Wisconsin commercial building code for low-rise residential application: Do you measure up?

Multifamily projects present unique code compliance challenges. The residential code for one and two family unit homes does not apply – you have to switch to the commercial code for these larger projects. There are mandatory energy calculations that often get missed. There’s slab edged insulation and more. How do some of the changes in Wisconsin’s commercial code affect your multifamily projects? Join us as we explore how Wisconsin’s code has changed. We’ll show you multiple calculation methods you can use to meet the energy code. Our instructor, a code official himself, will share the problem areas he runs into over and over in the field. We’ll walk you through real-world scenarios.

How to increase cooling tower efficiency

Knowing how to make your cooling tower as energy efficient as possible can save your facility energy, water, and operating costs. It can also help extend the equipment service life and decrease the amount of chemicals required for water treatment. So, how do you make your cooling tower more energy efficient?  Join us for a webinar with Kate Brebrick from Kinergetics, LLC. Kate will highlight components of a cooling tower system and opportunities for improving system performance. She will perform a cooling tower performance demonstration to show common efficiency opportunities and their impact. Kate will use examples and real data to illustrate energy efficiency gains.

Load shifting: the market potential for carbon and energy savings

Building code advancements continue to chip away at program baselines. Some of our tried-and-true energy savings measures come close to saturating the market. It's getting tougher – and more expensive - for utilities to meet savings goals. Utilities can prioritize measures that: shift time of use reduce overall energy use, and lower costs and emissions – all without disrupting the grid.  But when load shifting increases overall energy use, there’s a conflict with energy efficiency policy. Load shifting can also create a potential incentive for load building.
