With more than 400 attendees, exhibitors, and speakers and the launch of the new Energy Management Association (EMA), the inaugural Cx Energy Conference and Exposition exceeded expectations in program content and networking opportunities. The event held in April 2014 in Henderson, Nev., included a 28-session technical program covered topics ranging from total building envelope commissioning, to building and facility case studies, to changes in ASHRAE and LEED standards. AIA learning units were awarded for all sessions.

Cx Energy also featured the formal launch of EMA with a well-attended organizational meeting and workshop and exam for EMA’s Energy Management Professional certification. EMA responds to the growing importance of managing and reducing energy consumption in buildings by creating a commissioning-based system that incorporates field testing and verification and emphasizes the best interests of the building owner.

EMA membership is open to individuals, corporate suppliers of products and services, building owners, and facility managers. Its mission is to provide guidelines, training, education, and certification programs. The group already has more than 70 member companies including Siemens Industry Inc., EMA's founding industry partner.

Cx Energy’s expo hall showcased a wide variety of companies providing leading-edge commissioning and energy management products and services. The exhibitors’ offerings range from software, controls, instruments, and metering devices to consultative services in engineering and enterprise energy management.

Cx Energy is presented by ACG, an organization of certified, independent commissioning authorities. Supporting organizations are the Associated Air Balance Council (AABC), an association of independent test and balance agencies, and the Energy Management Association.
