Event: HGA Presents At CampusEnergy Conference

HGA engineers Joseph Witchger and Brendan Huss will present two programs at CampusEnergy 2020, highlighting new solutions and technologies in energy-efficient campuses and facilities.

The programs include:

Multi-Plant Predictive Optimization at UW, Madison

Speakers: Joseph Witchger (HGA), Brendan Huss (HGA), Jeffrey Pollei (UWM)

Location: Denver, Colorado

Date: February 13, 2020
