Dr. David Mooney, Executive Director Institutional Planning, Integration and Development at NREL, shares best practice on energy efficiency

The U.S. Embassy in Bern is proud to support Dr. David Mooney, Executive Director Institutional Planning, Integration and Development at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), as a guest speaker at Swisspower and SIG Genève’s virtual public event on energy efficiency «Mehr Schub für die Energieeffiziens» https://swisspower.ch/veranstaltungen/energieeffizienz-event/

Energy efficiency is one of the three pillars of the 2050 Swiss federal energy strategy and is becoming increasingly important for energy suppliers. To encourage more efficient use of energy in buildings, transportation, and industry more effective incentives and increased awareness of the potential benefits is required. During the virtual event Monday, November 29, 2021, speakers will discuss the financing of energy efficiency programs and infrastructure and the advantages of energy efficient design. Guest speaker David Mooney will present a U.S. perspective on the subject, and will discuss best practices from his work in the United States.
