Behavior, Community, & Transportation on tap for VEIC at Upcoming Conference

Nov 25, 2014

The eighth annual Behavior, Energy, and Climate Change Conference (BECC) will take place in Washington D.C. through this year. With more than 700 participants last year, this year’s conference is promising to be an impressive gathering of professionals from the energy efficiency, policy, and social science sectors. Four of VEIC’s own experts will present at BECC to share information and insights about the innovative work they do to identify and shift consumer perceptions about energy and transportation efficiency.

Dave Roberts, senior consultant on the transportation efficiency team at VEIC, will give a presentation on measuring and transforming consumer attitudes toward plug-in vehicles. Nick Lange, a consultant at VEIC specializing in behavioral energy savings, will discuss the challenges faced with achieving energy savings through behavior change and possible solutions that can be implemented. Chris Gordon, a program manager at VEIC, will discuss his work promoting commuting alternatives and building innovative partnerships to reduce carbon emissions from transportation. And Paul Markowitz, manager of community engagement for the VEIC-administered energy efficiency utility Efficiency Vermont, will discuss his experience and success connecting with customers through community energy programs.

BECC focuses on the understanding of behaviors and actions as they relate to energy usage. The goal of the conference is to provide attendees with a platform for discussing and developing strategies to tackle our nation’s climate challenges. In addition to representing the organization’s expertise in customer engagement and energy efficiency, these four VEIC presenters will have the opportunity to learn from and build important partnerships with an influential group of professionals.
