1. An EETD Seminar on March 12, 2013, speaker Jonh "Skip" Laitner, Senior Fellow and former Director of Economic and Social Analysis, American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE)

    This brief overview will explore possible ways forward that might help correct deficiencies in current energy and climate policy assessments. My own observations since the 1992 Rio Summit (and before) suggest that, among the causes for US reluctance to move more aggressively on energy policy and climate, are economic modeling exercises which have preempted the assessment of a more robust set policy initiatives. Among the missing or miss-specified elements within economic models are critical elements in the disciplines of physics and behavioral and social psychology.

  2. An EETD Seminar on March 7, 2013 - speaker: Phil Price, a Staff Scientist with EETD

    "How much energy did I save by changing the operation of my building yesterday?" That turns out to be a very hard question to answer: you need to know how much energy you would have used under normal operations (the "baseline"), a number you can predict but not measure. In this talk we focus specifically on electrical energy ("electric load") in commercial buildings. Often the load can be broken down into several components that are superimposed on each other: a recurring weekly pattern, an effect of outdoor air temperature, and so on. Some buildings have patterns that are stable over many weeks, in which case even very simple statistical approaches can quantify these patterns and a predicted baseline can be accurate.

  3. An EETD Seminar on Feb. 14, 2013
    Speaker: Malcolm Cook, from Loughborough University (UK)
    Malcolm’s presentation will cover both his research and consultancy activities. This will cover the work he has undertaken during his time spent working with architects on low energy building design, with a particular focus on natural ventilation and passive cooling strategies, and the role computer simulation can play in this design process. Malcolm will talk about the simulation techniques employed, as well as the innovative passive design principles that have led to some of the UK’s most energy efficient buildings. In addition to UK building projects, the talk will include work Malcolm completed as part of the design of the LEED Gold award winning Harm A. Weber Academic Center at Judson University, in Elgin, near Chicago.

  4. An EETD Seminar on Feb. 11, 2013
    Speaker was Dr. Martin Winter, Scientific Director of the MEET Battery Research Center, Institute of Physical Chemistry (IPC) at WWU Münster

    The lithium ion technology is playing a key role in the electrification of the propulsion system in hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and in pure electric vehicles (EVs). The chemist and materials scientists faces this challenge, which derives from the demands for large-scale energy storage and conversion devices for electric propulsion purposes, by development and application of innovative battery components and concepts.
    This overview presentation will give an insight into battery technology from a materials science point of view. Particular attention will be given to the situation in Germany. The presentation material is designed to be understandable to a general audience.

  5. An EETD Seminar on Feb. 6, 2013. Speaker is Punit Desai, with the Green Initiatives/Infrastructure team at Infosys Limited.
    The talk will include an introduction to the Infosys green initiatives group and the work that Infosys is doing to achieve carbon neutrality. The talk will further focus on how Infosys is leveraging its integrated design capability into operations by Integrated operations. We are aware of the benefits of integrated building design approach and have been using it in our designs..
