President's Message

 

Greetings and Happy Holidays!! – December 2017

Happy Holidays!!  And thank you all again for your interest and participation. Our Board works hard to provide the best content and value possible, but it's really our membership (about a 1000 strong now) that makes the Chapter so successful! We have had quite a run this year, with compelling content that’s generated impressive attendance. It was wrapped up nicely in December with our Emerging Technologies meeting, which, especially for December, was extremely well attended. A special thanks to Dinesh Patel and Bryan Jungers of E-Source for putting this highly informative program together. 

AEE-NE kicks off what should be an even better 2018 new year with our annual Energy Outlook Forum, January 10, 2018, 7:30 AM to 12:00 PM.  This half-day, morning meeting will, once again, be hosted by our Platinum Chapter Sponsor, Raytheon, in Waltham. 

We have five presenters this year to deliver a high level overview of the New England energy landscape ahead.  Speakers will provide some framework for topics surrounding gas/electric energy efficiency, demand reduction, clean energy programs and the energy outlook. For a full program description or to register online, please go tohttp://aeenewengland.org/index.php. On behalf of AEE-NE, I want thank Raytheon for once again hosting our premier event for the 12th year in a row!

This is our chapter’s premier event and fills up quickly each year, so please don’t wait to register!

As we are well into the holiday season, I hope everyone has time to spend with family and friends, and has safe and happy holidays.

Chris Pimentel

AEE-NE Chapter President
