Intro to Weatherization, Renewable Energy, and Sustainability

Sun People Dry Goods Workshop
Thursday, January 6, 2011
6:00pm – 8:00pm
Buildings consume more energy than any other sector of the U.S. economy – including transportation and industry.  In this workshop, you’ll learn the basic concepts of weatherization, leading building energy efficiency techniques, renewable energy and energy sustainability to help homeowners and business owners pursue greater levels of energy efficiency.
The instructor, David Hales, is an incredible local asset and adept at helping us to sort through the options.  He is an experienced contractor, building scientist, and technical trainer with over 30 years of experience in the construction industry.  Working at Washington State University as a Building Systems and Energy Specialist, his expertise lies in the design, construction, and performance evaluation of energy efficient healthy buildings and he currently provides technical support for the Energy Star Homes Northwest Program, Building America, and utility based programs in the Pacific Northwest. He is an ASHRAE member; has served as a judge for the last 5 years for the NAHB Energy Value Housing Awards and currently serves on the BPI standards committee.

Hales’ recent areas of research have included: performance of vented and unvented crawlspaces; central forced air system efficiency; and in field performance of ductless mini-split heat pumps. He is currently working with the U. S. Department of Energy’s Building America program involves performance monitoring of high performance homes including (2) of the first homes built in the Northwest to the European Passive House Standard.
15 Spaces available.  $15 Fee.
