Groom Energy to Host Two-Day Enterprise Smart Grid and ISO 50001 Conference

SALEM, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 21, 2011) - Groom Energy today announced the agendas and presenters for its Enterprise Smart Grid and ISO 50001 conferences to be held the afternoon of Nov 1, 2011 and all-day Nov 2, 2011 at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Logan Airport, Boston, Mass.

Groom Energy's research estimates the Enterprise Smart Grid market is $5.2B and growing by 40 percent per year. The Enterprise Smart Grid is the application of energy submetering, software and management controls for reducing energy consumption. Groom has also determined that the newly introduced ISO 50001 energy management standard has the potential to define energy management practices for large corporations.

To address the market and these important standards, Groom is bringing together energy, facility, sustainability and utility managers to discuss these latest trends. The events will feature case study presentations from organizations such as Genzyme, Harvard University, Millipore and Staples.

The Nov. 1st half-day ISO 50001 event will provide an overview of the recently introduced ISO standard and the Department of Energy's Superior Energy Performance (SEP) certification program. Presentations will be led by DEKRA, the only SEP certification body, and the certifier for all five current SEP certificates. The group will cover best practices learned by helping Alcoa, Dow Chemical, Freescale Semiconductors, Owens Corning, Cook Composite Polymers, and others to become SEP certified.

The Nov. 2nd full-day Enterprise Smart Grid event will feature presentations and panel sessions with corporate energy managers describing ways in which their organizations use submetering for usage visibility and energy management systems to control and optimize their energy consumption.

The Enterprise Smart Grid Conference agenda includes:

  • Overview of Enterprise Smart Grid
  • Corporate Energy Management Case Studies from Beacon Capital Partners, Harvard, Genzyme, Millipore, Precision CastParts, Staples and Stony Brook University
  • Trends in Demand Response - What You Need to Know
  • Energy Management Software Vendor Landscape Overview
  • How Walmart and Proctor & Gamble Use their Supplier Scorecards to Drive Energy Awareness with Executives
  • Financing Options for Energy Efficiency Projects
  • Trends in Utility Incentives and Government Policies for Corporations in New England

CA technologies, Hara and SAP are event gold sponsors, and will be joined in exhibiting by CarbonSystems, Daintree Networks and Serious Energy.

"This event will provide attendees an effective forum to learn from leading companies who have implemented Enterprise Smart Grid and ISO 50001 for their businesses," said Paul Baier, vice president of sustainability consulting for Groom Energy Solutions. "We are excited to have such a great set of corporate practitioners ready to share their experiences."
