DOE Webinar May 25: Energy Conservation Modeling for Weatherization
May 24, 2011
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technical Assistance Program (TAP) for state and local officials will present a webinar Wednesday, May 25, from 1:00 to 2:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time to discuss ways energy experts determine the feasibility and estimate the potential energy savings of specific energy efficiency measures when weatherizing homes. Program administrators can use energy modeling and estimation techniques to determine which energy efficiency measures would be cost-effective and useful for a specific energy efficiency project or program.
This webinar will briefly describe available techniques that program administrators can use to model energy use, which can help them handle a range of complexities found in energy efficiency measures or programs. The presenter will also discuss which energy modeling techniques weatherization grantees should apply to analyze various energy efficiency measures.
The webinar will be presented by Ed Pierce, a member of the senior research and development staff at DOE's Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This presentation was previously scheduled to occur April 27 but was canceled due to severe weather.
This webinar is free of charge, but you must sign up in advance to obtain a URL for the presentation and call-in phone number. You can register online, find information about the presenter, and read background materials and reports on the Technical Assistance Webinars section of the DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory website.
