Annual Meeting Agenda 2014

36th Annual Meeting / October 15-17, 2014
Hotel Santa Fe, Santa Fe, New Mexico

It takes energy to make useable energy. It takes energy to clean the air we need to breath. It takes energy to get and clean the water we drink and use. It takes energy to get the fuel from which we can make usable energy. And when we talk about solid fuels, it takes energy, water and air to convert that stored energy into usable thermal or electric energy. Hence the theme for this year’s annual meeting:

Energy 2014+
The Nexus of Energy, Air, Water, Fuel & Energy

It is impossible to make or do anything without energy. And the cost of energy impacts everything we make or do. For years, Climate Change (Manmade Global Warming) has been and continues to be the driver for the environmental community and their supporters in the Obama Administration including the President. With the 2014 Clean Power Plan proposal, this administration could reshape the energy landscape for the foreseeable future raising the cost of energy to drive the need of energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and adversely impact the poor, less fortunate, retired people on fixed incomes and all those people and companies who cannot afford the capital cost to improve efficiency to keep their energy costs stable. Whenever energy costs go up something else has to go. Sometimes, it is the company.

This year’s annual meeting is extremely important. The questions to consider include. Why do I need Steam/thermal energy? Is Natural Gas the Answer? Is electrification the answer? Who pays for the increased cost of energy? What happens to the cost of water and fuel? What will industrial energy be in the coming years? Consider these and more this October in Santa Fe.
