Day 1 Geothermal 101 Special Offer
This specially priced ($49) bloc of programming is designed for those who want to get acquainted with Geothermal Heating and Cooling. It features these 3 sessions and runs from 9 AM to 12:30 PM on Wednesday, April 18th:
1. The opening keynote address from Alica Barton - President and CEO of the NYS Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) - Learn how New York, under the leadership of Governor Cuomo, is seeing the transition to renewables in the heating and cooling sector.
2. Geothermal 101 - This beginner's tutorial on geothermal is being taught by Jay Egg - geothermal developer and author, who is one of the industry's best communicators. His book Geothermal HVAC - Green Heating & Cooling is a classic, and you'll leave this session having learned the important basics.
3. Each year NY-GEO holds a GeoStar Top Job competition where several finalists get 10 minutes each to show off their favorite installation of the past year. In this session, see how geothermal is applied in many varied circumstances and get a clearer picture of how it might work in your community, your business or your own home. The 2017 GeoStar Top Job was a low income housing project in Lockport NY, which cut energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions and brought AC to many tenants for the first time.
While here, you can meet our 30 exhibitors while munching on snacks during the 11:00 to 11:30 morning break, and maybe even drop off an entry for our How Geo Works contest, showing what you've learned.
