    Presenter: Greg Stark, PE, Lecturer, Biological & Agricultural Engineering Department, Texas A&M University


    February 11 in Middleton
    February 12 in Ladysmith
    Hosted by Madison Gas and Electric and Xcel Energy in partnership with Energy Center University

    When it comes to the quantity versus quality debate, both are of equal importance when it comes to power. Gain a solid understanding of electrical power quality and its impact in facilities during this half-day session. You'll learn about common power quality disturbances and their origins, as well as how to improve power quality, immunize equipment and control disturbances. We'll explain how to determine whether electrical supplies and equipment are operating within industry standards and how to distinguish between power quality disturbances that are normal and those that are not.

    Hosted by the Energy Center University in partnership with Focus on Energy


    Healthcare facility renovations and additions offer a unique opportunity to evaluate the performance of existing; and consider new energy efficient equipment, systems and controls. The incorporation of these measures into a facility renovation or addition usually presents an attractive return on investment, as well as the opportunity to integrate additional controls and measurement and verification procedures throughout an entire facility. During this webinar, various energy efficiency measures that add little additional cost to renovations or additions will be evaluated and discussed. Learn more and register today.

    December 11, 2014 │ 1–2:30 pm Central │ Live Webinar

    Hosted by the Energy Center University in partnership with Focus on Energy


    Data centers regularly use up to 200 times more electricity than standard office spaces. The good news is that opportunities exist to save energy and money in data centers without sacrificing reliability or compromising critical systems. Join us to take a look at the top ten. We’ll make the case for data center energy conservation measures and highlight those that should not be ignored. From computer room air conditioning unit upgrades to thin client provisioning and decommissioning; we’ll explain when and where energy conservation measures apply, weigh the pros and cons and provide examples to substantiate our claims.

    November 12

    Presenter: Saranya Gunasingh and Scott Schuetter


    Extreme weather events are an area of concern in the built environment and substantially impact building performance and energy consumption over time. There are no guidelines or policies that explicitly address the impacts of climate on energy use in buildings. So, how do we reduce our vulnerability and increase our resilience to this unpredictable operating expense? Join us online to find out: 

    During this webinar, we’ll discuss the projected impacts of climate variability on building energy use and demonstrate a variety of building models that take climate change into consideration. We’ll take a close look at the impacts of future climate variability on energy peak demands, overall consumption, and costs. Real-world examples will also be examined, including a recent climate and energy resilience study completed at NASA's Stennis Space Center Campus.

    November 12 in Madison

    Presenter: John Straub, Principal, Building Science Consulting Inc.


    Airtightness impacts durability, energy efficiency and comfort. Join us to discuss how to address it during the design process and in existing buildings. We’ll take a look at common errors and practical approaches to control air leakage, as well as lessons learned through real-world case studies. Wall, window and roof material selection and assembly best practices will be reviewed and the keys to useful air barrier tests will be examined. We’ll also explain different airtightness testing methods and where they fit in to the building commissioning process. Learn more and register today.

    October 22 in Eau Claire | October 23 in Duluth

    Presenter: Ryan Hoger, Director of Corporate Training, Temperature Equipment Corporation


    Packaged rooftop units are used to easily and effectively heat and cool more than 50 percent of all commercial buildings in the U.S. The question is: How can we make these units more efficient? A recent U.S. Department of Energy study explored this question and the solution is summarized in three words; advanced rooftop control. Join us to explore the DOE’s recent findings, as well as the options available to save a significant amount of energy currently wasted by RTUs. Learn more and register today.

    October 14 in Madison | October 15 in La Crosse

    Presenter: Peter Yost, Principal and Vice President of Technical Services, BuildingGreen, Inc.


    There are ways to insulate, air seal and weather protect the core of exterior walls without breaking the bank, your back or your brain. We'll explain the principles to use when selecting all working elements of building assemblies: framing and sheathing, insulation, water resistive barriers and air sealing. Learn more and register today.
