A+ Energy Education
Students are heading back to school.  My grandchildren went back to school today.  I always looked forward to the start of a new school year.  It was a time to meet new friends, get up to date with old friends and learn new subjects.  Do we have the same enthusiasm to keep up to date with our energy education?  When was the last time you attended a local dinner meeting with an energy related topic or attended a conference?  Now is the time to look forward a few months to opportunities to hone our energy skills.  Many organizations such as the Association of Energy Engineers, IEEE, ASHRAE, Association for Energy Economics, the Green Building Council, utilities and universities offer local to International training programs and conferences.  Many of these meetings are free or a minimal cost to cover a meal.  Here is a list of energy related training programs for your consideration:
"Impact of Growing Oil and Gas Production on Energy Analysis", 20 September 2013, and  
"Emerging Energy Policy Approaches in the Administration's Second Term", 18 October 2013.  The National Capital Area Chapter of the United States Association for Energy Economics, Carmine's Restaurant, Washington, DC.
