Advanced Energy Design Webcast for K-12 Schools

DOE Webcast April 16: Advanced Energy Design Guide for K-12 Schools
The U.S. Department of Energy, through its EnergySmart Schools initiative, is hosting a no-cost, live webcast on Thursday, April 16, 2009 at 1:00 pm Eastern Standard Time, entitled "Implementing Recommendations from the Advanced Energy Design Guide for K-12 School Buildings." Presenters Paul Torcellini and Shanti Pless of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will provide a comprehensive overview of the Guide, including recommendations based on climate zones to achieve 30% energy savings over baseline standard in both new and renovation school building projects.
The webcast training will include a 90-minute presentation followed by a 30-minute live question and answer session, and is targeted towards school administrators, engineers, architects, contractors, and designers working on new school building or major renovation projects. Participants who are also members of The American Institute of Architects (AIA) are eligible to receive 2.0 AIA/CES Learning Units (HSW/SD) for successful completion of the training.
An online webinar will be available after April 16 for those not able to attend the webcast. Please see the EnergySmart Schools Web site for more information or to register for the webcast at
