Green Energy Series #5 Evolving Utility-Customer Relationship

March 4, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Solar Oregon is presenting a Green Energy series – free talks for those interested in learning more about the technologies and design of zero energy buildings. Solar Oregon is a non-profit educational organization leading the way to a clean energy future. These one-hour seminars will explore solar, energy storage, and energy-efficient equipment and design. Envisioned as a follow-up to Solar Oregon’s popular Go Zero home tours, these online talks will encourage a deeper dive into the technology and allow for Q+A discussion contrasting options to aid in decision making. Future talks include: Zero Energy Design, Battery Storage Systems, DIY PV Systems, Heat Pump and other Water Heaters, and Utility-Scale Storage.

All talks will be online, the first Saturday morning of each month, starting November 5, 2022 at 10 AM.

All webinars will be recorded and included on Solar Oregon’s YouTube channel.


Speaker Bio:

Edward Louie works as a Senior Associate Energy Efficiency Engineer at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in the building systems and technology integration group on research projects related to heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, high-performance windows, and remote quality assurance via contractors taking photos of critical details and reporting test results.

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is a leading center for scientific discovery in chemistry, data analytics, and Earth science, and for technological innovation in sustainable energy and national security.

Before joining PNNL, Edward worked as a residential rater/verifier/inspector for three above-code energy efficiency programs in the greater Portland, OR, and SW Washington area. Outside of work, Edward has been working on building a super energy-efficient off-grid all-electric tiny house on a trailer to gain first-hand construction skills and experiences with building and executing high-performance envelopes, installing solar PV and batteries, and more. When complete Edward will live in the tiny house to test whether it is possible to live off-grid with the designed energy systems.

Edward is passionate about residential energy efficiency technologies, building assemblies, and housing typologies.


This event is free and open to everyone.
