Service Leader: Che' Clark
Over the last year Che’ Clark has been donating his talents and time to The Virginia Gentleman Foundation. They are behind “Camp Grom,” a huge, non-profit project in the Tidewater area. This amazing ...
Saving Water Saves Energy (and Vice-Versa)
Despite the recent, much-needed rains in the western part of our country, many areas have yet to fully recover from historic multi-year droughts. Partly as a result of these droughts, and also ...
Microgrids Boost Renewable Energy Roll-Out
It seems every journal I open gives at least a mention to microgrids. Whether in the context of renewable energy, resiliency, or infrastructure, microgrids are hailed as being the solution to our ...
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in Data Centers
Since we’re in the digital mood today, here’s a less-than-140-character introduction to computational fluid dynamics (CFD): CFD takes a very complex fluid dynamics problem and breaks it up into tiny ...
Data Center Energy Consumption
The digital revolution is here, and data is taking over. Human existence is being condensed, chronicled, and calculated, one bit at a time, in our servers and tapes. From several perspectives this is ...
The Decreasing Cost of Solar Photovoltaic Systems
It's a common belief in some corners that photovoltaic (PV) systems are "incredibly expensive" and "have a payback of more than 25 years." While in many regions of the country, the cost of power ...
Transforming Sustainable Designs into Resilient Designs
It is hard to believe that sustainability has been the focus of innovative designs for nearly 22 years*. The run has been fulfilling and demanding, but it has me thinking what’s the next challenge or ...
The Rise of Direct Current
Just about every discussion of alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) starts with the great debate between Thomas Edison (advocating for DC), and Nikola Tesla, who was ultimately successful ...
Reality Check, Is BIM Living Up to Its Promises?
What if I told you that over 90% of all Architectural, Engineering, Construction, and Operations (AECO) firms are engaged in BIM? Well, according to McGraw-Hill Construction (MHC), the construction ...
Three Questions You Might Have About Building Sciences
What is computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling? Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling uses numerical methods to model almost any phenomena related to fluid flow and heat and mass transfer. ...
