Super-Insulation Symposium Warren Vermont

June 23 -- Alex Wilson, moderator

Super-Insulation Symposium:
A Lively Discussion on the Best Methods to Reduce Energy Consumption in Vermont

Do you think you have super-insulation figured out? At the capitol of design/build, we will hash out the details and best practices of one of the most important elements of any "green" building in Vermont. It is time to make sure we are advancing the state of super-insulation in the state that needs it most. How much? What kind? What about window edges? Under the slab? Hot roofs or tight conditioned spaces? Are you counting your thermal bridges? What's your whole wall U value? What's it cost? How much wood do you burn? Passive House? Building America? In an informal atmosphere, we will see a series of projects and systems that will spark lively debate and support the development of Vermont's approach to climate change, atmospheric pollution, peak oil, wars for oil, and the rising cost of heating fuel - or just a common sense approach to building here in the Northeast. Bring your thinking cap and an open mind.
