The Clean Air Through Energy Efficiency (CATEE) Conference is a premiere educational conference and business exhibition connecting public and private decision makers and thought leaders. Its purpose is to help communities improve decisions that determine the energy and water intensity of the built environment – and reduce related emissions. CATEE 2013 will be held December 16-18, 2013 in San Antonio, Texas at the Hyatt Regency San Antonio on the Riverwalk.
The CATEE conference has rotated annually among Texas metropolitan regions, providing a valuable forum to:
- share information on state and local energy efficiency and sustainability policies;
- raise awareness of the importance of energy efficiency and sustainability measures for the state’s economic well being;
- develop and pragmatically move toward new policy goals; and
- highlight and celebrate successful policies and practices being implemented to achieve emissions reductions and related environmental and economic benefits.
CATEE 2013 is co-hosted by the Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL) of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) and the Texas Chapters of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). This collaboration celebrates the 10th annual CATEE conference and the first shared event of USGBC Texas Chapters.
In recognition of the growing importance of green building requirements in municipal, educational and military facility programs and public/private projects, USGBC conducted a Call for Presentations related to building performance research, and will moderate several sessions devoted to data-driven insights into the outcomes of high performance buildings.
The CATEE Conference attracts an eclectic group of local and state leaders, government officials and staff, business owners, design and development professionals, facility managers, utility and energy services resources, industry experts, researchers, policy makers, and clean energy and air quality advocates. We at ESL are very excited to include more of the green building community through collaboration with USGBC Texas Chapters.
This is the most vibrant conversation available on pathways to a sustainable future for our cities. We want you to join us.
