The use of renewable energy sources in Massachusetts is on the rise. But what are these energy sources? What systems are being used? What are the incentives? And how do you market energy? Columbia Construction's Christopher McCarthy, Energy Division VP; Steve Hassell, VP for Business Development; and Conor McGuire, Sustainability Coordinator will offer insight on basic energy trends and their benefits. They will also address how marketing professionals in the A/E/C industry can educate and market these energy initiatives to their clients.
Topics of discussion will be:
- The success story of Columbia's own Solar Array System that was recently installed at their headquarters facility at 100 Riverpark Drive.
- The largest Geothermal installation in the Northeast for the IRS facility in North Andover, MA.
- The role of sustainability within the energy matrix of services.
Following the presentation, please join us for a tour of the Solar Array System located on the roof of 100 Riverpark Drive.
