Big Ten & Friends
Mechanical & Energy Conference
September 20 – 23, 2015
Welcome to the University of Maryland, the location of the 2015 Big Ten & Friends Mechanical & Energy Conference. This year’s conference will be held September 20 – 23, 2015 at the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center and we look forward to your participation.
The Big Ten & Friends Mechanical & Energy Conference will bring together facility owners, operators, engineers and professionals in higher education and business partners to network, listen to, and take back information to continually improve the sustainability and efficiency of campus and university infrastructure. Mechanical infrastructure and operation directly impact facilities’ energy and carbon footprint. This year’s conference hopes to blend industry developments and practices to improve energy consumption, ultimately and potentially reducing carbon footprint while meeting ever-increasing demands for resiliency, reliability, comfort, and indoor air quality. Methods of monitoring, measurement, and control allow for facilities personnel to meet these needs.
The University of Maryland is located just outside the Nation’s Capital, Washington, DC. The College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, located within the 1856 Land Grant Institution, is within walking distance of the University grounds and facilities.
We truly hope you will be able to join us for both an enjoyable & educational experience.
