This summer is the deadline for all LEED APs to enroll in and complete their LEED Credential Maintenance. While thousands of LEED APs have already chosen their LEED AP specialty, many thousands have not. In fact, I’m one of them.

Commercial Energy Audit – Large Building Blower Door Testing

Thu, 2011-05-05 09:09

I was able to participate in the Large Building Infiltration Presentation at ACI, which conducted a Commercial Building Energy Audit on a 25,000-square-foot commercial building. I participated on a technician level with my friends at Energy Conservatory. I was allowed me to be a "fly on the wall," and it was fascinating to see five Minneapolis Blower Doors in operation. This commercial energy audit was done to the Army Corp of Engineers Standard, which is the best available benchmark for performing a large building energy audit.

Tue, 2011-05-03 14:12

Students met for the first time this week to kick off Everblue’s LEED Project Experience Internship Program to learn about the LEED project process.

America, China, and Energy Security

Simply amazing. That’s how I would describe US Energy Policy. We’re paranoid about national security and the health of our economy, yet we are doing nothing serious to address our biggest security and economic threat – foreign energy imports!

SunShot: A New Apollo Space Program For This Millennium’s Long Shot ‘Moon Shot’

In 1962 President Kennedy told the United States that they’d see a man on the moon by the end of the decade. He played to American’s sense of patriotism, hard work and competition. He reminded us that we do some things not because they are easy, but because they are hard.

The Apollo Project seemed like a long shot to most. Even a moon shot.
