Heat Pumps and DC Technology: Revolutions in Efficiency and Performance for all Alaska Climate Zones
Paul Cotter, Cotter and Noson Consulting

The Alaska heat pump experiment of the 1980s has been reborn a success! Heat pumps are penetrating all Alaska climate zones and have huge implications on performance, efficiency, and building simplicity and durability.  Part of their success is due to the DC revolution - changing the way we heat, ventilate, light, and control.  This seminar reviews what we know about heat pumps in Alaska and traces the tentacles of DC technology throughout our buildings.  Maybe Edison won after all!

Communication = Success
Petra Sattler-Smith, Lumen Design/Paul Cotter, Cotter and Noson Consulting

Communication is the key to success.  When all parties communicate at the project's beginning, the likelihood of a successful project increases substantially.  This session will highlight the benefits of productive communication in project development and how it is critical to energy efficiency success.
