Join us to learn about new energy and water reporting requirements for restaurants in larger buildings, available options and incentives to help you track and decrease your energy consumption and details about how to purchase clean energy whether you own the building or are a tenant.

Why this session is important to your bottom line
Restaurants and commercial kitchens are two of the highest energy consumers in buildings—using roughly 5 – 7% more energy per square foot than other commercial buildings, such as office buildings and retail stores. High volume quick-service restaurants may even use up to 10 times more energy per square foot than other commercial buildings. ( U. S. Department of Energy). This means there's a tremendous opportunity for your business to save energy and reduce costs. This session will help you learn how.
