The Center for Energy Policy and Management draws on leaders in science, industry, government, and academia to discuss important issues related to energy production, transmission, and consumption.
Given the CEPM's location in Washington, Pennsylvania, the "energy capital of the east", the Center strives to include the surrounding community in these discussions by offering a host of programs, lectures, and workshops. A key component of this programming is the Energy Lecture Series which is free and open to the public. The Energy Lecture Series coincides with the academic calendar at Washington & Jefferson College.

Sustainability and energy conservation are of the utmost importance in the built environment and in moving towards an energy efficient and sustainable future. Cutting-edge technologies and methodologies contribute in many ways to the final design and uses of facilities and help bring us to that future. This interactive program will help participants understand which certification programs and/or guidelines make the most sense for their facility or project.
In this session, architects from IKM Architecture, Melanie Como Harris and Catherine Adams ,will discuss four of the current cutting-edge programs for building sustainable structures- The Living Building Challenge, LEED, Well Building, and Passive House. The speakers will examine the criteria for each and help participants understand how to navigate the programs moving forward.
