Professionals in the residential new home energy efficiency industry, including:
Join us for an exciting panel featuring energy decision makers throughout the Northwest. Gain insight on residential new construction program development and collaborate directly with some of the leading voices in our industry.
Join us October 10 from 4-5 p.m. for a field site visit to the 2018 River Street Lofts, one of the first projects to participate in the Idaho Power Residential New Construction Pilot Program. The site is being constructed by Energreen Development Company and is located at 535 S. 15th St., a short 20-minute walk or 5-minute drive from the Grove Hotel.
Featuring high-performance HVAC systems, high-efficiency windows, increased insulation values and tight building shells, the condos are expected to be more than 50 percent more energy efficient than homes built to standard state energy code and earn the ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes label.
Most of us get up every morning and tackle our daily challenges with some degree of courage, but truth be told, we’re all afraid of something lurking under the bed (metaphorically speaking). But being together after dark can turn fright night into something fun – remember ghost stories around the campfire? So this session is about collectively yanking the covers off the boogeyman – in a spirit of good humor and play.
In our industry, we’re headed for some big changes, and change inevitably provokes concerns. Architects may be worried about having to incorporate new, unfamiliar technologies. Raters face the constant threat of angering clients who blame them for enforcing ever more rigorous standards. Builders may be afraid of investing in new home designs that buyers won’t like. Many utility executives fear coming disruptions in their business models.
Shining a bright light on things that scare us – and seeing them through others’ eyes – can radically change our perspective on them. We’ll use new insights we gain by scrutinizing these shadowy fears to transform them into tools for change.
This event will be interactive, irreverent and maybe even downright silly – but with serious intent. Come prepared to talk, reflect, imagine, role-play, problem solve – and enjoy spending time and swapping ideas with your co-creators of the energy revolution.
