Hops to Brew: Tap into the value of energy efficiency

At this year’s Summit, Eric Braddock, Energy Trust of Oregon technical manager, will present a session focused on the vital role that energy plays in the product lifecycle of one of the Northwest’s favorite beverages –Beer.

This session will feature success stories from Pacific Northwest farms and industrial facilities, and showcase the potential for energy-efficient technologies throughout the product lifecycle of beer.

Energy Trust will follow the brewery supply chain from hops farm, to brewing, to the disposal and use of waste, to a tap or cooler near you to show how energy is essential in production, transportation and providing value to the customer. By reducing the footprint through the supply chain, we can reduce the energy that flows through the system, reducing both costs and impacts to the environment.

To learn more about the work Energy Trust has done to help Oregon breweries save energy and generate clean, renewable energy read the Brewery fact sheet and check out the success stories below.

 


Strategic Energy Management Virtual Treasure Hunt

This session will provide a behind-the-scenes view of what’s it like to participate in an Strategic Energy Management (SEM) treasure hunt and share recommendations attendees can use to uncover hidden energy-saving opportunities at their facilities.

Energy Trust SEM coaches and members of the Boise Cascade –Kinzua Lumber team will present video highlights of the mill’s most recent SEM treasure hunt to provide attendees with a behind-the-scenes view into the energy-saving opportunities this activity can uncover.

Boise Cascade and the Energy Trust team will share best practices and lessons learned from the mill’s treasure hunt, and recommend tools and resources attendees can access to help identify hidden energy-savings in their facilities.
