Energy Efficiency Featured in Lecture Series at the National Building Museum

May 25, 2006

Energy efficiency in buildings will be featured in a series of lectures at the National Building Museum.  The first in the series, Building Energy Efficiency—A Critical Component of Energy Independence, is scheduled for June 13, 2006, from 12:30-1:30 p.m., in Washington, DC.   

Mr. Phillip Fairey, Deputy Director of the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC), will discuss the critical role that energy efficiency in buildings plays in mitigating energy use.  Attendees will learn how buildings can help reduce demand on declining energy resources, improve price pressures, and pave the way for renewable energy resources used in highly efficient buildings to become a significant component of energy production. Download a copy of Mr. Fairey's presentation, Building Energy Efficiency: A Critical Component of Energy Independence.

Mr. Fairey has more than 25 years experience in building science research. He initiated the building science research program at FSEC in 1980 and has served as Deputy Director of the Center since 1990 and as the Center's Interim Director from 2002 through 2004.  

Anyone interested in building energy efficiency is invited to attend.  Registration is not required.  See the National Building Museum Web site for more information on the lecture series.
