Who attended the 2021 Midwest Energy Solutions Conference? What a week of inspiring content and critical conversations with our Midwest energy efficiency colleagues. We talked everything from affordability to resiliency to equity to decarbonization (and more!), carried the discussions into our interactive networking lounge and decompressed with on-demand fitness classes and engaging happy hour games. Thanks to all who attended and made it another memorable MES, and a special shoutout to our incredible sponsors and speakers and the MEEA board for making this year's pivot a success. Until next time! meeaconference.org

We recently released the 2021 Midwest Energy Efficiency Spotlight, which showcases the impact energy efficiency policies and programs have had for Midwestern residents and businesses. This year, we tracked 14 metrics to show energy savings, affordability, climate benefits and more.

We invite you to take a moment to reflect on and celebrate the EE industry's contributions in creating prosperous and resilient local, state and regional economies while driving energy savings to meet current and future energy demand.

Thank you Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance for the feature on Thrive!

"Indianapolis [has one] of the most comprehensive plans of the cities studied when it comes to energy efficiency goals. Their emphasis on equity elevates their plans and distinguishes them from the rest."

Also mentioned, our friends at Indianapolis Power & Light Company for the important Income-Qualified Weatherization Program & INHP for the ECOHouse Project Loan Program. Cohesive community partnerships are a critical part of sustainable climate action.

Take part in our panel at the Iowa Energy Summit this Wednesday to earn Continuing Education credit and learn how we help position real estate agents to successfully spread the word about energy efficiency programs and benefits. www.iowaenergy.org/en/iowa_energy_summit/schedule__session_details/

USGBC Iowa and Iowa Association for Energy Efficiency to assign #GBCI Continuing Education credit to four of the presentations at the 2020 Iowa Energy Summit! This includes "Valuing Energy Efficiency Starts with Real Estate Agent Education," presented by Natalia Gardocki of Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance and Pamela Brookstein of Elevate Energy, and moderated by Joe Hejda of the Central Iowa Power Cooperative.

The real estate market for high-performing, energy efficient, sustainable homes is booming in the Midwest. It has been found that efficient homes that are marketed correctly often sell more quickly and for more money than similar, less efficient homes. In order for these homes to be properly valued within the marketplace, real estate agents need access to training and educational materials surrounding energy efficiency in homes to gain the confidence necessary for them to, in turn, educate their clients.

Have you heard? The 2021 Midwest Energy Solutions Conference is going virtual, across four days this February.

Until recently, conferences have been about entering a hotel ballroom and being inspired by thought leaders, connecting with peers and returning home feeling reinvigorated to tackle your work with a fresh mindset and a pocketful of business cards.

MES 2021 will still inspire you, introduce you to new people and programs, help build new business connections and re-energize your work - just without the travel! 2021 MES' new location? Your home! Mark your calendars: meeaconference.org/

The Midwest lost 96,672 energy efficiency jobs and 138,422 clean energy jobs since COVID-19 began, according to a new report published by E4TheFuture, erasing the expansion the industry enjoyed in recent years. But the need for energy efficiency doesn’t go away amid a crisis or during an economic downturn and restoring these jobs will play an essential role in rebuilding our economy and saving customers money. We inquired: how will the EE workforce bounce back? mwalliance.org/blog/assessing-covid-19s-impact-how-will-ee-workforce-bounce-back

Two weeks from today marks the start of 2020 MES activities! Join MEEA and industry leaders at the Midwest’s premier energy efficiency conference for three days of panels, workshops, networking opportunities and celebrations of industry successes. On the fence? Here’s what some of our past attendees had to say about MES:

• “My best networking all year long.”
• “I’ve met many of my current clients at MES.”
• “The mix of attendees is one of the main reasons we like the MES conference so much.”

#ICYMI: Yesterday, we unveiled our annual Midwest Energy Efficiency Spotlight. Even in the face of challenges - carrying the bulk of the nation's industrial sector, enduring significant seasonal weather shifts - the Midwest manages to make strides in the EE industry, and we're sharing some of those success stories. For the 2020 edition, we tracked 12 metrics showing energy savings, job creation, manufacturing hubs and more: mwalliance.org/resources/spotlight

Last week, our little MEEA family—down a few from the flu—took a break from efficiency to pour our energy into a volunteer day at the Greater Chicago Food Depository. We repacked 16,632 pounds of oranges, to help other families fight the flu with lots of vitamin C! All that citrus will supplement 13,860 meals across Chicagoland communities. That’s 347 meals per volunteer…maybe we didn’t take a break from efficiency 😉 #endhungernow #powerofnonprofits
