The Shifting Energy Cultures Series Wednesday 2/11 12-2PM Hill Conference Room, LeBow Engineering Center, Room 240, Drexel University Lunch will be provided so please RSVP at Eventbrite. Get Smart: The Drexel Smart Campus We all turn on the lights and expect electricity to flow, but how efficient is our energy use on Drexel’s campus? Did you know that our campus uses energy demand management and demand reduction measures? This is the first session in a series of talks on Energy Culture in Smart Campus Environments. Open to everyone, this session will introduce the Drexel Campus Smart Grid: what it is, how it works, and how you can find out more about your own energy usage. Session Speakers: John E. McDonald, PECO Paul Reed, Viridity Energy’s VPower System, Drexel University Chika Nwankpa, College of Engineering, Drexel University Bill Taylor, Mechanical and Maintenance Services, Drexel University ******************** Shifting Energy Cultures is a multi-disciplinary research project funded by the Institute for Energy and the Environment that explores the social ordering of choices, problems and practices that shape “energy cultures” in campus environments. We will use Drexel’s “smart grid” building system as a case study and living lab. This series of talks invites students and others on campus to look more closely at our electricity systems, power usage, and how “smart” technologies are helping us to understand campus energy usage better. A group of invited speakers will help us to bring energy issues to the fore- ground, engaging in discussions of energy efficiency and informing us about what resources exist to manage energy demand on campus, locally in our city, in our region and beyond. The event is co-sponsored by Institute for Energy and the Environment, the Center for STS, the Center for Mobilities Research and Policy, and the College of Engineering. Please also mark your calendars for future series events, scheduled for March 11th, April 8th, and May 27th. Future events: March 11, 2015 Get Your Grid On: Smart Grid, Micro Grid, Off Grid Speakers Include: Will Agate, Consortium for Building Energy Innovation, Navy Yard Kenny Shephard, Azavea Richard Freeh, Mayor’s Office of Sustainability April 08, 2015 Get Innovative with Energy: Research & Innovation Speakers Include: Clinton J.
