We have been caught in a scheduling snafu at the Pacific Energy Center that prevents us from visiting the PEC’s Tool Lending Library this week (our presenters have been assigned to another workshop). This week’s visit is CANCELLED. I encourage you to make a quick virtual visit to browse the fantastic tool set that they offer.
We may be able to reschedule the PEC session for later in the semester.
Our class will meet on Thursday in the usual location.
I had originally scheduled the PEC session on 25 September to cover my absence while I present at a conference this week. I will still be missing this class. Lindsay Baker has stepped forward to present the Building Occupant Survey developed by our own Center for the Built Environment. Wurster Hall was surveyed using this instrument in 2005 and the survey instrument should prove useful in our mid-October Wurster electricity curtailment exercise.
As we ended class last week there was some sense of urgency regarding preparation for “Wurster Does the Limbo”. I would like for you to use the remainder of Thursday’s session to caucus around the Wurster Hall baseline topics developed in our last class:
with particular attention placed on preparation for the curtailment event itself.
I am meeting Wednesday with Eli Perszyk, Raul Abesamis from the university’s energy conservation office, and engineers from Quest (consultants for the Monitoring Based Commissioning Project in Wurster). So far, it looks like everyone is signing off on our curtailment idea. Yippee.
