Big thanks to Kevin Campbell from Energy 350 and the 100 attendees (webinar plus in-person) for making this another great Energy Engineering Forum. Below is a link to a copy of the presentation.
http://www.aeecrc.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/May-2018-EEF-Energy-Efficiency-Trends-in-the-Cannabis-Industry.pdfWe are working with Energy Trust of Oregon’s Production Efficiency Program for this May 2018 event. This free event consists of a one hour technical presentation followed by fifteen minutes of Q&A. A complimentary lunch and certificates of attendance will be provided.
Energy Efficiency Trends in the Cannabis Industry
The rapidly expanding cannabis industry is a significant source of load growth in several states that have legalized recreational use. This load growth coupled with inefficient incumbent technology make the cannabis industry ripe with efficiency potential. However, there are a host of technological and social barriers to unlocking this potential. This presentation will provide an overview of the energy using systems, energy analysis techniques, energy efficiency technologies related to cannabis grow operations.
As an Account Manager for Energy 350, Kevin has worked with numerous cannabis growers throughout Oregon to evaluate energy efficiency potential and help them reduce their operating costs. However, his work is not limited to cannabis projects. He has experience working on energy projects throughout the industrial and commercial sectors. Kevin has a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Minnesota and a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering from Portland State University.
