Please Join Us! A Briefing of Financing and Legal Strategies for Energy Procurement by Colleges and Universities

An AASHE Pre-Conference Workshop

At K&L Gates, we are helping higher education institutions develop and implement strategies to meet their full array of energy goals. As global demand grows for clean and reliable energy, many higher education institutions are designing and implementing new energy strategies to achieve institutional sustainability targets, reduce operating costs, and improve reliability.

Join us for a pre-conference workshop at our office in Pittsburgh on Monday, October 1 from 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. as we outline new opportunities for energy procurement by colleges and universities. During our workshop, we will feature Elizabeth Kocs, Head of Sustainable Energy Institute at University of Illinois-Chicago for a keynote address.

One of our dynamic panels will include members of the ENGIE Campus Energy Infrastructure Investment team that structured the innovative deal with Ohio State University, allowing OSU to become an international leader in energy and sustainability. They will discuss the multi-faceted challenges of modernizing aged utility infrastructure with more sustainable technologies, reducing ongoing utility costs, ensuring resilient operations and deploying capital to fund these initiatives that are outside of their core mission.

A second panel discussion will focus on the options for the purchase of renewable energy, covering everything from the mechanics of on- and off-site renewable energy procurement and risk mitigation strategies for large scale off-site renewable purchases, to the unique challenges and opportunities for higher education institutions in meeting their energy sustainability goals.
