Building America Research: Part 2 - What Makes a Successful Project?
Time: Aug. 17, 2016, 3 p.m. ET
This webinar will highlight the Building America FOA process, and highlight currently funded projects that make good business sense as DOE Building America investments. The webinar will show direct connections between selected projects and the Building America Research-to-Market Plan and Technology-to-Market Roadmaps as well as highlight sound research questions, success metrics, and market transformation plans.
Partnering for Improved Building Science Education
Time: Aug. 24, 2016, 3 p.m. ET
Building science skills are the difference between buildings that will work or fail. Yet, there is no consistent platform for ensuring consistent building science skills across all workforce professions engaged in the buildings sector. The DOE Guidelines for Building Science Education are a set of occupation-specific checklists intended to be used by partnering training organizations, universities, and certification bodies to self-certify that their programs include these important aspects of building science in their curriculum. Partners of DOE’s Guidelines for Building Science Education will be highlighted on related websites and potentially receive awards from DOE for their efforts in this area.
Initial feedback from potential partnering professors has been that easy-to-access and up-to-date content is difficult to come by, especially in terms of the specific modules described in the Guidelines. To address this issue, DOE is developing an online database of building science teaching resources, that also supports the job specific checklists in the Guidelines.
As a next step, DOE and PNNL will be hosting a webinar to show off the current progress on the website and discuss the process for your programs to self-certify as partners of this effort.
