Friday, September 30, 2016 from noon to 1 PM

Finger Lakes ReUse Center – 214 Elmira Rd., Ithaca, NY 14850

Could deep energy savings in buildings be easier to achieve than we think? Drawing from his recently released book, Energy Audits and Improvements for Commercial Buildings, Ian Shapiro will take us through real-world examples of deep energy savings, including projects that have reached net-zero energy, and the improvements that were required to get there.

Could deep energy savings in buildings be easier to achieve than we think? Drawing from his recently released book, Energy Audits and Improvements for Commercial Buildings, Ian Shapiro will take us through real-world examples of deep energy savings, including projects that have reached net-zero energy, and the improvements that were required to get there.

Shapiro will review common mistakes, cases where energy savings are frequently overestimated or underestimated, and ways to improve energy audits. He will demonstrate the importance of creative thinking as a tool in the process of translating energy audits into real improvements.

Join us as we delve deeper into this comprehensive guide and discuss best practices that energy managers, energy auditors and other energy professionals can use to transform our buildings, while eliminating energy use and slashing carbon emissions.

Light snacks will be provided and we ask that you bring your own lunch. There will be a book signing following the event and a PRIZE DRAWING for Ian’s latest book, Energy Audits and Improvements for Commercial Buildings.

SPEAKER
Ian is the founder of Taitem Engineering, where he currently delivers training and does research into energy conservation.
