Event Details

This 3-day course examines higher order principles of sustainability, methodologies for improving the design process, and specific techniques for substaintially increasing the efficiency of energy and water-using systems. The curriculum focuses on the integrative design process, applied engineering principles, and proven best practices for utilizing energy and water resources more efficiently across different applications. Opportunities for savings include system optimization, sustainable design, equipment elimination, deployment of energy efficient technologies and techniques, and proven best practices. The course is derived primarily from materials developed by the internationally famous Rocky Mountains Institute and its network of focus of consultants, and is illustrated with numerous case studies.
