Jim Lambert kicked off the meeting with his experience with greenhouse gas and energy audits. He audited his 1950’s era house.
Next, Michael O’Connell presented a whirlwind runthrough of his 83-slide presentation, which was packed with info on how to accurately and precisely audit energy consumption in our homes. Michael pointed out that using electricity to heat our living spaces or water is very expensive. Michael noted that when conducting an energy audit one needs to clarify the objective of the audit: minimise expense of energy consumed or the GHG produced or both.
Chris Moss presented on conducting water audits starting with reading our water meters correctly and using the meters to detect leaks.
Mike Jorgensen finished up with a brief discussion on conducting a water audit at a local primary school.
