This May, AESP is bringing 15 LIVE ONLINE Training Courses to help you perfect your knowledge in the key foundational areas and emerging trends in energy efficiency, including Equity, Electrification, and Decarbonization.
Before or after the training sessions occur, you can meet up here to network with colleagues and meet our SMEs during their scheduled times.
A separate registration is required for the training courses, and they will be delivered on a separate platform. Register for the week 1 spring training courses here: https://www.aesp.org/event/springtraining1
