NACUBO showcased institutional successes at the 2018 Congressional Clean Energy Expo and Policy Forum on July 10. The all-day event included 35 exhibitors from business organizations, trade associations, and government agencies highlighting renewable energy and energy efficiency technology.
NACUBO displayed campus efficiency posters previously presented at NACUBO annual meetings and distributed information on 60 higher education institutions’ environmental innovations. NACUBO’s Sally Grans Korsh, director of facilities management and environmental policy, and Megan Schneider, assistant director of federal affairs, discussed benefits that colleges and universities provide, including research developments, community output, and operational savings. Additionally, NACUBO representatives encouraged congressional staff to reinstate the ability to advance refund municipal and private activity bonds, which was eliminated by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
Videos of statements from members of Congress and policy forums that took place during the event are available online.
