Ecosystem attended IDEA’s Campus Energy Conference in Grapevine, Texas, earlier this month. The conference, which brings together energy professionals from colleges and universities across North America, featured a diverse range of speakers and panels on the latest trends, challenges, and solutions in campus energy management.
Ecosystem was represented by a big team: Bob Mancini, Director of Business Development, Jean-Philippe Drouin, Director of Project Development, Asaph Benun, Managing Director of Business Management, Rick Kinsinger, Project Development Engineer, Stephane Michaud, VP, Innovation and New Markets, and Andre Rochette, Ecosystem’s founder.
As part of the conference, Mancini and Drouin joined Jess Berry, Director of the Office of Sustainability at Brown University, on the “Decarb Refresh: Renewing Brown University’s Roadmap to Decarbonization” panel. The panel discussed Brown University’s ambitious plan to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040 and highlighted the importance of collaboration between campus stakeholders to achieve meaningful progress. Mancini and Drouin shared their perspectives on the technical and operational challenges of decarbonization. They also highlighted the importance of data analysis and performance monitoring in achieving long-term sustainability goals.
“Ecosystem is proud to be leading this important conversation on decarbonization with Brown University,” said Mancini. “As an advisor for colleges and universities across North America, events like Campus Energy are essential for sharing best practices with and driving innovation and real change for our peers. Our three decades of experience has led us to develop proven strategies and tools to create actionable roadmaps, and implement results driven projects in a way that can achieve multiple outcomes for the same budget. It’s very rewarding”
Ecosystem’s participation in the conference reflects our commitment the energy transition. Over 30 years, we have built a diverse portfolio of projects across North America, and Ecosystem is well-positioned to help campuses and communities transition to a low-carbon future.
