2016 Big Ten & Friends Mechanical & Energy Conference

Welcome! The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is pleased to host the 2016 Big Ten & Friends Mechanical & Energy Conference on October 9-12, 2016 at the I Hotel and Conference Center in Champaign, IL. We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful campus.

The Big Ten & Friends Mechanical & Energy Conference will bring together facility owners, operators, engineers, and professionals in higher education as well as their business partners to network and exchange ideas to improve the sustainability, efficiency, and maintainability of campus and university infrastructure. Mechanical infrastructure and operation directly impact energy consumption. This year’s conference will blend industry developments and best practices with a refresher of back-to-the basics topics. Discussions will focus on methods to reduce energy consumption and the carbon footprint while meeting ever-increasing demands for maintainability, configurability, resiliency, reliability, comfort, and indoor air quality.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is located in the heart of Central Illinois. The I Hotel and Conference Center in Research Park, adjacent to the south campus of the University of Illinois, is within walking distance of University grounds and facilities.

We invite you to learn, network, and share your expertise with other attendees at the 2016 Mechanical and Energy Conference.
