Posted on Mar 31 2015 by Marc Rosenbaum

For 36 years, my professional community has been the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEANorth East Sustainable Energy Association. A regional membership organization promoting sustainable energy solutions. NESEA is committed to advancing three core elements: sustainable solutions, proven results and cutting-edge development in the field. States included in this region stretch from Maine to Maryland. www.nesea.org). In early March we gathered once again in Boston for the BuildingEnergy conference. It was one of the best ever.

I go to BuildingEnergy to get my mind twisted out of my ordinary fixed ideas and to learn new ways to think. This year was a bumper crop.
