"As a consequence of that acceptance, both of us have been asked to present at the 37th World Energy Engineering Congress in Washington, D.C.," later this year, Bohlman said.
"It's a great honor to be asked to do this," said Bohlman, one of the key players in UND's ongoing sustainability and other green efforts.
The abstract—titled "The Art of Financing, Implementing, and Facilitating an Effective Energy Management and Sustainability Program"--details the history and results of energy efficiency programs carried out by UND Facilities Management. The abstract also details the collaborated effort between UND Facilities and the UND ESSP Department with education, capstone projects, and the University's continuing involvement with public awareness, behavioral change and economic analysis of behavioral change.
ESSP is part of the UND John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences.
"This recent announcement by AEE speaks strongly for UND in support of our energy efficiency and sustainability efforts," Bohlman said.
