Energypath 2016

Farah Ahmad

Thank you Energypath 2016 for a wonderful week at Pennsylvania State University!

I wanted to share some glimpses from an unforgettable conference. I reconnected with industry friends and met new inspirational leaders in the sustainability movement across the United States. I always feel at home when I'm connecting with like-minded individuals striving to fight for the environment and against climate change. I spent an entire week engaging in an energy camp- submerging myself in the fascinating technical building science of Passive House Design. I also attended industry seminars on wind energy, building envelope design, solar implementation & more.

Visited Penn State's MorningStar Solar Decathlon entry! It now proudly sits on campus. Check out more on their project here: http://sustainability.psu.edu/morningstar-solar-home.

I know this photo is blurry! However, the keynote, futurist Jack Uldrich, was incredibly memorable! Uldrich lectured on global trends & argued that technology can pave the way for sustainability- and in fact, is already happening! Technology provides solutions that can eliminate future construction applications.
