Making Connections at the 2017 National Grid Energy Efficiency Summit

By Shannon Shea
Marketing Manager at Fairbanks Energy Services

Fairbanks Energy Services was the Former Patriots Player Visionary Sponsor at National Grid's 2017 Customer and Partner Energy Efficiency Summit on October 19th. The summit held at Gillette Stadium connects peers for a day of networking while showcasing the latest innovative technologies and sustainability solutions. This event is a great way for New England-area energy professionals to reconnect and learn about new solutions for improving efficiency.

Each year the summit attracts National Grid’s largest commercial, industrial, municipal and institutional leaders from Massachusetts and Rhode Island. 

As part of Fairbanks Energy's sponsorship, we introduced former New England Patriots players Scott Zolak and Matt Chatham to the crowd of attendees, led the Q&A session, and our booth stood as the autograph-signing station! Following a successful day at the expo, Fairbanks Energy hosted a cocktail party at Howl at the Moon/Splitsville. Check out our photos from the full day below!
