November Recorded ASES Webinar: New ASES Online Community Mentor Match Program

November 16, 2022 | Recording Available Here

The ASES Mentor Match program will be available on the Online Community in November 2022 to reflect our commitment to you and your professional development in the renewable energy and sustainability industry. This unique online networking and career development tool will help you find, connect, and share experiences with others.

Your mentor or mentee can be in the same city or on the other side of the world. Mentors have the opportunity to share their knowledge with Mentees, who benefit by gaining insight from someone with years of experience in their particular field. The ASES Mentor Match Program will provide meaningful connections to be made and gives ASES Mentors and Mentees the opportunity to share resources and experience and work together to achieve professional and personal goals. ASES Members will have access to an additional Directory search with over 15,500 of our members.

December ASES Webinar: Solar Powered EVs-The Next Step in Sustainable Transportation

December 7, 2022 | 2:00 PM-3:00 PM Mountain Time

EVs have only been widely available for a short time, but they may soon be eclipsed by the new technology of Solar EVs. This solar eclipse will start in 2023 as several SEVs will be available for consumers then. These SEVs have built-in solar panels which produce enough electricity for many people to drive daily without requiring any external source of electricity. For road trips or owners who have long commutes, SEVs can be plugged in to charge the battery, like a normal EV, and then topped off daily with the sun. Solar range is accomplished by engineering for weight, aerodynamics, and friction.

SEVs have a lower carbon footprint than EVs because they produce their own energy and are extremely efficient. They are also ideal for owners who don’t have home charging.

This presentation will introduce SEVs and show how you can become an SEV owner.

February ASES Webinar: Passive Solar Design for Homes

February 8, 2023 | 2:00 PM-3:00 PM Mountain Time

The sun is a natural and reliable source of energy. Solar Energy can be used to create electricity, heat buildings, heat water, distill water, cook food, dry food, dry clothes, and power electric vehicles. This webinar will focus on how the sun can heat homes by incorporating basic Passive Solar design strategies to provide from 20-90% of a home’s heating needs with little cooling penalties. Passive Solar energy can lower heating bills and allow PV (photovoltaic) systems to be downsized. Learn how the movement of the sun, siting, building shape, window placement, overhangs, porches, building mass, and insulation work together to warm and brighten homes. The webinar will include examples and design tools by various passive solar experts such Mark Rosenbaum, P.E., Net Zero Energy Instructor; Christopher Gronbeck, Solar Tools Developer, Sustainable by Design; Orlo Stitt, Passive Solar Builder, The Stitt Energy Group, as well as others.
