Organizer Amanda Oja says this year's conference will have over 40 sessions talking about heating, ventilating and cooling technologies, solar power and more.

New this year is a set of free mini-sessions that will be offered on Tuesday Feb. 20 from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. In the exhibit hall. During this time, anyone is invited to stop by and learn more about air source heat pumps, electric vehicles, and other utilities that have the ability to become more energy efficient. The exhibit hall is also free to the public throughout the conference.

Oja says participants in the conference are those who are in the industry or a business person that's "dig deeper." These mini sessions will allow folks who don't study the subject of energy-efficiency to get a "high-level understanding" of some of these technologies.

"I think it's constantly changing and things like this are a way for people to learn about what's coming up and what's on the horizon," Oja says.
