Free Webinar: Energy Monitoring for Cultural Heritage Institutions, organized by the Image Permanence Institute (IPI)
Friday, February 19th at 2:00-3:00 PM EST
This webinar will explain why institutions should consider energy monitoring, different strategies for doing so, and how the data collected can inform decision-making. IPI’s Christopher Cameron and Kelly Krish will discuss energy use in collecting institutions, and both passive and active ways to reduce it. Martin Schooping from the Golisano Institute for Sustainability at the Rochester Institute of Technology will talk about different strategies for energy monitoring and how to evaluate the subsequent data. Samantha Owens and Stephen Carrick from Glenstone Museum will then present a case study of how they have successfully implemented and used energy monitoring at their institution to inform sustainability goals and make changes. This webinar is funded by an Education and Training grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities; there is no registration fee.
