The Habitat X Webinars are built with a simple principle in mind: to connect working professionals at their desks in ways that are meaningful and productive. In 2016, we've chosen topics from the Habitat X Strategic Plan that was recently published in Home Energy Magazine.

The 2016 Habitat X Webinars are underway.

Once a month we bring in respected experts to address a topic from the Habitat X Strategic Plan. These are better than the usual webinar, and we run them on a 30-30 schedule -- you can get a quick update in just 30 minutes, or you can stay for the second half of the hour to get all the details.

Join us, at no cost, to learn how effective online collaboration can be.

The Habitat X 2016 Strategic Plan represents an important shift in the trajectory of our organization.

The Plan was created when a group of smart focused people -- the Habitat Xers at the 2015 conference -- decided that they were truly ready to work side-by-side to change the way we design, build, and manage our buildings.

This is our line-in-the-sand for 2016.

An Interview with Larry Zarker of the Building Performance Institute, Kevin Kennedy of Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, and Leif Magnuson of Pacific Gas and Electric Company. Larry, Leif, and Kevin are all engaged in moving their respective organizations toward active roles that connect health and energy. We’ll be keen to learn more about the solid science that connects asthma to poorly-performing homes, and the solid funding mechanisms now in place for the remediation of homes occupied by asthma victims. This interview will be led by Tiger Adolf of UtilityExchange.org.

Thanks for the invite, and thanks for organizing Habitat X! (wish I was there)

The 4th Annual Home Performance Conference of Oregon, on October 14th in Portland, is also focusing on this topic - i.e. the role of Home Performance in the intersection of health & home. I will be listening attentively for threads that can be replicated or expanded upon at our conference and will be reaching out to the panelists after this session to discuss joining our conference to continue this important dialogue.

See you soon!
Don

Energy, experts Leif Magnuson of Pacific Gas and Electric, Ed Thomas of UtilityExchange.org, and Claudia Rapkoch of NorthWestern Energy. There are huge shifts taking place within the utility industry at present, and these changes will be felt throughout the housing industries for years to come. We’ll look to these experts to gain some ideas of what to expect in the future, and how we each position our industries to take advantage of these changes in the way we generate, transmit, and distribute electricity and gas. This session will be moderated by John Dendy of Habitat X, and will include ample Q & A.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Chris Dorsi. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
