Attend the 
The EOS 2014 Leveraging Low-Income Energy Partnerships

EOS has designed an unprecedented interactive experience for professionals who design and deliver weatherization and other energy affordability programs. You will have two choices:

  • Come to an intimate Washington, DC event and meet speakers and peers in the conventional manner and interact with on-line attendees nationwide,


  • Connect online to the simulcast sessions using our customized interactive tools and ALSO, like an on-site meeting, connect with the other attendees, those online and those at the DC meeting, without the pesky burden of costly travel.

The Partnerships Conference is designed to bring weatherization and community action energy professionals and their private partners a deep understanding of the changing resources and practices in the energy services markets and public programs, including important developments in the utility markets and regulation.  
Our presenters are drawn from influential national organizations in the field and from leadership of our programs.  Each will examine the impact of changes on the network’s programs and on vulnerable energy consumers.  Every session will explore the opportunities for new resources to link to our programs.

Registration will open soon with additional details.  Save these dates and visit our conference website!
