Do you know the extra energy savings potential Tier 2 power strips have over Tier 1? Join our two presenters as they discuss the results from their Tier 2 Advanced Power Strips field study. They will discuss plug load energy consumption and the impact on overall building energy consumption. They will present the energy saving and user feedback results for two different Tier 2 devices. Attendees will understand how to develop a plan for implementing plug load savings strategies and how to identify and overcome implementation difficulties.
Who should watch?
Government building owners and managers, IT managers and operators, facility managers, maintenance staff, utility reps, energy project managers and anyone interested in advanced power strips.
As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:
Recognize the impact of plug loads on overall building energy consumption.
Discuss the operation and energy saving potential of Tier 2 advanced power strips.
Record a plan or ideas for implementing plug load savings strategies, specifically for Tier 2 advanced power strips.
Identify and overcome typical implementation difficulties.

Questions and answers
Greg Marsicek PE
Greg uses energy modeling software (TRNSYS, eQuest, and others) to analyze buildings and energy systems. He uses this information to help buildings owners and design teams make informed design decisions. No building or project is the same and thus there are no “cookie-cutter” solutions or modeling approaches. Greg is an experienced TRNSYS user and has FORTRAN programming knowledge. He is an active ASHRAE member. Greg earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

Devin is primarily focused on the Energy Intelligence program, finding no-cost/low-cost energy saving options for Minnesota’s small and medium sized manufacturers. He collects and analyzes real time interval data and relays information to businesses on their load shape and areas of potential savings. He led the field work and measurement of the Tier 2 Advanced Power Strip project.
This project was supported in part by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Commerce, Division of Energy Resources through the Conservation Applied Research and Development (CARD) program, which is funded by Minnesota ratepayers.
