One of SSOE Group’s sustainability experts recently presented at the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Ohio Valley / Great Lakes Regional Training Conference, August 31- September 2, 2010 in Dayton, Ohio. The presentation titled, “Comprehensive Renewable Energy Study: Maximize Renewable Energy Investments” was chosen for the abstract category “Challenge” in line with this year’s technical program “Challenge. Revitalize. Transform.” The presentation covered how, through a comprehensive renewable energy study, attendees can construct more specific / cost effective renewable energy system RFP’s with specific technology and energy production requirements. This, of course, results in a more effective comparison of system proposals and ultimately maximizes renewable energy dollars invested.
The presentation was given by SSOE’s Zach Platsis, LEED AP O+M . He specializes in sustainability planning as well as the selection and implementation of alternative energy and advanced energy technologies. Zach leads sustainability audits as well as renewable energy surveys, studies, and recommendations; he also evaluates emerging alternative and renewable energy technologies. In 2010, SSOE ranked 2nd among Green Industrial and Manufacturing Design Firms and 2nd among Solar Generation Design Firms (ENR Top 100 Green Design Firms, 2010).
The SAME Ohio Valley / Great Lakes Regional Training Conference brought public and private industry leaders together to share their successes and challenges with conference attendees.
