Participants will learn how to begin sub-metering utilities on their campus and how this data can inform and justify not only the cost of the sub-meters, but of energy efficiency projects as well.
A strategic framework for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change. Cities utilize climate action plans as roadmaps for achieving emissions reductions and improving community resilience.
Learn about water conservation and reuse at a higher education institution and how that might be applied in a college/university garden setting or at public gardens in a variety of settings/governance structures.
Understanding carbon footprint (CF) terminology and the science underlying its determination is important to minimizing the negative impacts of new product development and assessing positive or negative cradle-to-grave lifecycle impacts.
Researchers from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory evaluated five different LED systems with ALC at a test-bed site in Fort Worth, Texas, and provided analysis of the added savings and costs of the controls as well as guidance on where ALC with
This presentation provides a discussion on design aspects for thermal, CHP, and cooling systems fueled by wood energy. Existing project examples will be used to highlight technology, sizing, and energy system integration approaches.
Supplemental lighting can enhance yield when sunlight is limited, as in winter. As the effect
of frequent cloudy or rainy days in other seasons on plant growth and yield remains unclear,
As indoor horticulture gathers momentum, electric (also termed artificial) lighting systems with the ability to generate specific and tunable wavelengths have been developed and applied.
As LED lighting becomes the preferred choice for industrial applications, it’s more important than ever to understand that not all LED lighting is created equal.
U.S. urban land increased from 2.6% (57.9 million acres) in 2000 to 3.0% (68.0 million acres) in 2010. States with the greatest amount of urban growth were in the South/Southeast (TX, FL, NC, GA and SC).
