Brewing Up Energy Savings

When: June 6, 2014 - 8:30 am to 2:00 pm

Where: Widmer Brewery
947 N. Russell St.
Portland, OR 97227

Why: The Pacific Northwest has become a worldwide leader in artisan breweries. While this represents an important business niche for our area, it also represents an interesting challenge for energy managers and engineers. Many of these processes use unique equipment and systems. However, this technology is not only relevant to breweries. It also translates to restaurants, grocery stores, universities, schools, and other large kitchen spaces. The summer forum will take a deep dive into these operations, as well as offer a case study and tour of Widmer. We'll even hear from Kurt Widmer himself about the rise of the mirobrewing industry and how they developed their energy efficiency practices over the last 20 years. We'll end the forum in time to join happy hour at the brewery for some additional networking time, if desired.


·         Kurt Widmer, Co-Owner, Widmer Brewing

·         Rob Del Mar, Oregon Department of Energy

·         Tom Hudson, Portland Community College

·         Paul Kuck, Ecova

What Is Oregon APEM?

The Oregon Association of Professional Energy Managers was founded in 1982 as a partnership of business, government and utilities. Oregon APEM seeks to advance the understanding and practice of efficient energy use through forums, newsletters, facility tours, and face-to-face dialogue. Oregon APEM provides a forum for energy and resource management professionals in Oregon and Southwest Washington to share information and to grow professionally. In 2006 Oregon APEM incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Oregon APEM members have a variety of job titles and come from a broad diversity of backgrounds. This diversity enlarges the scope of professional level information disseminated among the members. Oregon APEM members and their communities benefit from informed input into the design of utility programs, government legislation, and efficient business operations.
