WGL Energy Greens the Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference
This year’s theme was Renew, Restore and Regenerate

 

The Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference was held in College Park, Maryland, from March 26-28, 2017. This year’s theme was Renew, Restore, and Regenerate. The conference highlighted sustainability efforts, such as: renewable energy, net zero building and carbon offsets.

WGL Energy Services, Inc. (WGL Energy) joined other industry thought leaders in participating as a Silver Sponsor. In addition, WGL Energy greened the event by contributing 87 Green-e® Climate certified carbon offsets, sourced from the Chesapeake Bay Region, to achieve carbon neutrality for the event. By contributing carbon offsets, WGL Energy aided in reducing the event’s estimated greenhouse emissions from air travel, vehicle travel, hotel stays and solid waste equal to 18 cars off the road for a year.

Richard Walsh, WGL Energy’s Program Lead for Clean Energy Solutions, joined University of Maryland’s Susan Corry, for a thought-provoking discussion on evolving to net zero emissions. Following suit, WGL Energy staff were on hand in the exhibit hall to discuss the company’s diversified portfolio of green product offerings and how integrating them into an energy management strategy can help organizations achieve their sustainability objectives. In keeping with the conference’s Exhibit Hall Scavenger Hunt theme, which encouraged attendees to engage with participating companies, visitors to the WGL Energy booth received Energy Answers and stickers for their conference passports.
