Peer to peer 2018: Tools and training for water conservation professionals
May 30-31, San Francisco
Peer-to-Peer is a two-day, dynamic gathering of water conservation and efficiency professionals that is designed to be an interactive experience.
Now in its third year, Peer-to-Peer is back in Northern California at P G & E’s Pacific Energy Center.
This event is designed for both the seasoned professional and staff new to water conservation and efficiency. In 2017, one conservation veteran said, “Peer to Peer provides an experience that reinvigorates my passion and drive for what I do. It provides a community that inspires my professional development where I can gain valuable insights and develop new connections.”
One attendee new to the field stated, “As a new water conservationist, Peer-to-Peer was a great opportunity to fully understand the methods and analysis that goes into achieving utility-wide water savings.”
Following Peer-to-Peer 2017, 100% of those responding to the survey said they would recommend this event to a peer and 90% said they would attend again.
