I trained home energy auditors for St. Louis County Missouri in 1977 to provide free energy audits for homeowners (training tapes still available). Taught Passive Solar Design courses, training home builders, across the country under contracts to regional solar commercialization centers and to manufactured housing companies under a SERI (Solar Energy Research Institute – NREL predecessor) contract. Building Operator Certification trainer per Northwest Energy Efficiency Council program for state programs across the State of Missouri. The ERG team developed one of the first microprocessor based 32 channel data acquisition systems to support passive solar retrofit research efforts. Developed one of the first appliance power monitoring systems, “Energy$Teller” to support the concept of “informed consent” with respect to home electricity use. It was marketed to the utility industry (IOUs, Munis, & Coops) when DSM was in vogue (died when utility deregulation happened). Volunteered for 10± years on the ASHRAE Standards Project Committee 90.1 – developing the energy efficiency guidelines for buildings over 3 stories – helping to develop the first version of the Energy Cost Budget compliance path.
