As technology advances in all facets of life, Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) has positioned itself at the forefront of these developments in the electric utility industry. From an innovative smart grid to a grid-scale battery storage project, REC is taking advantage innovative opportunities to increase member-owners’ ability to be energy efficient.
In an effort to support energy conservation efforts state-wide, REC took part in the Virginia Energy Efficiency Council’s (VAEEC) Fall 2020 Forum and Virtual Trade Show on Nov. 10.
The VAEEC’s annual Fall Forum features learning opportunities focused on the latest topics from industry leaders, with topics including opportunities and challenges for large energy users and how to implement energy efficiency during COVID-19.
In between each discussion, the virtual exhibit hall provides attendees the opportunity to discover new, innovative technology and connect with energy efficiency-focused companies. REC’s exhibit focused on the Cooperative’s sustainability efforts, and how members can implement their own sustainability practices, as well as information on electric vehicle charging.
Although the 2020 event was virtual, there were plenty of ways to attendees to network with REC, as well as event speakers, professionals and other sponsors. For further information on innovative technologies and energy solutions at REC, visit myrec.coop/energysolutions.
