDF Group, will present at the BuildingEnergy NYC Conference and Trade Show.
The conference will be held at the Time & Life Center at 1271 Avenue of the Americas on Oct. 16. It is the third annual conference hosted by Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA).
“There are a lot of organizations that are promoting Energy Efficiency these days but the work that NESEA is doing to connect the dots is having a huge impact,” said Desmarais. “They are helping to outline the action plans for building owners and are providing all of the resources necessary to reduce usage and save money.”
The BuildingEnergy NYC event will play host to building scientists, construction managers, policy experts, and innovators in fields ranging from Passive House design, to renewables, and commercial / institutional building.
