New Online Think Tank Explores Best Practices in Energy and Water Conservation
AM Conservation Group, Inc. Launches Blog to Share News, Ideas with Conservation Thought Leaders

CHARLESTON, S.C. (October 7, 2013) – In an effort to incite discussion and share best practices surrounding energy and water conservation among industry innovators, AM Conservation Group, Inc., the leading expert in energy and water efficiency solutions, recently introduced “Conservation Think Tank: News, Ideas and Solutions for Energy and Water Company Thought Leaders.”

Since its inception in 1989, AM Conservation Group has supported some of the largest and most successful conservation programs in U.S. history. The goal of the Conservation Think Tank blog is to share a variety of industry news topics with influential leaders and decision makers in the field. Through a weekly post, AM Conservation Group will highlight some of the leading practices and programs in energy conservation and encourage open discussion through the blog’s comment section.

“With so many innovative conservation programs in action, we felt it was necessary to create an online resource that recognizes those making an impact in preserving energy for future generations,” said Kristi Mailloux, Chief Marketing Officer of AM Conservation Group, Inc. “The online news forum will highlight states, municipalities, businesses and individuals that go above and beyond with conservation practices, programs and policies. We hope to inspire and encourage others to follow their lead.”

The Conservation Think Tank is part of an overall movement by AM Conservation to focus on energy and water efficiency programs and services. In addition to providing news and information relevant to the industry, the blog will provide an outlet for utility companies, program managers and government agencies to explore the short and long-term benefits of AM Conservation’s energy preservation programs.

“We want to inform, but also stimulate a conversation. The goal is to provide an open forum for people across the nation to come together and learn from each other’s experiences and successes in the area of conservation,” Mailloux added.

Each week, The Conservation Think Tank will post an article on topics ranging from industry trends and leaders to advocacy and best practices. The website can be found here in its entirety: http://www.amconservationgroup.com/blog/.

For the past 24 years, AM Conservation has been facilitating large energy conservation programs tailored to the specific needs and objectives of their clientele. The company manages programs for ten of the top 20 utility providers in the country including Duke Energy, a leading electric power holding company. In addition, they partner with various utility program managers such as Honeywell, Good Cents, ICF International and Clear Results to assist with major energy efficiency programs across the United States and Canada.
