Peter Douglas (NYSERDA) discusses
ASERTTI’s paper and poster with
an ACEEE Summer Study attendee.
The ASERTTI Buildings Committee works with public, private and nonprofit
stakeholders to support the development and application of low-impact,
energy efficient building technologies.
The Zero Energy Commercial Buildings Consortium (CBC) was created
in 2009 to address the need for a coordinated, broad-based industry/
government effort to move the entire commercial sector over time, both
new buildings and existing stock, to “net-zero” levels of energy
performance. ASERTTI is a member of the CBC Steering Committee. Two ASERTTI
Members serve as our representatives to the CBC:
- NYSERDA -- Peter Douglas, Director End-Use Application and
- Energy Center of Wisconsin -- Lee DeBaille, Principal Energy

The Buildings Committee presented a research poster at
2012 ACEEE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings. The poster
a visual representation of the committee’s 2012 report,
Building the Foundation for the Smart Grid. The
report aimed to assess the smart grid’s potential to improve building energy
efficiency; identify key technology needs; and catalog policies,
regulations, and practices needed to propel the market for smart grid
technologies that will advance building energy efficiency.
Buildings Committee Webinar
On May 21, 2012, the Buildings Committee hosted a
webinar presentation by Vince Scarfo, Director of Government Relations
at GE, and Mark Johnson of Accountmark, Inc. The guest speakers
presented on the use of infrared thermography to identify building energy
efficiency retrofit needs.
ASERTTI is a member of the High Performance Building
Congressional Caucus Coalition and
has co-sponsored and presented at several of their recent briefings on the
Hill. At the briefing on November 14, 2012 covering “The
Promise and Proof of Net-Zero Energy Schools,” ASERTTI’s Executive
Director, David Terry, was Co-Moderator and gave a presentation on the “National
Perspective on High Performance and Net-Zero Energy Schools.” ASERTTI
on October 27, 2011 a
and Update of Activity at the Greater Philadelphia Innovation Cluster (GPIC)
for Energy Efficient Buildings."
