Paul Steffes, CEO and President of Steffes, will be a panelist in the discussion at Clean Innovation: Why It Makes Business Sense about developments in environmentally friendly energy solutions. The discussion is being hosted by Microsoft and the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions at the Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, July 19, 2017.
The panel will explore the business drivers and challenges associated with clean innovation. The issues will include growing demand, competitive concerns, cost pressures, efficiency gains, and enhanced performance. The focus will be on developing new products and solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help support the global economy with new and more efficient industrial technologies.

The Steffes Grid-Interactive Electric Thermal Storage system, known as GETS, is an innovative technology that reduces energy consumption by providing advanced, flexible and fast acting energy storage and grid management for space and water heaters.
