Our efforts to tell the story of the importance of the energy power and control sectors has led us to various opportunities for networking and education with public officials.
Recently, we entered into partnerships with Chicago, IL.-based Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance as well as the American Council on Renewable Energy and United States Energy Association, both located in Washington, D.C. These collaborative relationships will strengthen our insight in policy and programs across the Midwest and nationally, enhancing the value proposition we deliver to our members.
In late January M-WERC Executive Director, Alan Perlstein spoke to the United States Energy Association on M-WERC's role in the EPC industry and our work towards growing that market sector through open innovation (link to presentation).
This early 2015 event was part of our second trip to Washington in the past quarter. We also met with staff from Senator Tammy Baldwin's office and representatives from the administrations of several Midwestern states to connect on the opportunities in our region for EPC industry.
In late 2014, M-WERC staff met with lawmakers' offices in DC to discuss the potential for a medium voltage lab located within the M-WERC Energy Innovation Center. This exciting vision will be a collaborative effort between our corporate members and academic supporters that showcases our open innovation, collaborative process.
At the local level, we're pleased to report ongoing cooperation with the Milwaukee Mayor's Sustainability Office and various elected officials from the Wisconsin Legislature.
