Are you prepared for even a “mini” blackout, like the one that hit the heart of New York City on July 13? Although about 72,000 customers lost power, the number of people it affected was much higher in the very-busy 42 blocks around Times Square. The cost to businesses during the 5+ hour electricity outage was tremendous. The Saturday-night NYC power outage brought events including a Jennifer Lopez concert, Broadway shows, movie showings and more to a stop. Hotels, attractions, stores and restaurants lost a busy night of business, and are footing the bill for service recovery efforts and equipment damaged when the power returned.

For us, May was packed with travel and tradeshows, new connections and inspiring ideas. We’re not letting up in June, and we’ll be contributing to the IDEA2019 conference in Pittsburgh from June 24–27 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.
Spring tradeshow season has been busy for our team, and the month of May will be no different. We’re (almost) positive the snow and freezing temps are now behind us in the Northeast, so we’ll be hitting the road hard, including in our home state of Massachusetts, as well as in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey.
Tradeshow season is in full swing! Our next stop is the 17th Annual New York State Green Building Conference in Syracuse on April 17 and 18. If you’re accelerating to net zero in the building industry, you won’t want to miss this premiere conference that brings together the Northeast’s leaders in green building research, education and practice.
If you are a building owner or facility manager in New York City, we have no doubt you are looking forward to the 2019 BuildingsNY show as much as we are. While you are there learning how to lock in your property’s profitability, we’ll show you how to unlock its green potential.
As March comes in, we’re roaring to kick-off what is already stacking up to be a busy tradeshow season. This year, three appearances fall over the same stretch of days and two others are scheduled after the ides of March. This is anything but a tragedy, however. The busy schedule can only signify one thing: a shift in the way people think about energy.
Looking to collect some “extra credit” when it comes to your energy savings? If you want to get smart about your energy usage, join us in the Big Easy February 26–March 1 as we powder our beignets at CampusEnergy 2019.
Aegis Energy has been a leader in green technology for over 30 years and counting. How have we stayed at the forefront of the industry? By continually challenging ourselves to invent amazing. This year, that very sentiment is the theme of National Engineers Week, taking place February 17–23. A nod to our company and talented engineers? We’d like to think so.
If someone asked you to think of New York, chances are, even if you’ve never visited, you’ve seen enough of the city on television or in the movies to bring to mind visions of some of the landmarks like the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building, or the men and women in uniform who keep the residents and visitors safe.
January is the month where we make resolutions for the coming year and intend to do our best to keep them. January 10th also marks National Cut Your Energy Costs Day. Why not ring in the New Year by conducting an audit of your energy consumption and take the necessary steps to reduce your energy spend?
