Your Message, Professionally Delivered

IDEA will host a special series of webinars to showcase emerging technologies, explore best practices and engage in conversations with global industry leaders, preferably on the 2nd or 4th Wednesday of the month.

IDEA invites district energy industry leaders to sponsor and provide educational and informational presentations on a rotation of topics ranging from district cooling, combined heat and power (CHP) and microgrids to energy-sharing, thermal storage and optimization strategies.

If your organization works in the district energy space with valuable information and expertise you would like to share with our global community, reserving these very limited  time slots is an excellent investment.

The event will be presented live, but will also be archived on our website post-event for as long as you want, accessible to the thousands of people who visit our website every month. 

Hear What Others Have to Say

We feel confident that your participation as an Insights and Innovations sponsor will be a worthy investment of your time and efforts. But don't take our word for it, see what our first I&I webinar presenter had to say.

Here at Flexim America, we were very pleased to present the first session of the new IDEA “Insights & Innovation” Information Series.

It worked out very well for us and the team at IDEA makes it easy and seamless.  IDEA reaches such a unique and highly-qualified audience, specifically interested in our technology and best practice solutions. 

Now, with the contact information for over 500 registrants, it was like holding our own IDEA conference, from the convenience of our office.  I would highly recommend to other IDEA member organizations to book a session on IDEA’s I & I Series.
