Case Study: City Light’s Miller Microgrid Project Story, Benefits, and Beyond
Tue, Nov 15 | 10am-11am | FREE
The WA State Department of Commerce awarded a grant to Seattle City Light (partnering with Seattle Parks and Recreation) to implement a microgrid project at Miller Community Center in Capitol Hill. The project included the installation of a battery energy storage system, solar panels and microgrid controls. Join us in this special presentation by City Light’s Armando Berdiel and Kincheiu Wei from the Electrification and Strategic Technologies division (EST) as we walk the audience through the microgrid story, current and future plans, and benefits as well as the community value of City Light's first Microgrid!

HVAC Systems Testing for Energy Efficiency - Day 1
Tue, Nov 29 | 10am-noon | FREE

DAY 1 OF 2. In this class, students will learn about the processes and procedures involved in verifying equipment performance as related to incentive application and awards. Specifically, the course offers a review of HVAC systems and equipment, the process of evaluating and testing HVAC equipment, how to identify energy conservation measures by using baseline data, and how to measure and verify equipment performance.

Case Study: CO2 Heat Pump Water Heater Efficiency, Decarbonization, and Load Shift project in a Multi-Family Building
Tue, Dec 06 | 10am-11:30am | FREE
With an eye towards environmental stewardship, the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) and Ecotope, Inc. worked together on a pilot with support from Sky Centrics and Seattle City Light (among others) to undertake the retrofit pilot project: replacing the electric resistance water heaters with an ultra-efficient CO2 commercial heat pump water heating system. The new system reduced the building’s energy use from about 230,000 to 95,000 kilowatt hours per year, or about $15,000 in operational savings annually (using $0.11/kWh electrical rate) compared to the electric resistance system it replaced. Assembled as a skid in a factory, delivered onsite by truck, and lifted onto the building’s roof via a crane, the installation was achieved in a single afternoon, with minimal disruption for residents.
