February 7, 2012
3 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.
Eastern Standard Time
Did you know a comprehensive Labs21 Tool Kit is available to facility owners, architects, engineers, designers, managers, and others, with resources that help you design, build, and manage a sustainable, high-performance facility? Did you know this resource is available for free? During this High-Tech Talk Webinar, Geoffrey Bell of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory gave an overview of the Labs21 Tool Kit, with highlights and examples of how its lesser known components operate. In addition, participants previewed the Labs21 Laboratory Energy Efficiency Profiler (LEEP) Tool. During this webinar, Mr. Bell highlighted:
- Design Guide for Energy-Efficient Research Laboratories: This searchable reference helps you identify and apply energy-saving features to your laboratories.
- Design Process Manual: This Web-based manual includes a checklist of process-related action items for each stage of the building design and delivery process, with links to the Design Guide and relevant Labs21 tools for each action item.
- Best Practice Guides and Technical Bulletins: This series of publications provides design, construction, and operation information on specific technologies that contribute to energy efficiency and sustainability in laboratories.
This High-Tech Talk Webinar showed how these free, highly valuable tools work.
