  • Manufacturing process management and improvements
  • Advanced robotics and how it complements energy management practices
  • Management buy-in for every saving projects

The Energy Summit, in partnership with the Canadian Industry Partnership for Energy Conservation (CIPEC) and Natural Resources Canada, brings together energy efficiency experts throughout the country. Speakers will explore energy management, leadership and innovation, environmental sustainability and equipment and processes.
