    November 12 in Madison

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

    ON-LOCATION COMMERCIAL COURSE


    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.

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

    ON-LOCATION COMMERCIAL COURSE

    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.

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

    ON-LOCATION RESIDENTIAL COURSE

    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.

    October 9 in Sturgeon Bay

    Presenter: Joe Nagan, Owner, Home Building Technology Services

    ON-LOCATION RESIDENTIAL COURSE

    Major changes have taken place within the home building industry in the past 50 years. Well-educated customers have higher expectations; equipment, techniques and materials have advanced; and the whole-house systems approach to residential building has taken hold. These changes can provide benefit or cause problems, such as costly callbacks, if not understood. We’ll explore the whole-house systems approach used to achieve high performance new and existing homes and review real-world case studies in order to point out common building failures while providing multiple solutions.

    Presenter: Mark Bramfitt, Principal, Bramfitt Consulting

    ON-LOCATION COMMERCIAL COURSE

    Is your information technology department doing all it can to save energy? From server closets to massive, stand-alone facilities; data centers of any size are prime candidates for energy efficiency upgrades due to their energy intensive nature. Join us during this full-day course to explore the latest IT trends that are driving the adoption of energy efficiency measures and technologies. We’ll take a close look at various infrastructure management approaches, IT equipment specification and management measures, cooling designs and more through lecture and real-world case studies. In addition, we’ll discuss the barriers to adoption of energy efficiency initiatives, as well as the strategies to overcome those barriers. Learn more and register today.

    Presenter: Gary Shafer, Owner, Shafer Consulting Services, Inc.

    ON-LOCATION COMMERCIAL COURSE
    During this full-day course, we'll discuss how compressed air systems work, the benefits of optimal compressed air system performance, alternatives to using this expensive utility and waste minimization with point of use accountability. The impact of different compressor types, controls and efficiency measuresundefinedsome quick and simpleundefinedwill also be discussed. Ultimately, you'll learn what it takes to make better decisions when it comes to compressed air system changes, as well as how to tailor a compressed air system management action plan.

    ON-DEMAND COMMERCIAL WEBINAR


    Retro-commissioning is a process that can significantly improve asset value, occupant comfort, indoor environmental quality and equipment performance; increase operation and maintenance staff expertise; and drive deep and lasting energy savings. This on-demand webinar offers a brief introduction to the retro-commissioning process and quickly moves into the identification of facility and system characteristics that makeup particularly good or bad candidates for retro-commissioning. The various factors that impact the cost of retro-commissioning will be discussed, as well as the potential benefits of the process while not overlooking those that are non-energy related.

    ON-DEMAND COMMERCIAL WEBINAR

    AFE, AIA, BOMI, IACET, WI DSPS, WI PE

    In the past 10 years, the average gas efficiency of RTUs has moved from 80 percent to just 82 percent and the cooling efficiency of the refrigeration circuits has improved slightly. Learn how to improve the efficiency of existing and new RTUs during this on-demand webinar. Recent DOE research is discussed, products are reviewed, new fan controls are explained and code requirements and standards are summarized.
