Energy Engineering for Non-Engineers: Sweetened and Condensed
February 28 @ 3:00 pm - 4:20 pm ESTFree
As a sustainability change agent, you may not have a background in engineering, but developing a basic fluency in energy engineering terms and concepts can empower you to participate in and facilitate decisions that have significant impacts on how your campus achieves its climate goals. This webinar provides a broad overview on technical concepts in energy engineering for sustainability managers and other non-engineering staff. Taught by Chris Lewis, Energy Efficiency Manager at GreenerU, and Alex Davis, Sustainability Program Manager at Babson College, this workshop will help you feel more prepared to take on your next energy efficiency project on campus.
Chris Lewis, Energy Efficiency Manager, GreenerU, Inc.
