Telling the story of energy efficiency can be difficult. Measures are not as easily identifiable as other forms of energy, and the benefits can be difficult to articulate to those outside of the industry. This panel will explore how professionals can showcase their energy efficiency projects in an effective manner, and tell their story to local elected officials, relevant stakeholder groups, and media outlets with the end goal of creating energy efficiency champions in the public at large and with policy makers.

Learning Objectives:
