for NECA and the IBEW in Energy Efficiency
and Green Building Power Systems

David Riley, Penn State (coordinator)

With

Tom Glavinich, U. Kansas
John Duffy, U. Mass
Amy Glasmeier, MIT
Purpose
   Initiate strategic activities to capitalize on
    the broad opportunities for E.C. s in Energy
    Efficiency and Green Energy

   Focus on tangible and broad reaching efforts
    that build for the future

Thrust 1: Green Energy Systems Research
Thrust 2: Workforce Development
Thrust 3: Energy Engineering Education
Project Update
 Review Purpose
 Goal and Progress for 6 sub projects
    ◦   1.   Energy Efficiency Technologies
    ◦   2.   Solar PV Course and 3. Training
    ◦   4.   Student Chapter Service Project Design
    ◦   5.   Student Competition Design
    ◦   6.   Marketing E.C. Industry with Solar / Green
   Feedback / Questions from you

   Feedback / Questions from you
5. Student Chapter Competition
Green Energy Challenge
 Student teams conduct energy audit of
  local building (school)
 Develop applicable solution:
 1. Classroom lighting retrofit design/estimate
 2. Develop solution for one owner-identified
    power problem/issue
 3. Incorporate solar or wind power into
    facility
5. Student Chapter Competition

Pilot program ‘09
 ◦   Jan – Competition announcement
 ◦   May – Proposals due
 ◦   July – Finalists selected (in progress)
 ◦   Sept. – Presentations / awards in Seattle
5. Student Chapter Competition

Judging criteria
 Technical solution
 Professionalism
 Interaction with NECA
  Chapter/Contractors
 Outreach / promotion
5. Student Chapter Competition
Observations from pilot
 Good response
    ◦ 9 universities expressed interest
    ◦ 7 submitted proposals
 Student teams seem very motivated /
  interested
 Open-ended nature
    ◦ Allows for creativity
    ◦ Develops broader skills than bid proposal
5. Student Chapter Competition
Observations from pilot
 Need to announce sooner to attract more
  teams
 Judging will be challenging
    ◦ Not apples to apples
    ◦ Will need down-select for semi-finalists in future
   National interest – need to develop aggressive
    promotion program and recognition plan for
    participating teams
5. Student Chapter Competition
Next
 Three finalist teams present solution at
  convention
 All teams display poster
 De-brief with teams / faculty
 Develop plan for 2010
 ◦ Earlier start
 ◦ Semi-final selection added
Thank you!

1. Energy Efficiency Technologies
   Goal: Develop a go-to resource for the E.C.
    industry for energy efficiency technologies
   Progress:
    ◦ Lead student identified: Eric Sauder
    ◦ Template designs in progress
   Feedback Needed:
    ◦ Coupling this site with supplier/distributor
      information for advertising revenue?
    ◦ Including opportunity for E.C. to “rate” or
      provide feedback / revues?
2. PV Systems Online Course +
3. Hands-on workshop design
 Goal: Create an online PV course and
  hands-on training curriculum for the dual
  audience of students and electrical
  contractors
 Progress
    ◦ Piloting hybrid version of course this
      semester (30 students enrolled)
    ◦ Combining online and hands-on in 1st offering
    ◦ Coordination meeting with NJATC 1/27/09
4. Solar Service Program
 Goal: Design a service activity for NECA
  student chapters with Cross-Border
  NECA partners
 Progress
    ◦ Course design Fall ’08
    ◦ Pilot 3/09 in Roatan, Honduras
