        Navigating Financing Options for Energy Efficiency

        A webinar with DOE Better Buildings

        Energy efficiency financing has come a long way in recent years. Building owners and operators are increasingly taking advantage of third-party capital to get projects done, with a variety of traditional and innovative financing structures available. However, decision-makers often struggle to understand the nuances of these options, overcome decision fatigue, and select the best choice. Joe Indvik of JDM Associates will introduce the Better Buildings Financing Navigator, a new Department of Energy tool that addresses this problem by helping organizations find financing options that fit their unique needs. He’ll also discuss the state of the efficiency financing market, including key trends, open questions, and future outlook.

        People Powered: Leveraging Employee Engagement to Accelerate Sustainability Efforts

        A webinar with Cool Choices

        Many sustainability efforts focus on technology—saving energy via lighting retrofits, for example. When organizations want to achieve breakthrough results, the focus has to broaden from technology to operations—to the practices of the human beings who make up the organization. Ultimately employee engagement is critically important to sustainability efforts, which means it is vital that sustainability leaders have expertise in this area. We’ll review the business case for engaging employees around sustainability and then provide real-world examples of what works as well as an overview of best practices based on behavioral theory so attendees can immediately apply tools and strategies in their daily work.

        The Role of Daylighting in Energy-Efficient, Sustainable, and Profitable Product Manufacturing Facilities

        A webinar with Solatube

        In today’s world of highly-competitive, global product manufacturing, effectively incorporating energy-efficient, sustainable design elements into manufacturing facilities can make the difference between being successful or becoming irrelevant. One design element that can serve as a global solution addressing factors of energy-efficiency, facility sustainability, and supporting end-product quality is the use of daylight as a sustainable source for facility lighting. Today’s advanced daylighting products can provide an effective manufacturing facility design solution that greatly reduces the need for electric lighting use and electrical loads during daytime hours, reduces a facility’s carbon footprint, reduces potential cooling loads within the facility with increased worker comfort, and supports the production of first-rate products with high yields.

        During this webinar, participants will learn about the types of daylighting technologies that are applicable to manufacturing and industrial facilities, the role that effective daylight solutions play in achieving an energy-efficient and sustainable design solution, and other tangible benefits that that effective daylighting can provide. Case studies will be presented that illustrate the many benefits of quality daylighting in multi-national manufacturing facilities.

        Energy Storage: A Vital Element in a Lower Carbon World

        A webinar with Calmac

        Whether the reason is energy independence, national security or climate change, reducing our use of carbon will be critical to our society’s future. One critically important aspect of fossil fuels is that they are not just a form of energy, they are a form of “stored” energy. If we are going to reduce our dependence on them by using renewable energy such as wind or solar, which are forms of pure energy, we will also have to replace the storage aspect of the them. This webinar will cover energy storage on both the grid side and building side of the meter along with their respective applications.
