The prime location of the EEB Hub Lounge near Registration at Greenbuild 2013 on November 20-22 made it easy for the conference’s international audience to come in and catch a glimpse of the innovation in energy efficiency that is being spearheaded by the EEB Hub, which was proud to represent the Philadelphia region given its headquarters at The Navy Yard in Philadelphia. Outside of the Lounge, researchers from the EEB Hub showcased their expertise at the conference’s educational programming.
Wednesday’s lineup of educational programming at the EEB Hub Lounge was packed with fifteen separate 15-minute presentations by EEB Hub researchers. These topics ranged from the Integrated Design Retrofit Roadmaps to Navy Yard Building 101 Instrumentation to NJIT’s Saving Energy in Leased Spaces Toolkit. In addition, the U.S. Department of Energy shared the EEB Hub Lounge space throughout Greenbuild and performed a live demonstration of the DOE’s Commercial Building Energy Asset Score.
A graduate student poster session at lunchtime allowed for conference-goers to hear first-hand about the academic forces driving the EEB Hub’s public-private research consortium. Masters and PhD-level students from Carnegie Mellon and Penn State University proudly displayed their data-rich analysis of commercial building tools currently being funded for investigation.Read More
