Track 3: Energy Manager Summit
Wednesday, June 7 | 11:20 a.m. – Noon

Speaker:
Eric Dominguez, vice president, facilities, engineering and sustainability, Caesars Entertainment

Many companies may consider making investments in aging facility infrastructure a bitter pill to swallow. Who wants to tie up money in heating, ventilation, air conditioning or lighting equipment (some of which nobody ever sees outside of facility maintenance staff) when there are so many other interesting places to invest? Leading organizations are discovering that investment in infrastructure can get the juices flowing and put a smile on the CFO’s face. Finding opportunities in existing buildings to strategically upgrade aging equipment while lowering operating costs and reducing environmental impact is a real-world example of delivering “triple-bottom-line” value.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to identify high-value opportunities to retrofit and recommission aging facilities and infrastructure
  • How to undertake a cost-benefit analysis and make an investment case to the CFO
  • How projects can have a positive environmental impact and reduce greenhouse gas emissions while delivering exceptional returns on investment
