KNOXVILLE – The Tennessee Energy Education Initiative, a program of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), is partnering with Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the City of Knoxville to host a free, two-day sustainability summit in Knoxville on August 21 and 22.

The Oak Ridge National Laboratory 3rd Annual Southeast Sustainability Summit will be held at the Holiday Inn World’s Fair in Downtown Knoxville at 525 Henley Street. The first day begins with a networking breakfast, continues with two tracks of programming and concludes with a reception. The second day includes two program tracks and networking opportunities and ends with a tour of sustainability sites across the city. A full agenda and registration details can be found at

“In-depth educational programming—like this summit—is critical to encouraging and enabling leaders to advance energy efficiency and sustainability,” said Robert Martineau, commissioner of TDEC. “Sharing industry insights and best practices opens the door to the future of sustainable communities in Tennessee.”

Presentations and discussions will focus on energy efficiency upgrades, changing behaviors in the workplace, sustainable transportation and information on energy conservation bonds. Industry experts will share case studies and provide insights and practical knowledge needed for attendees to envision and execute their own energy efficiency projects.
