Crisis in Cannabis Cultivation: Latest Energy Developments in Data, Practice, and Policy

The energy crisis of indoor cannabis cultivation is about to be unleashed in the Northeast. Growing marijuana indoors is extremely energy intensive, and this session highlights the latest efforts to reduce the industry's energy footprint. Attendees will hear from speakers with fingers on the pulse of trends, practices, and policies across the country. As highlighted at BuildingEnergy SRO inaugural session on the subject last year, there is a very small window for growers to coalesce around best practices, providing building energy professionals a unique opportunity. Efforts to collect profile data about cultivators' energy use will be shared, as well as latest updates about market and regulatory developments in Massachusetts and Maine.
