2017 Michigan Energy Summit

The 2017 Michigan Energy Summit celebrated the 2016 Michigan Battle of the Buildings ‘biggest losers’ and welcomed the new 2017 competitors. The full day event brought leading building owners & operators from across the state in a peer to peer learning platform. Guests learned how Michigan companies are successfully reducing their energy costs while maintaining occupant comfort & increasing productivity.  The days topics included; different approaches by corporations, small business, non-profit, governmental & educational institutions, and how some are financing projects with no capital and an immediate ROI (Return on Investment). You can find the 2017 Agenda here!
