I'm here! I will be doing my best to live tweet the Hampshire County Commission meeting. I will also be presenting on adoption of @IDADarkSky ordinances in our community.

The agenda 1/?
Here is what it looks like inside the room and arriving to the building. The seating is not very accessible for disabled folks, and meetings are held upstairs. 2/?
Present is commissioners Robert Hott, Brian Eglinger and David Cannon. The meeting has been called to order. Meetings from the last meeting were approved with unanimous consent. Commissioners are now giving reports. Brian is speaking about the CVB and putting more funding in. 3/

'Purified Air were tasked to incorporate filtration solutions into the existing #HVAC system of the Houses of Parliament to improve the indoor air quality of the building'.
Purified Air 'achieved this by installing Electrostatic Precipitators (ESP) within the existing Air Handling Units. ESPs vastly improved upon indoor air quality, ensuring that airborne viruses and bacteria were kept to an absolute minimum within the space'
HM Government does NOT seem to underestimate the threat #Covid poses - at least the incorporation of 'virus control air filtration solutions' in certain locations, appears to indicate an awareness of the science, and some common sense.…

@prlambert @energysmartwv @curious_founder One per room is way too many. They’re not small enough and the turndown isn’t low enough for that.
@prlambert @energysmartwv @curious_founder We usually do ducted #heatpumps for the whole house in our #HVAC design projects. When people come to us wanting all #ductless units, we try to talk them into ducted for the bedrooms.
@prlambert @energysmartwv @curious_founder Here's an example from a small high-performance house we did in Virginia.

Loads (in BTU/hr)

Bedroom 1
htg = 1,944
clg = 320

Bedroom 2
htg = 1,454
clg = 511

htg = 1,665
clg = 1,063

Long🧵on the provisions of #BuildBackBetter on all things #electricity & #grid. The act starts w/ ~3bn in loans for electric co-ops @NRECANews, incl. projects w/ #batteries. Co-ops have been very involved in @ENERGY-funded R&D & are now enabled to bring results to practice! 1/
It is funny that in my postdoc work @CMU_ECE & @NRECANews w/ @eeregov funding, we actually studied the added value of #battery to #photovoltaics for residential customers' energy cost savings:… & [1],[3], [4] here… 2/
Another ~10bn to co-ops for loans until 2031 to improve #resilience & #reliability w/ investments in #renewables & #transmission . Co-ops 'own' transmission lines & this money can motivate adjacent upgrades. Also critical that #renewables & #transmission appear together here! 3/

The Concord project opted to go with Solar (PV) connected to an energy storage system (battery storage) in lieu of a backup generator.

This system has been designed to keep the critical loads for the home operational even if the utility power is knocked out.
This includes the backup heating and domestic hot water system (gas boiler with radiant floor heat + indirect hot water tank), the refrigerator, freezer, microwave, TV/WiFi, lighting and receptacles in strategic areas.
The Generac PwrCell provides 18 kWh of battery storage in a single cabinet, and up to 9 kW of continuous power output, enough to power the critical loads for extended periods of time. It can also be expanded to 36 kWh of battery storage in the future should it ever be needed.

Whole building system metric needs to be done to improve energy efficiency, but comes with some challenges.

Some quick thoughts:
US construction is male & white; leading to systemic & intergenerational siphoning of contracts, social relationships & $$$$

Diversity & anti-racist policies need to implemented in bidding & contractors
Existing efforts at Municipal, State, & Federal seek to do ALL the things: gender equity & racial equity --->

This is pretty interesting. The article lays out an existing intellectual divide or siloization between medical professionals/researchers (& the engineers working w/ them) vs aerosol scientists (& the engineers working w/ them). 1/

When I first started reviewing the research on influenza to evaluate the potential for developing a tool to estimate risk of infection reductions via ventilation, filtration, etc., I got some pushback. Engineers steeped in hospital/healthcare design told me... 2/
influenza wasn’t airborne, or at least not enough to present any real threat. Which contradicted what was being said in the aerosol research literature.

So I had the opportunity to experience this intellectual divide first hand. 3/
