Danny Macri and Emily Bolger from ENERGY STAR will give an Overview of the Energy Treasure Hunt Process and provide insights into using the ENERGY STAR Treasure Map for Microbreweries which is an opportunity for brewers to uncover opportunities to save. Scott Lawson, Director of Brewing Operations at Lawson’s Finest, will then demonstrate How to Conduct an Energy Treasure Hunt in a Brewery and show how to maximize efforts in reducing energy costs.
