Dan Gibson Alliance to Save Energy “All Roads to Copenhagen” Summit

I’m getting a little pumped about Dave’s panel during the Alliance to Save Energy (ASE)’s “All Roads to Copenhagen” Summit tomorrow. I don’t get a chance to physically get out of the office much so it’ll be a nice opportunity to talk to some people face to face. Plus, I’ll be bringing the video camera and taking some shots while I’m there. And yes to the Alliance, we will be dropping the occasional tweet or two.

The real reason I’m looking forward to the event though is we’re releasing some pretty important news tomorrow and Dave is going to be mentioning it during his panel.

What is it? Well, I can’t say yet. :-)

Be sure to visit the ASE web site for full info on the event. I’m cutting and pasting the full agenda here to make it easier ( Dave’s session starts at 9:20 a.m.) You’ll of course find me by the pastries beforehand.

In the meantime, why don’t you read about National Academies recommendation that the U.S. Department of Energy change its system of setting appliance energy-efficiency standards to a full-fuel-cycle measurement.
