3 Takeaways from the Energy Efficiency Custom Tech Expo

BOMI International exhibited at the first-ever Energy Efficiency Custom Tech Expo in Baltimore, MD, yesterday. BGE, Pepco, and Delmarva Power co-hosted the event and highlighted ways in which energy-efficient technologies are helping businesses of all types and sizes save energy and money.


Here are 3 takeaways from the expo:
  1. Location, Location, Location: Reason enough to attend the expo. Whether or not you’re a Baltimore Ravens fan, M&T Bank Stadium is an experience in itself. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it’s also the first outdoor professional sports facility to earn a LEED Gold certification. A guided tour of the stadium was available for attendees.
  2. Relevant Speakers: There was a total of 18 sessions at the expo, providing many learning opportunities for attendees. Each speaker was an expert in energy efficiency and his or her respective fields. Session topics ranged from “Power System Optimization” to “How to Successfully Position your Project for Energy Efficiency and Incentive Optimization.
  3. Timing: Baltimore’s Light City took place this same week! Light City is a large-scale international light and ideas festival featuring street art installations, musical performances, an interactive BGE-sponsored light art walk, and much more. The expo aligned well with Light City’s innovative nature.
BONUS – BGE and Pepco’s Incentive Program: BGE and Pepco offer an operations and maintenance (O&M) training incentive for building operation personnel who support facilities in Maryland. Each approved applicant will be eligible to receive a financial incentive that covers a maximum of $1,000 per course, resulting in a BOMI International Accelerated Review course costing only $295 per learner per course.
