HOUSTON, March 2, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Mark Danzenbaker, CEO at GridPoint, will join world leaders at the energy industry’s preeminent annual conference to provide insights on energy efficiency strategies and technology for commercial buildings.
CERAWeek, by S&P Global, brings together global leaders to advance new ideas, insight and solutions to the biggest challenges facing the future of energy, the environment and climate. Widely considered to be the most prestigious annual gathering of CEOs, policymakers and ambassadors from global energy, CERAWeek speakers, innovators and thought leaders will cover industries such as utilities, automotive, manufacturing, policy, finance and technology. CERAWeek 2023 will explore strategies for a world in turmoil, kicking off with an executive conference featuring 350+ sessions, including moderated discussions, expert-led presentations, candid conversations, seminars, meetings, hubs and networking opportunities designed to facilitate meaningful dialogue, stimulate new thinking and foster learning.
Mark Danzenbaker, CEO at GridPoint, will join an expert panel to discuss “Making Buildings More Energy Efficient.” Improving building energy efficiency is perhaps the single greatest obstacle to meeting global ambition on decarbonization. Yet, it’s become a top priority as energy costs are exponentially increasing across the map and global carbon reduction targets are quickly approaching. This panel will discuss challenges, innovations and insights surrounding energy efficiency for buildings, as they relate to technology, policy, infrastructure and more.
Danzenbaker will also lead an Innovation Agora Pod presentation titled, “Smart, Connected Buildings as a Resource.” The CERAWeek Innovation Agora program highlights emerging technologies in the energy space with a continued focus on decarbonization. This session will cover innovative demand-side programs, novel financing, delivery approaches and automated technologies for smarter commercial building operations and decarbonization. Additionally, audience members will learn how these elements can come together to remove barriers for buildings to participate as grid resources, unlock grid flexibility and engage businesses today to accelerate a more sustainable energy future.
