Polly Ledvina, Founder, PSL Integrated Solutions
Richard Morgan, Energy Codes Manager, SPEER
How can we cut down on the enormous amount of energy consumed by buildings? Polly will provide an overview of various energy efficiency services, including audits, building plan analysis, infrared imaging, Energy Star and LEED for Homes consulting, and blower door and duct blaster testing.
Richard will focus on the status of the ongoing Department of Energy Texas Residential Energy Code Field Study and how the data collected in the study will help us prepare for the new Texas 2015 Energy Code that becomes effective on September 1. He will present the initial data collection results of the study, and identify the areas where more education, outreach and training are needed and the tools SPEER (South-central Partnership for Energy Efficiency as a Resource) has developed to meet those needs.
