Kentucky Introduces PEER, Performance Excellence in Electricity Renewal

Resiliency and security are two important topics to consider in our changing energy landscape.  Today, the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet (EEC) is addressing both by launching a new program called PEER, or Performance Excellence in Electricity Renewal. PEER is a new tool to measure and improve power system performance in municipal districts, commercial and industrial complexes, and developed campuses such as military installations.

Please join the US Green Building Council, Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), and the EEC for a free webinar to learn about the Kentucky PEER project, and how reliable and resilient power systems are an essential piece of a healthy energy grid.

What:   Kentucky PEER Webinar

When:  October 25, 2017 – 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM EST

Who:     Energy professionals, utility providers, engineering and design professionals, business and industrial leaders

How:     Register here.  No cost to attend.

PEER is owned and administered by GBCI – the certifying and credentialing body of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system for buildings.

The Kentucky PEER project is funded through a $40,000 federal grant awarded by the EEC. The webinar is the first in a series of education and outreach events to educate customers, stakeholders and policy makers.  For more information, contact Kenya Stump, Kentucky EEC, Kenya.Stump@ky.gov.
