RMAEE April 2016 Newsletter


I hope everyone's week is off to a good start. If you missed last week's luncheon, Brad Queen and Kathy Croasdale provided us with an excellent review of the Center for ReSource Conservation's (CRC) ReNew Our Schools program. They're doing great work over there and seeing the results! If you would like to lend a hand as a mentor (I personally recommend it as a former mentor myself) please reach out to Kathy Croasdale for more information.

STARTING THIS MONTH, in an effort to facilitate interaction with other local chapter organizations, we're pleased to offer a semi-discounted rate to our monthly luncheons for members of the following other local chapter organizations:

  • ASHRAE
  • USGBC
  • CRES
  • RM-AESP

If you have a friend or colleague that is not an RMAEE member but is a member of one of the above organizations, please invite them to our April luncheon!

Sincerely,
Steve Morgan, PE, CEM
RMAEE Chapter President

Serving Aurora Public Schools as its Natural and Renewable Resources Manager, Craig Wright leads a trio of professionals who are passionate about the combined technical and behavioral merits that drive districtwide natural resource conservation. The team’s collaborative efforts, influenced heavily through student engagement, have saved the District over $500,000 in utility costs during the past 18 months, have earned APS positive press from local and national media outlets, regional recognition from the EPA and USGBC - Colorado Chapter, and prestigious recognition as an industry “Innovator.”

Tailored Incentives for Energy Consumption Influencers in the K-12 Market:

The Natural and Renewable Resources Team at Aurora Public Schools (APS) is committed to the proliferation of timely and accurate natural resource cost and consumption information (i.e. electricity, natural gas, water, and landfill and recycling waste,) and empowering building occupants to remedy inefficiencies. APS has embodied principles spawned through its participation in a February, 2014 ReNew Our Schools grant into its own comprehensive sustainable Green Stars Incentive Program, the proceeds of which stem largely from voluntary conservation efforts driven by each school’s empowered student groups. Leveraging readily accessible and easy to understand cloud-based consumption metrics, nearly 1,000 conservation-minded APS students have been credited with the delivery of nearly $80,000 in cash incentives awarded over the past 18 months to participating schools. Furthermore, APS has adopted an innovative high-tech approach toward acknowledging each student’s individual contributions: digital badging.
