Thursday, September 25, 2014 - 1:30pm


Macbride Hall Biosphere Discovery Hub
Doug Litwiller (aka ?Professor KW Therm?) is the associate director of Energy Conservation in Facilities Management at the University of Iowa, and is one of many individuals at the university focused on reducing the University of Iowa?s energy consumption.  The ?Professor? will give the audience members a light-hearted look at ?all things energy? including information on how the university is reducing its carbon footprint and how you can reduce energy consumption at home.  The ?Professor? will be answering such as:


?       How much energy does the university consume?

?       What is the university?s energy bill?

?       What is a Kilowatt-hour and why should I care?

?       What does an LED light bulb look like?

?       What is that large building with tall stacks sticking out of it located at the intersection of Riverside Dr. and Burlington St.?

?       What is coal?

?       How do I make sense of my energy bill?

Bring in a copy of your most recent energy bill so the Professor can explain what it means!
