    Tiny House Movement

    This is a social movement where people are downsizing the space that they live in. The typical American home is around 2600 square feet, while the typical small or tiny house is around 100-400 square feet. Tiny Houses come in all shapes, sizes and forms but they focus on smaller spaces and simplified living. People are joining this movement for many reasons, but the most popular reasons are because of environmental concerns, financial concerns and seeking more time and freedom. Hear from several local tiny house advocates about the choices they’ve made in pursuing tiny house living. 

    Location:

    Granite Reef Senior Center
    1700 N. Granite Reef Road

     

    The lectures are free and open to the public. RSVPs are not needed. For more information, call 480-312-3111.

    In June 2014, the US Environmental Protection Agency proposed new rules (the “Clean Power Plan”) to reduce carbon emissions from existing power plants. Under the proposal, each state must develop a plan to achieve a specific emissions reduction target. Last year, ADEQ conducted a series of stakeholder meetings to discuss potential comments on the Clean Power Plan proposal. In February or March of this year, ADEQ intends to reconvene this stakeholder process to discuss possible strategies for implementation of the final Clean Power Plan.

     

    To build upon and provide additional information to this process, ASU LightWorks will be convening a series of workshops over the next few months. The first two workshops will both take place on Tuesday, February 24th, 9am-1:30pm (lunch included) and/or 2-4:30 pm at ASU SkySong (1475 N. Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ).

     

    The goals for the 9 am-1:30 pm workshop are as follows:

    1.       Provide an update on the EPA’s proposed rule and how it is likely to affect Arizona and other states.

    2.       Begin to explore policy options and scenarios for meeting the EPA’s requirements.

    3.       Identify tools needed to analyze these scenarios in terms of economic impacts, grid reliability, and regional coordination.

     

    The second workshop will run from 2 pm-4:30 pm:

    The US EPA has proposed a new rule that would alter the National Ambient Air Quality Standard for Ozone, from the current 75 parts per billion to between 65 and 70 ppb.  We will host a workshop with two panels on this subject that will achieve the following:

     

    1.       Explore how ozone is formed and how it is measured in Arizona and the wider West.

    2.       Consider the potential implications of the EPA’s new ozone proposal, including how it will interplay with the EPA’s Clean Power Plan in Arizona.

    Please RSVP to Edward.Burgess@asu.edu<mailto:Edward.Burgess@asu.edu.

    A presentation and discussion on the LEED v4 for BD&C: New Construction and Major Renovation requirements and changes from the 2009 version for the Prerequisite Minimum Energy Performance and the Credit Optimize Energy Performance. There are many new prerequisite changes and at the heart of them is the change in the Energy Code Standard. It's not as easy to meet the minimum performance requirements. There are many new mandatory requirements that you can't remove from the design. The course will be an open discussion involving the best processes to meet the prerequisite minimum energy performance and understand where we can get our best bang for the buck in increasing the energy performance of the building.

    Date:  10 Dec 2014
    Time:  11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
    Location:  Okland Construction- 1700 N. McClintock Dr. Tempe, Arizona 85281
     

    In this one-hour presentation you will learn about the changes that come with the latest release of the LEED rating system. As with each iteration of the checklist, version 4 raises the bar in many categories. In addition to increased requirements, this version also introduces a new category, “Location and Transportation.”

    The course will start with a quick comparison of LEED V3 to V4, highlighting the credits we already know and understand. This will progress into the credits that have the same premise but have increased the requirements directly or through referenced documents. Information will be provided on all of the new credits and prerequisites to give a general understanding of the intent and requirements for each.
