    Austin "Smart Cities Powered by Smart Grids" Roadshow

    12:00 PM to 5:00 PMAustin, TX

    In 2014, the University of Texas at Austin became the first PEER certified campus in the world.

    UT Austin has a longstanding reputation for innovation when it comes to energy efficiency and reliability. This reputation was independently validated when UT Austin successfully completed the rigorous Performance Excellence in Electricity Renewal (PEER) review process, demonstrating its dedication to sustainable power and continuous improvement. They were also focused on their communications backbone, advanced metering infrastructure, emergency response planning and improvement planning.

    Join us after Energy Thought Summit at the UT campus to hear from their Associate Vice President for Utilities, Energy and Facilities Management, Juan Ontiveros share the UT Austin PEER certification story. Joining him will be Michael Webber, Deputy Director of the Energy Institute and Co-Director of the Clean Energy Incubator.

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

    The program is intended for sustainability and facility/engineering management for campus energy systems, microgrids and electric power fields.
