The Gulf Coast Energy Conservation Society
MetadataShow full item record
This paper gives the history of the society, outlines the organization, its purpose and benefits to its members. The membership restrictions and details of the program structure used to keep the organization viable are discussed. The present membership, recent meeting topics, and examples of some benefits to society members are also presented. The Gulf Coast Energy Conservation Society was the outcome of informal meetings between Amoco, Union Carbide, and Monsanto back in 1973 and has grown to a formalized society of 29 industrial plants from Galveston, Brazoria, and Harris counties in Texas. The society meets six times per year to exchange ideas and learn about new equipment or technologies that will help them do a better job of saving energy. In addition to the 29 member industrial plants, associate memberships are held by the University of Houston, Texas University, Texas Industrial Commission, and Energy User News. These memberships serve a very useful purpose in keeping the membership informed on what is happening in the academic and governmental areas in regards to energy conservation.
