The 10th Annual Manufacturing in America event showcased over 60 exhibitors and 100 seminars in Detroit last month. Electro-Matic and Siemens partnered on this two day event once again, successfully bringing in over 2,300 attendees to Ford Field.
Presentations varied from specific information about products and technological upgrades, to energy conservation and upgrades within facilities. A few highlights in addition to the LED (Lighting Energy and Displays) Pavillion, included presentations from:
PACE Equity: Bob Mattler spoke about the upcoming boom of full turn-key Property Assessed Clean Energy, (PACE), and the ability to use this type of financing as a stimulus for building long term savings and economic growth for larger businesses.
Michigan Saves: Mary Templeton, Executive Director, talked about the non-profit that finances improvements with smaller loans and smaller rates for all efficiency upgrades that saves energy on smaller projects that cannot be associated with PACE.
DTE Energy: Dan Lipman, Adviser, gave a detailed program review of their Energy Incentives Program which has paid out approximately $127 million since 2009.
Consumer's Energy: Outreach Professional David Kirk stated that Consumers Energy has the same type of program as DTE with payments coming at the same 4-6 week period of time.
Electro-Matic Visual: Dave Scaglione, President, spoke about understanding the evolution of technology in the marketplace, and will present a Webinar in September with the same engaging topic.
