Air Policy & Regulations Track
Recently, Rhiana Dornbos, P.E., was asked to speak at the EUEC Conference on the topic of "Air Permitting Challenges for Distributed Generation." During her talk, Rhiana discussed how distributed generation has traditionally been used to supplement centralized power during times of peak demand and explained that as clean energy technologies like solar, wind, and battery storage mature, utilities are likely to transition from centralized power sources to smaller scale, distributed energy models where power generation occurs close to the energy user.
Ohio Stormwater Conference
May 10 - 12, 2017
Heather Audet, P.E. was asked to speak at the Ohio Stormwater Conference on the topic of green infrastructure in Urban Environments. Heather will discuss our West Side Market Parking Improvement Project that reconfigured and expanded the parking lot to create additional parking spaces. In this project, more than 40,000 sf of pervious pavers and a new bio-filtration area were installed to aid in reducing storm water from flowing into the sewer system. Her presentation will describe the planning and process undertaken to complete this project and will explain the environmental, hydrological, and geotechnical testing and analyses that was needed for a parking lot situated near the top of a historically unstable slope.
